The Hampton University Scripps Howard School of Journalism & Communications will host fashion business writer, Teri Agins, during the live taping of The Caldwell Café on March 18, 2015 at 6 p.m. in the Scripps Howard TV studio.


Fashion business writer, Teri Agins.

Agins is one of the most knowledgeable journalists regarding the business of fashion. She earned her stripes as a respected journalist in the fashion world during her years at the Wall Street Journal. A talented writer, she wrote for the New York Times, Time Magazine, Vogue, The Oprah Magazine and Essence.

Agins will discuss her new book, her career as a fashion business writer and give HU students advice on reaching their potential in the field of communications when she appears as a guest on The Caldwell Café.

Agins recently released her second book, “Hijacking the Runway: How Celebrities Are Stealing the Spotlight from Fashion Designers.” She discusses how celebrities used to simply be “walking billboards” displaying the latest from big name fashion designers, but now are creating their own brands, modeling them and reaping the benefits of sales.

The Caldwell Café is named after Earl Caldwell, a nationally renowned journalist, who is a writer-in-residence with the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications. His series was designed as a vehicle for Caldwell to expose students to media and journalism professionals.
