Pentagram Designs Indentity for New Fashion Law Institute

The other day when we posted about the opening of Fordham University‘s new Fashion Law Institute, the world’s first research and educational center focused on the fashion industry, we inadvertently missed an important part of its launch. Our pals over at Pentagram dropped us a line to let us know that they’d designed the identity for the new Institute. Some words about its making:

Pentagram’s identity for the institute graphically fashions a gavel from a needle and spool of thread. The mark is the latest in our collection of identities for New York’s fashion community, which includes logos for the CFDA, 7th on Sixth and the Fashion Center.
