Mission Field - Fashion

Amy Hauptman
July 19, 2013

“I’d say at best, the church ignores the fashion industry,” said Amos Chiou, graduating senior at Cornell University. “I’d say at worse, the church is the one lambasting the industry for any number of reasons—body image, sexualization, materialism, etc. It’s not that these reasons are not areas of concern, but fashion and retail are more visible in today’s culture than, for example, the legal field or medicine; thus the sins of the fashion world are unfairly magnified compared to other industries.”

After graduation, Amos Chiou, former InterVarsity chapter president at Cornell, is starting his new job post-graduation, working for Saks Fifth Avenue in New York city, where he is joining their prestigious merchant training program for future buyers and planners.
