Scott French brings to Kent State a broad skill set within the fashion industry with an eclectic experience ranging from retail and wholesale, to design and production. Scott has a solid understanding of every aspect vital to any collection's success. He has been designing under his own label since the late 1980s and has presented collections in both the Women's and Men's intimate apparel and sleepwear markets (under the label French Jenny) as well as his own namesake collection of designer Men's and Women's sportswear since 1999.
