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

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, Agins has written for the New York Times, Time Magazine, Vogue, The Oprah Magazine and Essence.

She will discuss her new book and her career as a fashion business writer and will give HU students advice on reaching their potential in the field of communications.

Agins recently released her second book, "Hijacking the Runway: How Celebrities Are Stealing the Spotlight from Fashion Designers."
