Allison Mussoline

Outgoing by nature, Allison finds inspiration in the people and conversations around her. Leave her alone for a few minutes and you are sure to find her talking to anyone charmed by her gregarious personality.    


Allison is originally from Pennsylvania but has also lived in Massachusetts and Italy.  She now has called New York home for the past seven years.  After receiving her bachelor’s degree in International Merchandising Management from The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), Allison began her career working in the apparel industry.  Through her focus on product licensing and brand management, she has established a strong understanding of both the product development life cycle and the creative design process.    


Allison looks forward to receiving her Master’s in Branding at SVA, as she feels it is the next step in elevating her career, while also discovering her personal brand.  She is excited to work alongside her talented SVA peers to master the intellectual link between leadership and creativity through critical evaluation of brand and design strategies.  In her free time, you can find Allison spending time with family and friends, traveling, or searching for the newest speakeasy to try.
