Presenting Sponsor of The Couture Council of The Museum at FIT Luncheon
On September 22, we participated in The Couture Council of the Museum of FIT luncheon as a presenting sponsor honoring Wes Gordon, creative director of Carolina Herrera with its 2021 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion. The luncheon benefited the recently reopened Museum at FIT (MFIT), New York City's only museum dedicated exclusively to the art of fashion.
The Couture Council is a committed membership group that supports The Museum at FIT. The Couture Council helps make it possible for the museum to mount world-class exhibitions that educate and inspire, to build and conserve its extraordinary permanent collection, and to organize free public programs that serve FIT's 10,000 students as well as the general public.
Designers who have received the Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion include Christian Louboutin (2019), Narciso Rodriguez (2018), Thom Browne (2017), Albert Kriemler of Akris (2016), Manolo Blahnik (2015), Carolina Herrera (2014), Michael Kors (2013), Oscar de la Renta (2012), Valentino (2011), Karl Lagerfeld (2010), Dries Van Noten (2009), Isabel Toledo (2008), Alber Elbaz (2007), and Ralph Rucci (2006). In 2008, Giorgio Armani received a special award for Global Fashion Leadership.
