NEW YORK — Reed Krakoff is the first to admit that he wasn’t the greatest student at Parsons, but he nonetheless learned several key career lessons there.
On Monday night, he recalled a few of those at the Parsons Fashion Benefit, where he was being honored for his contributions to the fashion industry and his career, which has taken him from Anne Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren to Coach Inc., which he, in tandem with Lew Frankfort, transformed into a $4 billion leather goods powerhouse.
