Sitting on a card chair in a noisy corridor at the Fashion Institute of Technology might seem pedestrian to some, but not for John Galanos, who did so with his trademark élan last week.
Dressed in a navy pinstripe suit and white-collared shirt, the designer gamely agreed to answer a few questions after an event in his honor, and an unusual one at that. The West Coaster was back in Manhattan, thanks to the philanthropist Doug Simms, who has given the school 18 Galanos-designed pieces that belonged to his mother, Marie. In turn, seniors in the fashion design department's associate of applied science class drew inspiration from Galanos' work for their spring exhibition.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
