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.
