BIG VISION: Thom Browne is getting the Pratt Fashion Visionary Award next week at the institute’s annual fashion show, and presenting the award will be a past honoree, Hamish Bowles. The Vogue international editor at large received the honor in 2011. Other past honorees include Fern Mallis, Narciso Rodriguez and Diane von Furstenberg. Browne agreed to receive the award late last year, and the Pratt Institute made the news official shortly after First Lady Michelle Obama chose one of his designs to wear to the presidential inauguration.
