FIT HONORS: This year, the Fashion Institute of Technology Foundation will once again hand out several honors at its annual gala, scheduled at Cipriani 42nd Street on June 10. The honorees are Ann Inc.’s president and chief executive officer Kay Krill; W Magazine editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi (who is said to be receiving his first-ever honor) and New York real estate developer George Kaufman, chairman of the Kaufman Organization.
Of the trio, FIT president Joyce F. Brown said, “Each brings a wealth of experience, expertise and creativity to their respective fields.”
Liz Peek, who became chair of FIT’s board of trustees last year, serves as one of the cochairs of the event alongside Pamela Baxter, Julie Greiner, Yaz Hernandez, Jane Hertzmark Hudis and Joy Herfel Cronin. The event raises money for the FIT Educational Development Fund.
