The Couture Council to Honor Carolina Herrera

The designer will receive the 2014 Artistry of Fashion award at the The Museum at FIT's annual benefit luncheon.

HERRERA’S HONOR: Carolina Herrera will receive the 2014 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion at the annual benefit luncheon, to take place at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center Sept. 3, kicking off the spring 2015 collections in New York. The lunch is hosted by The Couture Council of The Museum at FIT and chaired by Julie Macklowe and Elizabeth Musmanno. “I have great admiration for The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology — it’s a vital link between fashion, culture and history,” Herrera said. “The work of the museum gives our industry a stage to express cultural relevance in a historical context, engaging an audience beyond fashion, beyond New York.”

Valerie Steele, the museum’s director, added, “Carolina Herrera exemplifies the woman of style who is a very special kind of fashion designer. Like Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel, Carolina Herrera became famous for creating the kind of elegant, beautiful clothes that she herself wears.”
