NEW YORK — In the midst of what is shaping up to be a banner year, Thom Browne was honored Thursday night with this year’s Pratt Fashion Visionary Award.
First Lady Michelle Obama wore a Thom Browne ensemble for Inauguration Day and the designer staged his first full-fledged women’s runway show earlier this year. But Thursday’s honor, which Hamish Bowles presented, was right up there with the year’s achievements, according to Browne.

"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.
