IT TAKES A LEGEND: Pratt Institute will honor Iris Apfel, Paper magazine’s Kim Hastreiter and David Yurman with this year’s Pratt Legends awards Nov. 20 at the Mandarin Oriental.
The bespectacled, designer aficionado Apfel is also known as a designer in her own right. Hastreiter co-founded Paper and remains its avant-garde editor-in-chief. Yurman is another well-known fashion type, as designer and chief executive officer of the accessories company that bears his name.
This year’s gala will be chaired by Judith and Bruce M. Newman and Jane and David Walentas.
