Hats off to Tommy Hilfiger, who is celebrating the 25th anniversary of
his fashion business this year! The iconic designer helped to put American sportswear on the global fashion map, just one of the reasons Hilfiger will be receiving one of the prestigious Legends Awards from the Pratt Institute.
On Oct. 20, Pratt is honoring Hilfiger at the Legends 2010 scholarship
benefit alongside artist Ellsworth Kelly and philanthropist and arts patron Emily Fisher Landau. Pratt president Thomas F. Schutte and board of trustees chair Mike Pratt will host the gala event at 7 World Trade Center, with Kurt Andersen, Amy Cappellazzo and Marjorie Kuhn serving as the night’s co-chairs.
For his sporty, preppy cool style, Hilfiger will be joining an extensive list of fashion types that have received
the school’s honor. The Legends Awards were founded by Pratt in 1999,
and past honorees include Marc Jacobs, Pauline Trigère, Emanuel Ungaro, Cathy Hardwick, Kenneth Jay Lane, Mary McFadden, Takashi Murakami, Stephan Weiss and Joan Rivers.
