Couture Council honour goes to Carolina Herrera in NYC
FIT for a queen
Wearing a three-quarter-length sleeve ivory silk and cotton dress of her own design, Carolina Herrera epitomised elegance and grace at the Couture Council of the Museum of FIT's annual luncheon on Wednesday.
The host of the afternoon fête was Late Night host Seth Meyers, who introduced Herrera and joked around with the audience as he awarded her with the 2014 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion.
The Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion – which is awarded by the Museum Board of couture at the Institute of Fashion Technology – has been given out for the past eight years, and who gets to decide who receives the prestigious award are some of the fashion world's most prominent journalists, editors and critics, such as Hamish Bowles, Suzy Menkes, and Linda Fargo.
"She's a great girl and a great designer. This is an important day for Carolina and for our industry in general." says Oscar de le Renta, who was recognised with the Couture Council award last year.
