The Couture Council of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology honored Carolina Herrera with its 2014 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 at a benefit luncheon at the David H. Koch Theater, Lincoln Center, New York City. As has become tradition, this luncheon heralds the arrival of Fall Fashion Week.

This year’s luncheon co-chairs were Julie Macklowe and Elizabeth Musmanno.

Honorary luncheon chairs were Maria Cristina Anzola, Amy Fine Collins, Emilia Fanjul, Carolina Herrera De Báez, Julie Koch, Alexandra Kotur, Patricia Lansing, Lucy Liu, Marigay McKee, Alexi Ashe Meyers, André Leon Talley, Lynn Wyatt, and Renée Zellweger.

Luncheon guests included Maria Cristina Anzola, Glenda Bailey, Hilaria Baldwin, Dennis Basso, Dr. Joyce F. Brown, Serena Boardman, Graydon Carter, Amy Fine Collins, Oscar and Annette de la Renta, John Dempsey, Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia, Linda Fargo, Jay Fielden, Fe Fendi, Kathleen Hearst, Yaz Hernández, Reinaldo Herrera, Donna Karan, Mariana Kaufman, Julia Koch, Alexandra Kotur, Steven Kolb, Kenneth Jay Lane, Patricia Lansing, Ralph Lauren, Alexandra Lebenthal, Lucy Liu, Aileen Mehle, Seth and Alexi Meyers, b Michael, Josie Natori, Liz Peek, Marc Puig, Emilie Rubinfeld, Martha Stewart, Gina Sanders, Abigail Spencer, Dr. Valerie Steele, André Leon Talley, Stefano Tonchi, Ivanka Trump, Linda Wells, Jacqueline Weld Drake, Anna Wintour, Lynn Wyatt, and Renee Zellweger.

FIT President Joyce F. Brown said, “It was our pleasure to honor Carolina Herrera today. She is a brilliant and beloved designer whose name is synonymous with elegance and grace—and whose success is an inspiration to women throughout the world.”

 

Dr. Valerie Steele, director of The Museum at FIT and chair of the Couture Council Advisory Board, explained, “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. Mrs. Herrera is her own best model, and many women today want to look like her.”

Couture Council chair Yaz Hernández said “Every woman in New York wants to be like Carolina Herrera. She’s created a world in her home, in her atelier, and in her boutiques that is sophisticated perfection. As a philanthropist, she is one of the few leaders who never says no.”

Carolina Herrera said, “It is an honor to be the recipient of the 2014 Couture Council Award. I have great admiration for the Museum at FIT because it is link between fashion, culture and the rich history of our industry.” 

Each year the Artistry of Fashion award winner is chosen by the Couture Council Advisory Board, which includes fashion journalists, editors, retailers, and curators, including Glenda Bailey, Hamish Bowles, Ken Downing, Linda Fargo, Nicole Fischelis, Akiko Fukai, Pamela Golbin, and Suzy Menkes. Dr. Steele explained, “The committee’s mandate is to look, not only at the previous year’s accomplishments, but at a lifetime of contributions to fashion. They chose Carolina Herrera to receive the 2014 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion for a combination of reasons: because she creates ‘beautiful and elegant clothes,’ because her clothes are ‘couture quality,’ because she is herself ‘an international fashion icon,’ and because she is ‘an important woman in fashion.’ Although the board looks at a designer’s entire career, it didn’t hurt that Mrs. Herrera is ‘having a moment’ right now.”

 

ABOUT THE COUTURE COUNCIL LUNCHEON:

The Couture Council luncheon began with cocktails on the David H. Koch Theater terrace, which overlooks the Fashion Week tents. Guests were then ushered into the theater’s promenade for a three-course luncheon. Bronson Van Wyck of Van Wyck & Van Wyck again designed the flowers for this year’s luncheon.

 

Past recipients of the Couture Council Award are Michael Kors (2013), Oscar de la Renta (2012), Valentino (2011), Karl Lagerfeld (2010), Dries Van Noten (2009), Isabel Toledo (2008), Alber Elbaz (2007), and Ralph Rucci (2006). In 2008, Giorgio Armani received a special award for Global Fashion Leadership.

 

ABOUT THE COUTURE COUNCIL OF THE MUSEUM AT FIT:

The Couture Council of The Museum at FIT, created in 2004, is a membership group dedicated to supporting The Museum at FIT, a specialized museum of fashion. The Couture Council helps make it possible for the museum to mount world-class exhibitions of fashion, to acquire important objects for its permanent collection, and to organize public programs, such as the annual fashion symposium. The Couture Council accomplishes these goals through membership dues and by organizing fundraising events such as the annual Couture Council Awards Luncheon, which presents a chosen designer with the Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion.

 

Members of the Couture Council receive invitations to at least five special events a year, including behind-the-scenes tours of the museum’s collection and exhibitions, opening receptions, and visits to the ateliers of fashion designers in New York. Couture Council members are also the first to receive notice of the annual Couture Council Artistry of Fashion Award luncheon.

 

In addition, Couture Council members receive complimentary admittance to all museum educational programs, as well as to the annual fashion symposium, acknowledgments in FIT's annual report, in the exhibition galleries and brochures, and on the FIT website, and exclusive opportunities to meet other patrons of the fashion arts.

 

The Couture Council of The Museum at FIT’s board of directors includes Joele Frank, Laura Lofaro Freeman, Anne Goldrach, Carole Divet Harting, Yaz Hernández (chair), Celia Hegyi, Chiu-Ti Jansen, Eleanora Kennedy, Michèle Gerber Klein, Alexandra Lebenthal (president), Kamie Lightburn, Stephanie Loeffler, Julie Macklowe, Barbara Malone, Elizabeth Musmanno, Liz Peek, Darcy Rigas, Valerie Salembier, Peter G. Scotese, Jean Shafiroff, Nancy Raquet Shaw, Michelle Smith, Jieun Wax, and Sarah G. Wolfe.

 

Couture Council annual membership is $1,000 per individual or couple, or $350 for Young Associates (under the age of 35). Membership is tax deductible to the extent provided by law. Please make checks payable to the FIT Foundation. Mail checks to The Museum at FIT, attention: Couture Council, 227 West 27th Street, Director’s Office, Room E304, New York, NY 10001-5992.

ABOUT THE MUSEUM AT FIT:

The Museum at FIT is the only museum in New York City dedicated solely to the art of fashion. Best known for its innovative and award-winning exhibitions, which have been described in The New York Times as “ravishing,” the museum has a collection of more

than 50,000 garments and accessories dating from the 18th century to the present. Like other fashion museums, such as the Musée de la Mode, the Mode Museum, and the Museo de la Moda, The Museum at FIT collects, conserves, documents, exhibits, and interprets fashion. The museum’s mission is to advance knowledge of fashion through exhibitions, publications, and public programs.

 

CURRENT EXHIBITIONS AT THE MUSEUM AT FIT:

Exposed: A History of Lingerie (Through November 3, 2014) examines intimate apparel from the 18th century to the present, featuring over 70 of the most delicate, luxurious, and beautifully crafted objects from the museum’s permanent collection. Each piece illustrates key developments in fashion, such as changes in silhouette, shifting ideals of propriety, and advancements in technology.

Dance & Fashion (September 13, 2014-January 3, 2015) explores the relationship between two great embodied art forms: dance and fashion. Dance has utilized a wide variety of costume, including contemporary fashions, to identify different characters, but there are also certain iconic styles, which represent a dance more abstractly. Tutus and pointe shoes, for example, are integral to the image and movements of the ballerina, just as leotards and tights are associated with the modern dancer.

Traditionally, dance costumes were created by dancers (such as Martha Graham), artists (such as Léon Bakst), and costume designers (such as Karinska). But in recent years, fashion designers have increasingly been invited to create dance costumes. For example, Yves Saint Laurent and Valentino designed for the ballet and Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons provided costumes for Merce Cunningham. Fashion designers have also been inspired by the dance. Christian Dior loved the tutus of Romantic ballerinas, while the shoe designer Christian Louboutin has transformed pointe shows into fetishistic high heels. The focus of this exhibition, organized by Dr. Valerie Steele, is on ballet and modern dance, but other dance forms, such as tango, flamenco, and stepping are featured.
