Congratulations to all of the graduates of Pratt Institute Fashion, Class of 2014! Last night was a celebrated evening for all of the talented designers, seasoned and new.

First, Stephen Burrows received the Lifetime Achievement award from longtime friend, legendary model Pat Cleveland.  My favorite, Byron Lars received the Fashion Visionary Award from modern style icon, actress Angela Bassett.  Also notable are the fact that both winners are the first African American designers to be honored for the Pratt Fashion awards.

Fellow fashion VIPs were on hand to support the new class and award winners like Catherine Malandrino, Fern Mallis and Stan Herman.

I am going to post more graduate collections from Pratt in the next few days, but first, here is Julia Wollner.  She was the winner of the Liz Claiborne Award for her achievement in concept to product.  Her collection had a clean, high-tech aesthetic.  The group looked to contain white fabric basics paired with digitally printed art on vinyl.
