It's a great night to be a Pratt grad!
Design icon Diane von Furstenberg hit Pratt Institute's 2011 Fashion Show honoring top designs by 18 graduating seniors Wednesday night at the Metropolitan Pavilion, and bestowed the prestigious Pratt Fashion Icon award upon Vogue's European Editor at Large Hamish Bowles.
"There's so much to say about Hamish. Hamish is a true Renaissance man. He is always ready for anything. And because he will do anything, Anna [Wintour] asked him to do everything. She has sent him to boot camp, to outdoor survival camp, to play basketball with Amar'e [Stoudemire] from New York Knicks... I hope it doesn't shock you but I always tell Hamish that to me, he's a closet butch."LOL!
"I hope Hamish that one day you will dare to be a designer," DvF added.
Also in the house to watch the ceremony: Anna Wintour, Thomas F. Schutte, The Misshapes, and Daphne Guinness.
Talk about a graduation ceremony!
