FIT to recognize Victor Glemaud, Karlie Kloss
As part of the event, which benefits the FIT Foundation to help nurture the next generation of FIT students, designer Victor Glemaud will be celebrated as the Outstanding Alumni honoree, while supermodel and entrepreneur Karlie Kloss will be recognized as the Fashion Icon honoree.
The event, hosted by supermodel and entrepreneur Ashley Graham, kicks off with the annual Future of Fashion runway show featuring looks created by a select group of 2023 graduates of FIT’s Fashion Design BFA program. The designs span four concentrations: knitwear, sportswear, intimate apparel, and special occasion.
Macy’s will once again support the Future of Fashion through two programs. In particular, one student’s look will be selected to be sold at the iconic Macy’s Herald Square store in New York City in fall 2023 with a hangtag featuring the name, photo, and biography of the recognized student.
Additionally, Macy’s will present three Bold Representation Awards that will recognize Best Use of Sustainable Materials, Best Culturally Inspired Look (inspired by the student's own cultural/ethnic heritage), and Best Gender-Neutral Look.
The designs selected by Macy’s will be featured in the Future of Fashion runway show, in addition to a wide range of designs from the class of 2023 selected by industry professionals who will serve as judges.
Leading up to the runway show, students are mentored by esteemed designers. The mentors will equally name 11 Critic Award winners who will be recognized with distinction during the runway show.
FIT Critic Award Winners will be announced in the coming weeks, along with the Macy’s Capsule Collection Winner and Macy’s Bold Representation Award Winners.
