Designer Carolina Herrera receives an honorary diploma during the afternoon ceremony at FIT's Commencement 2012. She is introduced by FIT President Joyce F. Brown.
Carolina Herrera, the fashion designer known for her elegance, exquisite taste and sensibility, developed her internationally acclaimed line as a second chapter in her life. At the age of 40—already a fixture on the International Best-Dressed list—she opened her first design atelier and showroom on Seventh Avenue. Today, her global label is consistently one of the most prosperous in the industry and includes bridal wear, fragrances, menswear, handbags and shoes. Mrs. Herrera has volunteered her time at FIT, serving as mentor and critic for fashion design majors and serves as a goodwill ambassador for the fashion industry's international campaign against malnutrition.
