On May 5, the 2016 Pratt Institute Fashion Show + Cocktail Benefit will spotlight inventive student designs from graduating seniors in its 117th runway show. At this year’s event, Pratt Institute will honor Harold Koda, former curator in charge of The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, with the Pratt Fashion Award for Lifetime Achievement. The fashion show, titled Amazin’, and the cocktail benefit that follows will be held at Spring Studios in the heart of Tribeca in Manhattan. Proceeds from the event will benefit scholarship funds and the Department of Fashion.
Pratt will recognize Koda for his outstanding fashion curatorship and scholarship, which have helped elevate fashion as an art form. Koda will be presented with the award during the show.
