"My collection is inspired by the women in my life who have influenced me, through the exploration of my own habitus and connection to the city of New Orleans. This collection reflects the physical embodiment of our own cultural capital, and provides an answer as to why we are who we are based on personal history and family values." -Rachel Lee

"My collection is a social commentary and desire for the two ends of the American political spectrum to interact to seek progress. In short, the clothes are a "play on American prep wear" which is rooted in the conservative Ivy League environments of the 1950s and earlier." -Ryu Tomita

"This collection is a celebration of my surroundings. I worked with inherited, found, and sourced materials, getting to know their nature in order to understand how they'll best function. As I accepted the unique character of each piece, led by intuition and uninhibited by expectation, everything became fluid. When you treat something like it belongs, it does." -Emily Ridings

New York, NY, May 3, 2018– PRATT INSTITUTE’s Fashion Division held its annual senior runway presentation on May 3rd at Spring Studios. The event honored fashion designer Gabriela Hearst, the Uruguay-born, New York based womenswear designer, with the Pratt Fashion Visionary Award at its annual runway show Pratt Show.

Editor in Chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Glenda Bailey presented the award to Hearst. PRATT recognized Hearst for her dedication to producing sustainable, high-quality collections without conceding her ethics and values, taking into account where materials come from, who is producing them, and how her designs can act as a vehicle for greater good.

“We’re thrilled to honor Gabriela Hearst with the Pratt Fashion
Visionary Award at this year’s fashion show,” said Jennifer Minniti, chair
of Pratt’s Fashion Department. “Fashion has the power to make a
difference and Ms. Hearst is a great example of that. Her
commitment to sustainability, quality, and social activism through
her brand is inspiring and serves as a powerful message for our
students as they begin their careers.”

“My team and I are so honored to receive an award from one of the
greatest fashion institutions in the world. It is humbling that our
commitment to design, quality, and sustainability has been
recognized. It motivates us to continue creating luxury fashion at
the highest standard,” said Hearst.

The 119th annual show, titled Diversiform, spotlighted the exceptional work from Pratt Fashion’s graduating seniors at Spring Studios in Manhattan. The Runway show showcased the next names in progressive and experimental fashion to an audience of over 600 guests.

The event also presented designer Rachel Lee with a showing at Graduate Fashion Week in London, which will take place beginning Sunday, June 3rd. Designer Emily Ridings received the institution’s ON POINT award worth $10,000.

Every year, the Pratt Fashion Show spotlights inventive collections from a select group of graduating seniors chosen by a panel of industry experts. This year it featured Fern Mallis, designers Victoria Bartlett, Mona Kowalska of A Detacher, actor, model and journalist Hailey Benton Gates, Creative Director and designer Emma Fletcher of LYELL, Creative Director/ stylist and collaborator Madeline Weeks, author and VOGUE Senior Editor Laird Borrelli-Persson, President of AEFFE USA Michelle Stein, and Tom Kalenderian SVP and GMM of Barneys New York to name a few.

Each student presented a runway collection composed of eight to 15 complete looks, including accessories. The designers who presented their collections were Rachel Lee, Quian Wu, Jiayue Ge, Jessica Stahl, KJ Choi, Anderson Osmun, Samantha Debardeleben, Ryu Tomita Talia
Leslie, Victoria Tom, Liv Ryan, Hannah Li, Shelby Grochowski, Ying
Yang, Hajin Kim, Haley Switlekowski, Perri Vaaler, Amy Sullivan, Jeremy Wood, and Emily Ridings.

The rigorous program of PRATT’s fashion division is trans-disciplinary in nature, closely allied with illustration, photography, film, performance, visual studies, and material culture. Located on Pratt’s Brooklyn campus, students are placed at the flashpoint of one of the world’s cultural epicenters.

 

ABOUT PRATT FASHION: The PRATT’s Fashion Division is the first school of fashion design in the country.. Rooted in history, the division cultivates progressive design and talent in the fashion and design industries. The city of New York as its urban laboratory, offering students a wealth of opportunities to gain crucial experience beyond the classroom environment. Museums, archives, and design studios familiarize students with design processes and histories;
internships at top design companies such as Zero Maria Cornejo, Rag & Bone, Ralph Lauren, and Donna Karan offer hands-on experience and professional networking. All Pratt fashion students participate in annual design competitions sponsored by the CFDA and YMA FSF; competitions sponsored by companies such as Cotton Incorporated and Supima Cotton are integrated into the curriculum, providing avenues for scholarship support and exposure within the fashion community. Public critiques with faculty, peers, and outside design
authorities help students crystallize and articulate their design visions. A mandate to show work publicly—in gallery environments, on the street, in showrooms—instills appreciation for the true spectacle of fashion.

The Fashion faculty is comprised of professional practitioners from across the industry, including directors at top design houses, historians, curators, and craftspeople. Some have worked for Donna Karan, Giorgio di Sant’ Angelo, Nike, Liz Claiborne, Foley & Corinna, Ralph Lauren, and Geoffrey Beene; some have built their own companies such as Study-NY, to promote modern sustainable fashion, millinery, and more. Their work has been featured in a wide
range of publications including the New York Times, Essence magazine, The Fader, and The New Yorker. Seen on stage and screen at the Metropolitan Opera, on Broadway, and on Bravo TV, faculty work has also sold in Barney’s New York, Henri Bendel, Saks Fifth Avenue, and countless independent retailers.

Guest practitioners from all fashion backgrounds join faculty in the classroom as visiting lecturers, advisors, and critics. Each semester, a full roster of fashion experts is invited to talk theory and practice with Pratt students.
