I am very proud to say that FIT was represented at the inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris by three alumni, all from the class of 2008. You may already know about Daniel Roseberry ’08, the Schiaparelli designer whose extravagant gown was worn by Lady Gaga.
But also on the platform, there were two little girls wearing adorable faux fur coats.
The girls were Vice President Harris’ great nieces and the coats were designed and made by Sydney Hawes ’08, whose company’s sourcing director and former FIT roommate, Susan Trottiner’08, sketched the coats.
We have that story for you here from the School of Art and Design blog.
