It is so wonderful to know that Professor Cutting is still teaching at FIT. He has always encouraged my desire and interest in Fashion. Meeting and knowing him has been a great blessing! I have not seen him in awhile, but I have always enjoyed and appreciated all the talks we have had about fashion and life! Don’t worry Professor Cutting, I have not forgotten my dream to create my own fashions nor your impromptu lessons on drawing you gave me, free of charge and out of the goodness of your heart . I will see you at FIT one day and hopefully before you retire LOL.
