Parsons The New School of Design honored Famous alumni Shelia C. Johnson and legendary fashion designer Donna Karan at a celebration held in NYC Tuesday evening.
Parsons' executive dean Joel Towers explained:
“[they are both] women who have risen to the top of their chosen fields and have shaped contemporary culture.”
Donna never technically graduated from Parsons - she failed drapery class - but that minor detail has not deterred Parsons from giving honor where honor is due.
Congrats to you both!
