The designer will be honored at the annual New York City luncheon with an award presented by co-chairs Jeffrey Fowler and Émilie Rubinfeld, as well as Nordstrom, that will take place on September 22nd at Cipriani South Street. 

The award comes as the brand celebrates its 40th anniversary with a campaign led by Gordon in New York City and the return of New York Fashion Week this September.

“I am honored to be recognized with this year’s Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion. This recognition, combined with the reemergence of New York Fashion Week and Carolina Herrera’s ongoing 40th anniversary celebration, is going to make this fall one to never forget,” said Gordon.

Gordon began his time at Carolina Herrera in 2017 as a consultant and was then hand-selected by Herrera to succeed her as creative director a year later. He has since been credited for reinvigorating the timeless brand with his designs that combine vibrant colors, alongside playful and youthful sensibilities. 

“His achievements in fashion are outstanding and he is a wonderful role model for emerging designers, including our own students. We look forward to celebrating his accomplishments and being part of New York City’s fashion reawakening at the Couture Council luncheon next month,” added FIT President Dr. Joyce F. Brown. 

The Museum at FIT is equally gearing up to reopen to visitors on August 6 with a major exhibition, 'Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion'.
