Steven has had a truly unmatched impact on the world of design history, culture, criticism and education. As a faculty member in his MFA Design program at SVA, Deborah was thrilled to be a part of this esteemed event in which his achievements have been recognized. Deborah also added, "I was honored to be seated next to Tim Gunn who sat next to Michelle Obama last year. We also had Eugene Yarbrough at our table, a seventeen year old fashion designer with stars in his eyes. It's so inspiring to recognize the best design minds and their accomplishments while also using the platform to inspire some of the most promising young minds to push themselves further and harder."
