The event raised just under $2 million to benefit FIT's Educational Development Fund, which provides scholarship, technology, and student services support, among other priorities.
In a new feature this year, 28 FIT packaging design majors competed to design a new package for Lauder's fragrance called pleasures. A team of judges from Estée Lauder and Dillard's selected Nina Juang as the winner. She received $5,000 in cash. Rob Stevens and Alica Tagliasacchi were named runners-up and each received $1,500 in cash.
