NEW YORK -The Fashion Institute of Technology honored Dillard's vice president Williams Dilliard III and The Estée Lauder Companies executive chairman William Lauder during its annual benefit gala her last month.
     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.
