Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) launched its annual SCAD Style with the Etoile Awards gala featuring a host of fashion celebrities.

The event aimed to honor some of the brightest stars of the fashion and design industry. Among the honorees were award-winning Broadway costume designer William Ivey Long, Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion editor Robin Givhan and New York City planning director Amanda Burden.

During the gala, hip hop mogul and designer Russell Simmons was also recognized, and he expressed his gratitude by stressing the value of schools like SCAD who are committed to the future of style and design in a world in which artistic expression is often undervalued.

SCAD president Paula S. Wallace, who presented each of the honorees with the distinguished award, remarked that they were as multifaceted as the school''s students.

She also added, "They are all living proof that you draw inspiration from all around, and bring everything together to create something completely fresh."

SCAD is one many colleges across America offering degrees in various aspects of visual and creative arts. Now may be a good time for interested individuals to earn a new degree or enhance or update their existing skills.
