In recognition of his leadership in the retail industry, Steve Sadove, chairman and chief executive officer of Saks Fifth Avenue, was honored by FIT and The Educational Foundation for the Fashion Industries at the college's annual benefit gala, "One Person, One Company, One College Make A Difference," in March 2009, at Cipriani 42nd Street. The gala benefitted FIT's Educational Development Fund, which assists the college with scholarships, technology, and student services, among other priorities.

"Steve Sadove has long been a great advocate of education and a valued friend of FIT," said Dr. Joyce F. Brown, president of FIT. "We are fortunate to have an industry leader such as Steve recognize that FIT's students are tomorrow's industry talent and that it is, therefore, prudent and wise to ensure that they receive a top-notch education in order to infuse the fashion business with ongoing intelligence, energy, and inspiration. We are immensely appreciative of his support and proud to honor him."

As a special feature of this year's gala, 20 FIT students majoring in Accessories Design were invited to demonstrate their creativity and talent to interpret black pumps, donated by Saks, as New York landmarks such as the Empire State Building or the Brooklyn Bridge, using CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements. The shoes were on display throughout the evening, during which guests had the opportunity to vote on their favorite creation.
