HE fragrance industry celebrated the sixteenth annual Art of Packaging awards, raising a record $350,000 for the Marc Rosen Scholarship at Pratt Institute.

Joan Collins stepped in as emcee at the last minute when Liza Minnelli got the flu. Pratt president Dr. Thomas Schutte, Luxe Pack president Pierre-Yves Maisonneuve, and Marc Rosen, the extraordinary perfume bottle designer who teaches his art at a Pratt master class, were the hosts.

This year’s honoree, Neil Fiske, CEO of Bath and Body Works and author of Trading Up, was introduced by his executive vice president Camille McDonald. The scholarship winners represented the international component of Rosen’s graduate course: Ki Man Bae, Amie I. Lin, Annah Syta and Se Ra Yoon.

Among the guests were Joan’s husband Percy Gibson, and son Sacha Newley with his wife Angela; Arlene Dahl with her gorgeous children Christopher Barker and Carol McCarthy; last year’s winner Andrea Robinson, CMO of Estee Lauder.
