Simon Collins, the Dean of Fashion at Parsons School of Design dissed Tommy Hilfiger, pretty much to his face, the other night at a screening of new fashion documentary Dressed. "There are some who want to make beautiful dresses and there's some who want to be the next Tommy Hilfiger," Collins said. According to Page Six: "Audience members all turned to Hilfiger, whose eyes 'lit up in surprise.'" That's mean. Hilfiger is one of the most successful fashion moguls of the last few decades. Guess Parsons won't be seeing any support from him and his $3 billion anytime soon. [NYP]
