The annual Pratt Institute Art of Packaging Award Gala will this year honor the Batallure brand and its founders for their commitment to beauty packaging design.

The event is firmly on the annual calendar for industry movers and shakers because it serves to recognize the hard work carried out by the Pratt Institute and its educational program for packaging designers.

Organized by Marc Rosen, who is on the teaching staff at the institute and is a world-renowned packaging designer, the gala takes place May 16th​ in New York City, with proceeds from ticket sales going towards the Scholarship and Education Fund for Packaging By Design.

The gala enters its 28th year

The event is now in its 28th​ year and in 2015 funds raised helped fund two full tuition scholarships for packaging designers, and to date it has helped raise more than $3.5m in funds, funding scholarships for more than 100 Pratt students.

Over the years, Batallure Beauty founders Robin Burns-McNeill and Sam Ghusson have developed a business that focuses on creating brand strategy, product and, packaging development, as well as the sourcing and manufacturing of exemplary beauty brands.

Each year the gala organizers choose to celebrate the work of an individual, company or institute that has worked relentlessly to raise the bar on packaging excellence, and for 2017 it is the Batallure team that has been chosen for that honor.

Batallure joins a long list of honorees

Batallure Beauty joins previous recipients including Aramis & Designer Fragrances, Estée Lauder, Avon, Bath & Body Works, Calvin Klein, Clinique, Coty, Coty Prestige, Dior Beauty, Interparfums, Lancôme, MAC, Mary Kay, P&G Prestige, Procter & Gamble, Ralph Lauren Fragrances, and Shiseido. 

The event will take place at the prestigious University Club of New York, in Midtown, Manhattan, with the proceedings starting with a cocktail recpetion at 6:30pm, followed by dinner at 8pm.
