PHILLY’S PREPPY TURN: Tommy Hilfiger will be drumming up excitement in the City of Brotherly Love come April. He’ll be awarded the 2011 Spirit of Design Award at the Philadelphia University Fashion Show on April 30 at the Academy of Music. Past recipients have included Francisco Costa, Mary McFadden, William Calvert and Jay McCarroll. The fashion show, which is part of the university’s gala, “Evening of Innovation,” is an annual event that showcases fashion students’ designs before a crowd of about 2,200 people. “I think it’s incredibly important to give back and to support new designers interested in the fashion industry,” said Hilfiger.
