Haut Couture and famous people often go hand in hand, but at the Fashion Group International''s Night of Stars several celebrities paid tribute to the fashion designers who make them seem so chic.
The theme of the event, which took place at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City this past weekend, was Storytellers which gave many presenters license to ruminate about the storied histories behind much of their work.
The event attracted high-end designers such as Oscar De La Renta, Vera Wand and Kenneth Cole and a compendium of celebrities including James Franco, Evan Rachel Wood, Mary J. Blige and Gwen Stefani.
Among the 11 awards presented at the event, The Savannah College of Art and Design was honored with the Sustainability award for its work in urban renewal, adaptive building and conservation.
"We at SCAD believe there''s really no difference between sustainable design and good design. It''s the same thing," claims School President Paula Wallace in her acceptance speech. "And it starts with young artists and designers who are learning that responsible design isn''t only about renewable materials. It''s about renewing ourselves."
