Night of Stars 2018

All that glitters is gold at the Night of Stars.

The ELYSIAN team had the honor of attending yesterday evening’s Night of the Stars 2018, presented by The Fashion Group International at Cipriani’s on Wall Street. Hosted by Simon Doonan, the dinner and awards banquet seeks to honor some of the influential protagonists in the fashion industry.

The Fashion Group International is a global nonprofit organization that has been dedicated to benefiting and uplifting the fashion industry since 1930. With more than 5,000 members and chapters all over the world, the FGI is the pre-eminent authority on the biz and works to advance professionalism and career opportunities for its members.

This year, the FGI honored some of our favorite names: legendary bridal designer Vera Wang; Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing; print-loving global icon Anna Sui; Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, the creative team behind Opening Ceremony and Kenzo; luxury lifestyle giant Moncler; legendary septuagenarian model Maye Musk; philanthropists Barbara Bradley Baekgard; Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch, the architecture team that started Roman and Williams; New York Times chief fashion critic Vanessa Friedman; Deirdre Quinn, founder and CEO of Lafayette 148; and perfumer Frédéric Mall.
