Oscar de la Renta

The Fashion Group International has just revealed that Oscar de la Renta will be the recipient of the esteemed Superstar Award at the organization's 26th annual Night of Stars. President of the FGI, Margaret Hayes, seemed thrilled with the choice, saying “Oscar personifies the word ‘superstar.’” The awards ceremony and gala will take place on October 22nd, at Cipriani 55 Wall Street in New York. Each year the organization chooses a theme and this year's will be titled, "The Storytellers," a group that de la Renta fits seamlessly into. Barneys New
York creative director Simon Doonan will
emcee the gala like in previous years. Lord & Taylor will be the night’s lead sponsor,
with participating sponsors including Bebe, Arcade Marketing, Cotton
Inc., Givaudan, The Taubman Co. and InStyle magazine.
But the only name on everyone's lips that night will be Oscar. “While this award honors his lifetime achievements, it is
also in recognition of the vitality and creativity clearly apparent in
his current collections,” Hayes said. “Oscar is truly a most
accomplished and inspirational figure in our industry.”
