FASHION CHAMPS: Elie Tahari’s recent Emmy bag, which he created with Emmy Rossum, benefited Safe Horizon and, on Wednesday, it was time for the organization to return the honor. It recognized the designer’s efforts by bestowing him with a Champion Award at its 16th annual Champion Awards at Cipriani Wall Street. Rossum couldn’t be there to present Tahari with his award — a Tahari-clad New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn did the honors instead, and the designer, whose left arm was in a sling after a recent biking accident in Sagaponeck, N.Y., was visibly touched by it. “I have a broken arm, not a broken heart,” he said. “Right now it is filled with love for Safe Horizon.” Stephanie March from TV’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” hosted the night, which also honored Phillips-Van Heusen’s Pamela Hootkin and Kasirer Consulting’s Sun Kasirer with Champion Awards.
