NEW SUPERSTAR: The Fashion Group International is crowning Nicolas Ghesquière its newest Superstar. The Balenciaga designer will be this year’s recipient of the Superstar Award at FGI’s Night of Stars on Oct. 28 at Cipriani 55 Wall Street. This year’s theme will be “The Globalists,” and Ghesquière will be one of several yet-to-be-disclosed honorees at the 27th annual gala.
“Nicolas Ghesquière defines the word ‘superstar,’” said FGI president Margaret Hayes. “Said to be one of the most intriguing and original designers of his generation, he has reinvented the House of Balenciaga and endowed its legacy with a cool, modern edge.” As in previous years, Simon Doonan will host and Ruben Toledo will create the artwork for the awards. Lord & Taylor is the event’s lead sponsor, with other participating sponsors Arcade Marketing, Bebe, Givaudan and InStyle.
