FGI to Honor Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy at Gala

The business partners will receive the Superstar award at Fashion Group International’s annual Night of Stars on Oct. 22.

PRIZED PARTNERS: Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy, who have been business partners for more years than both probably care to remember, will receive the Superstar award at Fashion Group International’s annual Night of Stars on Oct. 22. It’s the first time in the awards’ 30-year history that the group honors a partnership with the top award.

“The enduring collaboration of Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy is the foundation for one of the most influential and successful brands on the planet,” said FGI president and chief executive officer Margaret Hayes, who added that with the top honor, the organization recognizes “this extraordinary body of work and a partnership that changed the course of fashion design.”

The gala event will again take place at Cipriani Wall Street in New York, with Lord & Taylor as the lead sponsor alongside sponsors Arcade Marketing, Givaudan, InStyle, LIM College and Movado.
