Diesel’s Renzo Rosso will take home the event’s corporate leadership award, while Kenneth Cole will be given the organization’s Humanitarian Award. The Lord & Taylor Fashion Oracle Award, meanwhile, will go to Bravo, with Frances Berwick and Andy Cohen accepting it on behalf of the network. “This year, we are celebrating a wide range of unique and accomplished talents who have created fascinating narratives for their brand,” Margaret Hayes, president of The Fashion Group International, said. “All the honorees have captured the imagination of their customers and given them compelling reasons to remain faithful to them.”
As reported, the Oct. 22 event will be themed “The Storytellers,” and Oscar de la Renta is being given the night’s Superstar Award.
