Don’t miss Mr. Tahari’s cameo in this exclusive, behind the scenes video from our Spring ‘14 presentation.
Today, we’re throwing it back to October 2011, when Jennifer Hudson and Elie hosted a Saks Fifth Avenue Key for the Cure dinner.
It was a magical night at our Spring 2014 presentation, with a collection inspired by the architecture of Brasilia.
First, we transformed our 510 Fifth Avenue pop-up shop into the venue for our presentation…
Then, Bobbi Brown, Dov Salon and Pattie Yankee showed up for makeup, hair and nails!
The models took then joined Elie in the showroom to start the fun!
Fashionable friends Alexis Stoudemire & Phillip Bloch came by, as well as iconic musician Eve!
Elie posed with our contest winner, the lovely Janie Collins, as well as Neiman Marcus’ Ken Downing and Harper’s Bazaar's Glenda Bailey.
"What a night! Thanks to everyone who made our Spring 2014 presentation such a success." -Elie
It was a great morning at Elie Tahari Day!
We kicked things off with an unforgettable performance by the Fort Hamilton High School marching band.
Neiman Marcus’ Ken Downing was in attendance, as well as Elie Tahari, his kids, Bergdorfs’ Linda Fargo and the one and only Joan Rivers!
"Elie Tahari is the true American dream," Rivers said, in her speech.
"I hope to be here for your 80th anniversary."
NYC official Robert Goldrich read the mayoral proclamation congratulating Elie on his special day, to which Elie humbly replied:
"When I grow up, I want to be just like Joan Rivers.
She knows that to be happy, you have to make other people happy.”
There’s no one more excited to celebrate our 40th anniversary than Elie himself.
Read his special letter here.
— Elie Tahari
