We are thrilled to reveal the official Mayoral Proclamation of Elie Tahari Day from Mayor Michael Bloomberg!
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.

We can’t wait to celebrate Elie Tahari Day tomorrow, partially because of this amazing cake, designed by Haute So Sweet!
