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.”
We are very excited to announce that September 4 is officially Elie Tahari Day!
Read more about this very special honor in Women’s Wear Daily.
Elie Tahari will be a special guest on Fashion Police with Joan Rivers tonight.
Tune in to E! at 10 p.m. EST to catch the fun.
"What an unforgettable night. Thanks to all of our friends and family who came and followed along online. We’ll see you soon." -Elie
The Fashion Police have raided the presentation! Joan Rivers is interviewing Elie for her show.
