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.”
