I heart Elie Tahari for his beautiful clothes, his message of hope, and for never giving up on his dreams. The rags to riches fairy tale that is designer Elie Tahari’s life story has been told and told again, but it remains an inspiring example of what our industry—and our country—is all about. He slept on benches in Central Park & now lives in a luxury high-rise overlooking that same bench.
His story is proof that determination and hard work can (occasionally) lead to a $500 million fashion empire. I spent 30 glorious minutes with him last year and that was a time I will never forget.
Tomorrow night the Bradie James 56 foundation will be hosting an event at the Elie Tahari store in NorthPark Center. You don’t want to miss this fabulous event with music, fashion and fun. A portion of the proceeds from the sales will go to the foundation.. RSVP is a must 6 p.m to 8 p.m firstname.lastname@example.org
