Vera Wang, Olivier Rousteing, Anna Sui, Maye Musk, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon Celebrated at FGI’s ‘Night of Stars’

Instead of the regular red-carpet rigamarole of an awards gala, where celebrities rule the crowd, Thursday’s “Night of Stars” magnified the winners, and their respective convictions.
Pretty much all of the honorees had something non-fashion to say. There were mentions of getting out the vote, immigration, politics, civil discussion, sustainability, inclusivity, longevity, technology and cause-related marketing. All in all, there was a lot to consider. But as emcee Simon Doonan reminded guests at the Fashion Group International, isn’t that the point?
Recalling how he once sought “a calming explanation” about fashion today from the late Bill Cunningham, Doonan said he was told, “‘Oh, young fella,’” sounding like Jimmy Stewart playing Bill Cunningham because he did kind of sound like Jimmy Stewart, “‘Fashion is a reflection of the culture and the culture is chaotic. As always fashion, is just doing its job.’”
There was also plenty of thanks to go around with many honorees thanking fellow designers by name. Vera Wang, the Superstar winner, who doubled up with Calvin Klein and Donna Karan as her co-presenters, spent more time praising them, Fashion Star winners Anna Sui and Olivier Rousteing (calling for a round of applause with each) than she did speaking about herself.
