Fashion Group International (FGI) convened leaders and legends, including Andrew Bolton, Whoopi Goldberg, Martha Stewart, Marc Anthony, Narciso Rodriguez, Dennis Basso and more at the 39th Annual FGI Night of Stars Gala.
Fashion Group International (FGI) Night of Stars ticketed gala is the non-profit organization’s most important annual fundraiser as it helps raise vital funds for essential programming — including mentorship, education and professional development — and helps fund business grants, scholarships and critical industry resources that support FGI’s global network of emerging and established professionals in fashion, beauty, retail and related industries.
The event took place on Tuesday, October 17, and was hosted at The Plaza in New York City, which undoubtedly set the tone of the chic atmosphere — an iconic landmark befitting one of the fashion world’s most storied fashion organizations and historic, star-studded events.
Maryanne Grisz, FGI president and CEO: “FGI Night of Stars is a celebration of extraordinary individuals in entertainment, fashion, beauty and culture. We are grateful to all who, by attending our most important fundraiser of the year, support Fashion Group International’s mission to connect, provide resources, mentor emerging talent and celebrate the fashion industry at every level.”
