FGI to honour Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy

By Tamsin Crimmens

If there’s one thing we know about Marc Jacobs’ and Robert Duffy’s relationship, it’s that they’re a mighty powerful couple when it’s time to get down to business.

To which end Fashion Group International (FGI) will be honouring the designer and president of his own-name label with the prized Superstar award at its annual Night Of Stars gala on 22 October in New York. The duo notch up 30 years of working together in August.

Says FGI's CEO Margaret Hayes, 'The enduring collaboration of Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy is the foundation for one of the most influential and successful brands on the planet. This extraordinary body of work and a partnership that changed the course of fashion design.'

Aptly, this is the first time in 30 years that FGI have honoured a partnership with its top award.

Congratulations to both Jacobs and Duffy: very well deserved.
