Elie Tahari has come a long way since coming to this country with only $100 in his pocket. His first fashion job was out of Newark selling hats and gloves on the street and decades later he’s built a dynasty. It’s an inspiring story; one that continues today with yet another milestone in the designers career. Today, is Elie Tahari’s 40th Anniversary and with that he’s earned the accolade of a holiday. Going forward September 4th is now Elie Tahari Day! It doesn’t get more official then an opening speech by Joan Rivers and a signed proclamation by Mayor Bloomberg.
