In a surprise move, the City of San Francisco becomes one of the first
major US cities to not only recognize a fashion designer for their
contribution to the world, but to give them their own holiday.
The Mayor of San Francisco, Edwin M. Lee, honored the dynamic fashion
duo Max and Lubov Azria by presenting them with an official declaration
stating that May 8th was to to be known as “Max and Lubov Azria Day”
in the city by the bay. This declaration was in honor of the
contributions the creative pair had not only for the City, but for the
global fashion world as well.
In addition to this declaration by the Mayor of San Francisco, the
President of the Academy of Art University, Dr. Elisa Stephens,
presented fashion designers Max and Lubov Azria of BCBGMAXAZRIA with
honorary doctorate degrees later in May.
