Savannah Fashion Week to Honor Chris Benz

The designer will be given its first Savannah Fashion Visionary Award.

BENZ JUST PEACHY: Savannah Fashion Week organizers will honor Chris Benz with its first Savannah Fashion Visionary Award for his “love of Savannah and support of the local fashion community.” Having spent a great deal of time in the Georgia city, the designer has taken inspiration from it to the degree he named his fall 2011 collection “Spooky Savannah.”

Heather Burge, president of Savannah Fashion Week, said, “Chris’ affection and respect for Savannah is apparent. He caught the essence of Savannah with his collection — its inherent romance and its sly sense of eccentricity. He’s the perfect choice for this inaugural award.”

Benz recently introduced a capsule collection for London Fog. He is still working with eBay and consulting on the Japanese brand Synchro Crossing.
