RUCCI TO BE HONORED: Ralph Rucci will be the man of the hour May 19 when he is honored by the Savannah College of Art and Design with its André Leon Talley lifetime achievement award at its annual fashion show. Rucci follows in the footsteps of Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta, Karl Lagerfeld, Tom Ford, John Galliano and, most recently, Manolo Blahnik. Rucci, whose work has been showcased at three solo museum shows, will also have an exhibition in the gallery named for Talley, a member of the school’s board of trustees, at SCAD. The designer is personally selecting items from his Chado Ralph Rucci line for the show.
