FEELS LIKE A LIFETIME: Francisco Costa will take a quick break from working on the pre-spring Calvin Klein Collection to accept the 2013 André Leon Talley Lifetime Achievement Award from the Savannah College of Art and Design. The Brazilian-born creative director will be honored May 18 at the university’s annual fashion show in Savannah by SCAD president and cofounder Paula Wallace and Vogue contributing editor and SCAD trustee André Leon Talley.

“To be recognized for my work by SCAD, which does so much to cultivate new design talent and connecting the fashion industry with Savannah, makes this acknowledgement especially meaningful to me,” Costa said.
