Roberto Cavalli - Roberto Cavalli To Be Honoured At Amfar

Roberto Cavalli will be among the honourees at the forthcoming amfAR New York Gala.

The Italian fashion designer, Chopard co-president Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele and Goldman Sachs partner R. Martin Chavez will pick up Awards of Courage in recognition for the work in the fight against AIDS at the black-tie dinner on February 8.

Kenneth Cole, chairman of AIDS charity amfAR, said: "We believe that a cure for AIDS is possible in the foreseeable future. Thanks to the leadership of the fashion community, and all of amfAR's friends and honourees in New York and around the world, we are getting closer to our ultimate goal of a world without AIDS."

This year's gala, which is sponsored by Hublot and MAC Cosmetics, will be hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker and takes place at the Cipriani Wall Street.

Roberto has previously claimed he thinks his work can change people's lives.

He has said: "If you do something different, something special and something sexy; because every woman loves to be sexy - and I want to help a woman to be sexy. Sometimes women are afraid to be sexy and women should know that sometimes a dress can change her life."
