Michele Savoia, a local New Jersey resident and mens fashion designer was last seen Thursday night leaving Paris Hilton's party at the Marquee nightclub in Manhattan. He was supposed to be meeting his ex-girlfriend Valentine's Day evening and never showed up. Saturday morning he was reported missing by his driver.
The self proclaimed "bad boy of fashion" was famous for his suits and other classic menswear designs, vintage inspired fashion and trends were his specialty and he has been quoted saying "Why change the wheel, that's not who I am." Some celebrity clients of his include Robert DeNiro, Matt Dillon and Mickey Rourke. He is also the owner of the store 'House of Savoia' located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
The 55 year old Hoboken born, Italian designer's body was found floating in the frigged Hudson River waters on Sunday February 16. An autopsy will determine the cause of death, however; police believe he was going to his boat which is docked on West 17th street and slipped and fell into the water.
