February 18 , 2014
Fashion designer Michele Savoia's friend said the designer accidentally fell into the Hudson River Thursday and his body has been recently discovered at the site.
Reports suggest that Savoia had been partying prior to climbing the ramp to his boat and divers found his body close to the boat at the Chelsea Piers. Police doesn't suspect foul play but an investigation is ongoing.
"You never knew what he was going to do," friend James Dalton said. The 55-year-old was well known to others in the clothing world.
