Mayor Edna B. Jackson was honored this morning with the inaugural Savannah Fashion Advocate Award by the organizers of Savannah Fashion Week 2014 for her “ardent support of Savannah’s fashion design and retail community.”

“Broughton Street is the fashion center of Savannah, and to everyone involved in the fashion industry – thank you for all that you do for this city,” Mayor Jackson said. “You make Savannah look good.”
