Versace partnered with the Clooney Foundation for Justice to host the second annual Albie Awards in New York City. The gala—founded by George and Amal Clooney and named after Justice Albie Sachs, who worked to end apartheid in South Africa—honored those individuals who, with their work, have courageously defended justice above all else.
“We firmly believe that it takes a community of allies to succeed in waging justice to protect human rights,” the Clooneys said. “Versace’s commitment to equality, including its active support for LGBTQ+ rights, inspires us to keep fighting the good fight.”
Following the Versace Foundation’s multi-year partnership with the Clooney Foundation for Justice, The Albies sees prominent figures from the worlds of human rights,
business, entertainment, fashion, and technology come together to show their support to this years honorees,
individuals who work towards seeking justice at all costs.
