Michele Savoia’s body discovered off Chelsea Piers
NEW YORK — New York police have identified the body of a man found floating on the Manhattan side of the Hudson River as that of a fashion designer who was reported missing last week.
Police say 55-year-old Michele Savoia’s body was discovered off Chelsea Piers on Sunday afternoon not far from where he lived aboard his boat. The cause of death has not yet been determined.
It wasn’t clear how Savoia ended up in the river, but police do not suspect foul play. He was last seen alive leaving a nearby nightclub early Thursday morning.
Media reports say Savoia designed hand-crafted suits for celebrities and had a boutique on the Lower East Side.
Savoia reportedly dressed Robert DeNiro, Matt Dillon and other notables. According to Savoia’s Facebook page, he was from Hoboken, New Jersey, and attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in the 1970s.
Savoia was described as a “tattooed, needle-wielding daredevil” in an article by Fashion Week Daily in 2011.
