"Smooth and pretty. Big smile." That was the instruction given to the six foot, stiletto wearing glamazons bidding for a chance to grace the coveted Jeffrey Fashion Cares runway. Clearly, Jeffrey Kalinsky has a vision. The well-orchestrated casting had models from Atlanta's top agencies give their best walk for Jeffrey Atlanta GM Don Purcell, Jeffrey NY's Philip Manghisi, Catwalk Production's Randi Layne and Jeffrey Fashion Cares Chair Lila Hertz - no pressure!
Photographer Tomas Espinoza captured the excitement and energy with a collection of creative images (so make sure and look through the slideshow).
When I was a young artist in graduate school, I chose art galleries based on whether I could visualize my work on their walls... [For me] it was easy to spot a Jeffrey's Girl based on who could pull off Saint Laurent, Givenchy or Lanvin.
Jeffrey Fashion Cares is the closest Atlanta gets to feeling like NYFW. If you've attended JFC then you know exactly what I mean, but if you haven't, get your tickets and be a part of something truly remarkable. Cocktails, after-parties and the best of Fall 2015 runway fashion all while supporting the Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta and the Atlanta AIDS Fund.
Jeffrey Fashion Cares offers the most exciting and philanthropic evening of the season.
