Atlanta’s Most Fashionable Fête Moves to Phipps Plaza for an Unforgettable Evening Featuring a Cocktail Reception, Fashion Show, Silent and Live Auctions, and More...
Over the past 22 years, Jeffrey Fashion Cares has grown into one of the largest combined AIDS and breast cancer benefits in the country. Featuring a pre-show cocktail reception, silent and live auction, and runway show, this year takes Atlanta’s most fashionable affair to the recently renovated Phipps Plaza on Monday, August 31, 2015. Always aiming to impress, guests will slip into a completely transformed and private environment in the Monarch Court as Jeffrey Fashion Cares once again embarks on its mission to raise as much awareness and funds as possible for its beneficiaries, Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta and the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF).
“We are thrilled to be creating a modern vision venue at Phipps Plaza and are sure that the transformation will add to the excitement!” says Jeffrey Kalinsky, acclaimed retailer and Jeffrey Fashion Cares founder.
“We are honored to serve as host to this year’s Jeffrey Fashion Cares event,” adds Phipps Plaza Mall Manager Dewayne Herbert. “This year marks a significant milestone for Jeffrey as the brand celebrates its 25th anniversary at Phipps Plaza, and we’re delighted to toast to this accomplishment. The property recently completed a series of interior enhancements, and the transformed environment of the mall sets the perfect stage for a spectacular evening.”
The official kick-off to the fall social season, Jeffrey Fashion Cares was founded by Jeffrey Kalinsky, arbiter of style and creator of two namesake boutiques in Atlanta and Manhattan. This year, Kalinsky will once again join Event Chairs Lila Hertz, Jeffrey McQuithy and Louise Sams in producing what promises to be one of the most exciting events to date. Attendees are invited to enjoy a pre-show cocktail reception and silent auction followed by a live auction and runway show featuring Kalinsky’s style selections from high-end designers such as Lanvin, Celine, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Valentino, Dries van Noten, Saint Laurent Paris, Balenciaga, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik. Last year’s sold-out event raised $700,000 for Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta and the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF), and in its history, Jeffrey Fashion Cares has grown into one of the largest combined AIDS and breast cancer benefits in the country.
