My eyes were blinded by the shimmer and sparkle of head-to-toe sequins shining bright in all their brilliance as the model walked the walk for Jeffrey Kalinsky. I entered into the fittings as a runway look by designer [Michael] Halpern was being styled for the show. Jeffrey and JFC Co-chair Lila Hertz were focused, possibly mesmerized, by the model who wore a green, blue and purple sequin jumpsuit with matching knee-high sequin boot - a Halpern/Louboutin collab. The glamazons continued to march out of the Jeffrey Atlanta dressing room in showstoppers by Balenciaga, Givenchy, Dries Van Noten and Saint Laurent. If this preview was any indication of what's to come Monday, August 27 to the Jeffrey Fashion Cares runway, then hold on because JFC is planning to blow you away with a fashion tornado of the latest and hottest Fall looks of the season!
The 26th anniversary of Jeffrey Fashion Cares will benefit Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF), and the Medical University of South Carolina. Last year’s sold-out event raised nearly $860,000 for the organizations, and in its history, Fashion Cares has grown into one of the largest combined AIDS and breast cancer benefits in the country. For the 2018 philanthropic affair, guests are invited to mix, mingle and enjoy an unforgettably stylish evening in a completely transformed and private environment in the Monarch Court at the recently renovated Phipps Plaza.
