This photo, by Ben Rose, pretty much sums it up. Jeffrey Kalinsky, focused and committed, in a moment of silence, Jeffrey watches his models during one final run through before showtime. What is going through his mind, only he can answer that question, but the outcome is nothing short of perfection.

"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.

The 20th Anniversary of Jeffrey Fashion Cares was a sensational celebration of life and fashion. JFC founder, Jeffrey Kalinsky has so much to be proud of and thankful for. In a tender, heartfelt welcome, he recognized the hard work and contributions of co-chair Lila Hertz who has chaired the event, passionately and tirelesslyfor ten years. The runway show, which opened with selected looks from special guest designer Joseph Altuzarra, also featured designs from some of the world's top labels [all carried at Jeffrey] such as Lanvin, Givenchy and Dries Van Noten. If I had the power to change one thing about the fashion show, it's that I would have made it in slow motion... it was just that damn good! *Later this week, Style Mag VM will bring you full coverage of the event, including VIP backstage access and a one-on-one with Altuzarra. [For now] I have more than 70 runway images to share with you from Jeffrey Fashion Cares. These pics are raw; straight out of my iPhone... see what I saw!
