Runway Relief, Breakfast At Tiffany's & Hand-made Clutches

We are packing and heading to California this weekend for an exclusive evening of Art, Fashion and philanthropy which will benefit the children of Syria and the people of Burma hosted by Nahda Designs and produced by the fame stylist Engie Hassan. If you would like to donate, you may do so here.

I have been following the non-for-profit Council of Fashion Designers in America and Vogue's episodes. The CFDA and Vogue are running a challenge through where the winner will win business mentorship and one winner will get $300,000 and two runner-ups will get $100,000. This is to promote and mentor new talent. You can learn how to apply here. In the last episode, the designers were given with the collaboration of Tiffany the challenge to design around the "The Great Gaptsy", which happens to be one of my favorite time eras. The 1920's. You can see the episode here.

Designer Wes Gordon's idea was to design a trenchcoat that you can wear as a dress and nothing underneath(well, not literally right Wes?). I like the idea, but I have seen it happen before.

Tabitha Simmons took inspiration from the headband Cary Mulligan was wearing in the The Great Gaptsy.

This morning I came across an online boutique that hand-makes clutches.
