Thursday evening, I attended a fabulous charity event at Churchill’s in Mount Kisco, New York. My line has been selling at this fab boutique for awhile now amongst several fantastic lines including The Row, Brochu Walker, Helmut Lang, ALC and Loris Diran. The store is owned by Danielle Churchill and Lori Land, two of the of the nicest women in the Industry, who support domestically made brands.
It was a perfect night for a drive up to Westchester. The honorary chair for the event was Catherine Zeta Jones and the evening’s festivities were to raise money for the Max Cure Foundation. This non-profit organization raises money for pediatric cancer causes. The Max Cure Fund at Memorial Sloan Kettering is the primary beneficiary of The Max Cure Foundation, but funds raised are also used to support other worthy causes focused on pediatric cancer treatments and improving the lifestyle of children afflicted by cancer.
I planned to arrive early to be certain they had the MV tote I was donating in time for the live auction. When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised to see designer Loris Diran, the 2011 Rising Star winner for menswear design who was also a participant of our “Make it in Manhattan” exhibition this past fashion week. Loris creates both women’s and men’s clothing. Diran has mastered the art of design, having worked at design houses including Versace, Claude Montana and Chanel. Loris helped add allure to the event, by having models in attendance, adorned in his gorgeous pieces.
See the below pictured gown(love the chain detail) to consider for an upcoming evening soiree or perhaps the knee-length daytime dress for an afternoon wedding our luncheon . Both are exclusively Made in New York and can be purchased at Churchill’s.
Support the mission.
