These are pictures from the fashion show I organized during New York Fashion Week in February 2012 for Bottomless Closet called ‘Real Fashion, Real Women’ at the Empire Hotel. Women who had struggled with homelessness for several reasons were casted by me to walk down the runway, and designers like DKNY, Eileen Fisher, Milly, among others donated the dresses used. Kim Hicks donated the brocade fishtail gown shown here to be auctioned on eBay to raise funds for Bottomless Closet. Fashion personalities like designer Richie Rich and stylist June Ambrose also supported the night with their presence. Who says fashion is just superficial? It can definitely make a difference in people’s lives! Read more about this special night here.
