Charity Gets Chic
Many homes and modes of transit in the New York area are still tragically damaged due to hurricane Sandy, and Manhattan's outpouring of help proves that getting things back to normal for these families, businesses and workers is still at the top of our holiday to-do lists. And the events and auctions sprung from this disaster are really going there: Sandy Relief charity initiatives are getting chic in the name of the cause. Just look at the CFDA/Vogue catalogue of auctions.
The ones closing in just two days (December 12th) include tickets to Jason Wu's F/W '13 show, or to Dolce & Gabbana's in Milan, a dinner party cooked by Peter Som, a custom pair of Manolos, a haircut by Frederic Fekkai, tea with Grace Coddington, dinner with Andre Leon Talley, or lunch with Rachel Zoe.
