Event recap: Jeffrey Fashion Cares turns 21!

Boots, bows, gloves, feathers, jewel tones, colorful prints. The runway at this year’s Jeffrey Fashion Cares was full of these! Jeffrey Kalinsky’s impeccable collection of fall trends left you wanting to run straight into his store at Phipps Plaza and snag them all up.






This year was a big year for JFC: It celebrated its 21st anniversary! To commemorate its coming-of-age, the event featured stunning fashions from Proenza Schouler, Lanvin, Valentino, Erdem, Emilio Pucci, Narcisco Rodriguez, and Oscar de la Renta, to name a few.

Over the last 21 years, the event has raised more than $11 million for local breast cancer and AIDS charities. I had the honor of being part of the planning committee for JFC this year and am so proud to have participated in this event!
