Threads Of Color

Anyone who loves and appreciates fashion, especially American design, should check out a wonderful organization called Threads Of Color.  A non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the global diversity of American Fashion Designers as well as raising scholarship funds for fashion students, TOC is doing its part to save the garment center.  And we love them!

the artistic invitation

I was lucky enough to be invited by my dear friend and TOC co-executive director, Mitria di Giacomo, (CEO and President, Nexusplexus) to a fashionable fundraiser last week called "Salute to America."  Excited and proud to be involved, I purchased a ticket and showed up... fashionably late.  Typical.  Well, in my defense it was completely across town and there was a blizzard!

at the event, staying warm and dry!

Inside Bernstein Displays Showroom, mannequins (and a few live models) were decked out in red, white and blue ensembles by Tommy Hilfiger, Lafayette 148 and Elieen Fisher as well as some of the scholarship winners. Guests mingled, studied the displays and devoured the snacks and drinks.  To read more about the event, click here.

With designers/members including; Carmen Marc Valvo, Stephen Burrows and Tracy Reese, the organization is growing and is sure to be an integral part of sustaining fashion in New York City (a.k.a. the fashion capital of the world!  Maybe I'm just biased.)  Please take a look at their website and support their mission by making a donation.
