Fashion Promo: Design Cares Fashion Show

I have been checking my schedule to see if there is any way possible for me to get up to NYC in time for this amazing annual event, Design Cares for St. Jude's. I really want to go but it's on a Thursday. Can I get to NY in an hour? Hmmmmmm.

Design Cares runway fashion show will benefit St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. What a great cause. The event happens on April 30, 2009 at The Armory, 26th Street and Lexington Avenue, New York, NY

On April 30 2009, Design Cares will feature a runway show of exclusive evening gowns by the world’s leading designers including:

Adrienne Landau • Alberto Ferretti • Angel Sanchez • B. Michael • Badgley Mischka • Carlos Alberto • Carolina Herrera • Catherine Malandrino • Chado Ralph Rucci • Christian Cota • David Meister • Diane von Furstenberg • Domenico Vacca • Edwing D'Angelo• Gucci • J. Gerard • J. Mendel • John Galliano • JonValdí Couture • Karl Lagerfeld • Luca Luca • Maggie Norris Couture • Marc Jacobs Collection • Matthew Williamson • Michael Kors • Narcisco Rodriguez • Neil Bieff • Nicole Miller • Reem Acra • Valentino • Vera Wang • Versace • Yigal Azrouel • Zuhair Murad and others

Every dress seen on the runway will be auctioned off at the event and online to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers. The event will be held at the Armory at 26 Street and Lexington Avenue from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The theme for this year’s Design Cares benefit fashion event is Kaleidoscope of Dreams. Design Cares 2009 will be the collaborative effort of many designers and with the added support of models, stylists, and celebrities, April 30th will truly be a kaleidoscope of fashion industry professionals coming together to keep the dreams alive for children with cancer.

For two St. Jude patients who aspire to be fashion designers, Design Cares is a dream come true. These two young girls were asked to design their dream evening gown. Two notable designers will recreate their visions for the runway and auction, including Christian Siriano, winner of Project Runway, season 4. Lisa Nargi, the winning model of Christian’s Project Runway season, will model one of the gowns on the runway. Tian Justman, a former St. Jude patient, is living her dream and is currently working as fashion designer. She will recreate the second design.
