Guest fashion designer David Peck and guest jewelry designers Joan Hornig and Ava Maistrellis, Tootsies GM Sara Mixon, Emcee Vikki Locke, and GOCA executive director Doug Barron and honorary chair Renee Starke
A packed house of fashion lovers enjoyed cocktails, bites from new restaurant 7 Lamps, a DJ and a runway show that not only featured top fall looks, but also an amazing group of ovarian cancer survivors walking the catwalk with the professional models. New York and Paris-trained designer David Peck flew in from his native Texas to showcase his vibrant, feminine frocks, while jeweler/philanthropist Joan Hornig displayed gorgeous, earthy gems with proceeds from each purchase going to the charity of your choice. Local designer Ava Maistrellis was also on hand to showcase her handcrafted Italian, “Silver Lining” wallets collection. A DJ rocked girl-power tunes as these inspiring women showcased fall looks from hot labels like Lela Rose, Michael Kors, Rachel Zoe, Roberto Cavalli, Yigal Azrouel, Robert Rodrigues, Diane von Furstenberg and Alice + Olivia. A luxe auction including a custom dinner at Murphy’s, David Yurman jewels, and a Bulgari bag, contributed further funds to the GOCA cause.
Among the festive crowd dressed to the nines for this touching Fashion Night Out evening: Christine Pullara, Amy Nelson, Jennifer Arrendale, Michaeline Roland, Brandie Park, Lisa Fuller, Pam Smart, Marilyn Krone, Aida Flamm, Sonya Halpern, Kimberly Shapiro, Janet Kempe, April Trigg, Cathy Dunaway Thrift, Karen Redinger, Donna Davidson, and Beth Houser.
Proceeds from the night of shopping went towards GOCA. For more information visit: www.gaovariancancer.org
