Our Closet held their 3rd annual “Fashion for All” at Neiman Marcus, King of Prussia, on Wednesday, November 30, 2016. The event was a benefit for Our Closet, powered by JFCS. Executive Director Jill Aschkenasy founded the organization in 2011, and it provides clothing free of charge to people in need through “pop-up shops” around town. Each pop up store is set up like a real store with different departments, dressing rooms and volunteers to assist in finding just the right outfit for each person. They can choose up to five articles of clothing . At the event on Wednesday, the lunchtime benefit started with a cocktail party, with passed hors d’oeuvres, before guests headed to the 3rd floor to enjoy a Nieman Marcus fashion show curated by Ana Maria Pimental, Neiman Marcus’ Accessories Fashion Director. Co-chairs of the event were Janice Blumenthal, Jamea Campbell, Haley Lesser, Sandi Slap and Shannon Zeller.
