Last week, the Cancer Support Community (CSC) hosted the 12th Annual “In Fashion!” Luncheon & Fashion Show at Saks Fifth Avenue on City Avenue. Nearly 100 ladies lunched, mingled and checked out fashions featuring special guest designer Norisol Ferrari.
New York-raised Ferrari popped onto the NY fashion scene about three years ago, and draws on her Venezuelan roots to bring a world culture experience to all of her cutting-edge designs, many of which were inspired by icons Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth.
The day started with cocktails and conversations at 11 a.m. At noon, guests sat down for lunch and enjoyed a fashion show featuring Norisol’s designs modeled by local cancer survivors and professional models. There was a silent auction, and there was shopping, as Saks generously donated a portion of all sales during the event to the Cancer Support Community and local families living with cancer. Co-chairs for the luncheon were Lydie Szabo Brown and Wendy H. Rosen.
