Boys’ Latin “Night of Fashion”

“Night of Fashion” featured designer Derek Lam who presented his latest collection with Neiman Marcus.


The 3rd annual fundraiser benefiting Boys’ Latin was held at Neiman Marcus in King of Prussia on Wednesday, April 20th. “Night of Fashion,” formerly known as “Old Bags Night Out,” featured fashion designer Derek Lam who presented his latest collection with Neiman Marcus senior vice president and fashion director Ken Downing as emcee of the fashion show. This year’s event honored Susan Buckley and Susan Burch, supporters of Boys’ Latin since its inception in 2007. Both women became the 2016 recipients of the Ultimate Mentor Award for their dedication to providing educational opportunity to children in need. More than 300 guests, mostly fashionably dressed women (some wearing vintage Derek Lam) dined on Capital Grille fare and bid on fabulous silent auction items. In previous years, there was a designer bag silent auction, but this year featured different items. After the show, there was a meet-and-greet with Lam and Downing, as well as a pop-up Lam boutique where guests could buy his latest fashions with a percentage of the sales going to Boys’ Latin.
