ATLANTA — If Jeffrey Fashion Cares is any indication, both luxury fashion and philanthropy are alive and well, despite talk of economic and retail malaise.
Over 800 people shelled out $500 a ticket and braved a stormy Monday night for the 16th annual fashion event, held at 55 Allen Plaza in downtown Atlanta. Fashion Cares has become the city’s signature fall fashion kickoff and, with a live auction and corporate donations, this year raised over $700,000 for AIDS and breast cancer charities. A similar event, held in New York in the spring, is now in its fifth year.
