NEW YORK — Kenneth Cole’s passions will converge this week as he accepts an honor for 27 years of AIDS activism from amfAR tonight and returns to the runway after a seven-year hiatus Thursday night at Skylight Modern here.
As chairman of amfAR, Cole is working closely with IMG Fashion to bring the charity’s message to New York Fashion Week. The amfAR gala is part of the official show calendar, which will be kicked off with a special ribbon cutting by Mayor Michael Bloomberg at 6:45 p.m. tonight at Cipriani Wall Street, where the gala takes place.
