“[The organizers] said to me, ‘can you get into runway mode?’” said Simon Doonan, creative ambassador at large at Barneys, who sported a navy Theory blazer backstage at The Blue Jacket Fashion Show Wednesday night. “And I said, I’m always in runway mode. My problem is not being able to get out of runway mode.”
Held at Pier 59, the first annual fashion show aimed to bring awareness to prostate cancer, a disease that ranks as the second leading cause of death among men. Designers like Joseph Abboud, Nick Graham and Nicole Miller were tapped to create custom designed blue jackets to be worn by the likes of host Carson Kressley, Mario Cantone and Lee Tergesen, among others. A few of the designs are currently up for auction, with proceeds benefiting the National Prostate Cancer Foundation.
