3rd Annual Design Cares Event  for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Chanel Iman, Veronica Webb, Jill Nicolini, and Phillip Bloch Hosted the 3rd Annual Design Cares Event Co-chaired by Reynaldo Davis Carter and Dawn Gallagher, presented by Sak’s Fifth Avenue for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The event was graced by many faces including the likes of Oscar nominee, Taraji P. Henson, actors, Lindsay Price, Jessica Gomez, Tony Sirico, Mizuo Peck, and Shannen Doherty, as well as America’s Next Top Model winner, Jaslene Gonzalez, and “Bravo’s New York Housewife” Ramona Singer for this year’s event entitled “Kaleidoscope of Dreams.”

The celebs, fashion industry heavy hitters, and a who’s who of New York elite attended last night’s benefit to honor Courtney, age 7, and Micah, age 8 year, both St. Jude cancer patients. The two young ladies have always dreamed of being fashion designers, and Design Cares made their dream of seeing their own designs grace a New York City runway a reality, thanks to the generosity of St. Jude, its donors and a literal “kaleidoscope” of fashion industry talent. Through the support of dedicated sponsors, Design Cares paired Courtney and Micah with celebrity and budding fashion designers, including Christian V. Siriano, Project Runway Season 4 winner (www.christianvsiriano.com) and Tian Justman (www.tianjustman.com), cancer survivor, former St. Jude patient, and emerging talent.
