Some of NYC's top beautiful people were at Central Park West last night to raise money for Fashion Fights Cancer's Global Fashion Fight. Supermodel Claudia Mason and a few pageant queens graced the event, along with designers and other glitterati. The organization, founded by exec Ty Canty serves to nurture cancer patients through fashion and design in addition to raising funds to cancer research.
The benefit evening included a wine reception and designer sample sale to benefit the cause. The venue was a gallery exhibit of gorgeous fashion photographs by Chayo Mato. The subjects were fierce, style personalities who have been touched by different forms of cancer. I was particularly touched seeing people I have known and worked with in the photographs, like designer Carmen Marc Valvo. It served to remind me once again, how often, how directly it affects everyone's lives.
