WHAT: The Resort 2011 Malandrino + FFAWN collection and runway show launched at the Museum of Modern Art. A cocktail party in the garden was followed by a runway show in the Atrium.
A pledge of 100% of the evening’s ticket proceeds were donated to FFAWN with a goal to raise enough funds to send a graduating class of seniors from the Women’s Academy of Excellence in Bronx, NY to college.
The Malandrino + FFAWN collection pays homage to iconic moments in fashion and music with images such as Tina Turner, Al Green, Chaka Kahn, Donna Summer and Grace Jones. Highlights include studded leather jackets, high-waist wide-leg pants, cool jersey t-shirts and caftans.
