Trend-setting Madison Avenue in New York City was the setting for a very charitable event that took place on Tuesday evening, December 6th.
La Perla, a respected name in Italian luxury intimate apparel, swimwear and pret a porter, celebrated the evening as a means to launch in-store the new La Perla Jean Paul Gaultier Collection Createur. In doing this, the brand also partnered together with Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children’s Health in order to donate 10% of the profits from the evening.
Previewing the new collection and shopping for a cause were celebrities Rachel Roy, Cameron Silver and Allison Aston along with other distinguished guests and members of the Komansky Center.
The cuisine of the evening included Baci chocolates accompanied by a signature cocktail mixed by Forty Four at the Royalton Hotel.
Sultry models posed in the window wearing elegant pieces from the limited edition collection of Gaultier. Laser-perforated leather and signature Leavers lace were shown in very feminine styles while bondage inspired swimwear in transitional pieces characterized this newest Gaultier collection.
The Komansky Center is a full-service children’s hospital serving pediatric patients all over the world and providing comprehensive care from diagnosis to recovery in general pediatrics, emergency medicine, as well as a full range of medical and surgical subspecialties. The Center can boast receiving such honors as being listed on the 2011-2012 US News and World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals Honor Roll. They are affiliated with Weill Cornell Medical Center. This special evening was no doubt a great opportunity to gain more support for the outstanding efforts of this widely recognized charity.
La Perla is the top name in fashion and their sophisticated merchandise can be found through an international network of company-owned boutiques, high-end shops and prestige department stores.
