Forté Charity Fashion Show

Last night at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC, the SEAM COLLECTIVE launched their Spring/Summer 2010 Forté Charity Fashion Show.

Project Runway’s finalist KENLEY COLLINS was the headlining designer debuting her highly anticipated Spring 2010 Collection. The stylish event also showcased Sheila Frank, MARISSA ERSKINE, an F.I.T graduate debuting her first RTW contemporary line and ELIZABETH RYNISH, a RTW Women's designer specializing in unique boutique clientele.

50% of all ticket sales were generously donated to Gilda's Club New York City. Gilda’s Club New York City creates welcoming communities of free support for everyone living with cancer – men, women, teens and children – along with their families and friends. This innovative program is an essential complement to medical care, providing networking and support groups, workshops, lectures and social activities, all free of charge

The event included a complimentary cocktail reception and runway show, which featured a silent auction where guests had the opportunity to bid on unique garments from each designer.
