A crowd of about 250 attended the Oct. 21 event at Saks Fifth Avenue to support breast cancer research. The mostly female crowd enjoyed a Champagne breakfast followed by a moving message from breast cancer survivor Katie Mueller.
Saks presented a Best of Saks fashion show, including Etro, Oscar de la Renta, Akris, Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Michael Kors, Burberry and more. The day concluded with a shopping extravaganza and makeup stations, where attendees enjoyed mini-makeovers.
Saks general manager Larry Buchanan generously donated 2 percent of sales Thurs., Oct. 20, through Sun., Oct. 23, to support the cause. The recipient of this year’s funds is TGen (Translational Genomics Research Institute).
Bijen Dyrek and Vicki Vaughn were the event co-chairs.
