Jeffrey Kalinsky, creator and style-aficionado behind eponymous boutiques in Atlanta and New York, hosted the 21st annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares Atlanta fashion show and cocktail fete. Every year the proceeds from this sartorial soiree benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure—Greater Atlanta Affiliate, and the Atlanta AIDS Fund.
One of the hottest tickets in town, the runway show features fashions from Jeffrey Atlanta as well as legwear from SPANX! The August 26 party marked the event’s “coming of age,” as it was the 21st JFC. 2013 was also the 7th year in a row that SPANX has been involved in this worthy cause.
This year’s fashions were straight off the international runways, with pieces from design houses like Dior, Oscar de la Renta and Saint Laurent.
In addition to adding a splash of SPANX to the leggy looks, we went behind the seams and showed our social media followers the event from before to after party! Check out our Facebook and Instagram coverage for all the designer details.
We also had a chance to chat with Jeffrey owner and event founder, Jeffrey Kalinsky. Read on to find out his fall favorites and why he thinks SPANX are important for all fashionistas!
