The 26th Annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares – An Evening of Fashion and Philanthropy

Jeffrey Kalinsky, the creator of two namesake boutiques in Atlanta and Manhattan, celebrated 26 years of Jeffrey Fashion Cares Atlanta on Monday, August 27, 2018. The annual fashion-forward, philanthropic event was once again hosted by Event Chairs Lila Hertz, Jeffrey McQuithy and Louise Sams. A sold-out evening, Atlanta’s most notable gathered in Phipps Plaza in the heart of Buckhead to enjoy a high-energy cocktail reception and silent auction followed by a live auction and runway show featuring Kalinsky’s style selections from high-end designers including Celine, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Dries Van Noten, Sacai, Saint Laurent Paris, Balenciaga, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik. Kalinsky is also set to open his first West Coast location in Palo Alto.

The 26th anniversary of Jeffrey Fashion Cares benefitted Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF), and the Medical University of South Carolina. Over the course of its history, Jeffrey Fashion Cares has raised more than 15 million dollars for its beneficiaries.  For more information, visit jeffreyfashioncares.com.

Jeffrey Kalinsky’s Fall Trend Forecast: 

If there is one bold font message from the Fall 2018 shows, it’s that fashion is forever changing. In a world where both menswear and womenswear are being presented together, brands are evolving from the notion of seasonal collections.

Here are some trends we noticed on the runways:

Sparkle

Traditional sequins just don’t cut it. Your favorite knits, dresses, and coats have been transformed into exploded novelty items. The whirl of paillettes storming down the runway was hard to miss and the most shimmering jumpsuits were sent down the catwalk.

Oversize

Jeffrey Fashion Cares oversize fashion

Enormous fashion, anyone? Don’t be afraid to layer up with 2-in-1 pieces or oversized strong shoulder outerwear reminiscent of the 80’s. Designers are delivering exciting collaborations with this trend.

Neon

Not afraid of color! Fall 2018 brings you iridescent dresses that can be seen from a mile away.  On the runway, there were eye-popping neons (pink, green, and orange) in every type of fabric imaginable, including florescent infused knits.

Plaid

Plaid looked richer than ever this season. We saw perfect tailoring to strong outerwear, all featuring plaid or plaid prints.

The 2018 edition of Jeffrey Fashion Cares was not only the most fashionable yet but was also the most diverse. From attendees to auctions and even the runway models, this year saw a much more inclusive audience. When you see events at Phipps Plaza better reflecting the city at large, you know you’re heading in the right direction.

We can’t wait for 2019!
