Belafigura fashion show kicks off Saks shopping weekend


It was all things pink at Saks Fifth Avenue Chevy Chase as fashionistas ‘shopped til they dropped’ to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. The Key to the Cure 2010 kicked off the 4-day shopping weekend with a Belafigura fashion show – an exclusive collection to Saks Chevy Chase.

Survivor models graced the runway, and designer Minoo Mobin-Ventura – a 6-year kidney survivor herself – donated a piece from her Belafigura 2011 collection to each model.

I was honored to be the official spokesmodel and host for Belafigura.

Key to the Cure shopping continues until October 24. Saks Fifth Avenue will be donating 2% of all sales this weekend to women’s cancer programs at Suburban Hospital, along with a $375 thousand donation to the Breast Cancer Research Fund.
