Fashion? Check. Do-Gooding? Check. Fabu-Delish? Bien sur!

Design Cares: Kaleidoscope of Dreams event benefiting the St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital – one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research and treatment centers- is a kaleidocope of Designers, Celebrities, The Altruistic and The Socialites such as Iman, Phillip Bloch and Lydia Hearst!

Quite touching, two current St. Jude cancer patients wishing to be fashion designers when they grow up,  have been paired with designers Christian Sirrano (of Project Runway Season 4) and Tian Justman, a former St. Jude patient and cancer survivor!

The children’s drawings will be interpreted for the runway and auction by Sirrano and Justman. How wonderfully karmic and haute couture of them both!

As a fashion benefit, Design Cares 2009 features culinary delights, an auction, dancing and a runway show launching the Models of Hope.

Socialites and celebs with a mean walk and good hearts will gather pledges as they showcase creations by designers Carolina Herrera, Catherine Malandrino, Diane von Furstenberg, John Galliano, Marc Jacobs Collections, Maggie Norris Couture, Nicole Miller, Vera Wang, Yigal Azrouel…

 *The Faux Socialite© swoons. After reviving The Faux Socialite© with spritzes of  Quelques Fleurs Royale Eau de Parfum, PA Birdie secretly asks PA Jessica if swooning is a regular occurrence. PA Jessica rolls her eyes in exasperation.*
