Even the cold drizzle of a week-long rain storm couldn’t put a damper on the fabulous fashion of last Tuesday night’s Donna Karan Preview, hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue. The event launched the festivities for our San Francisco Ballet Auxiliary’s annual Fashion Show on May 18th, this year featuring iconic American designer Donna Karan.
We were swept into a world of glamour and beauty as Auxiliary members and guests entered Saks’ glowing Donna Karan boutique in the Union Square flagship store. Sparkling champagne and delectable hors d’oeuvres were the perfect accompaniment to Karan’s new spring line, a celebration of femininity and artistry in whisper light silks and intricately draped jersey. Lithe models snaked through the crowds in tailored day dresses and sweeping gowns. The highlight was a gold paillette mermaid design, just waiting for a red carpet to walk!
It is a privilege to celebrate the work of Donna Karan, an extraordinary designer with a keen eye for beauty in all its forms. It was an honor to welcome guests and we enjoyed admiring each of the beautifully crafted pieces in the Saks boutique.
As the evening drew to a close, we were treated to gift bags filled with goodies from local favorite Miette Bakery and gift cards from Epicenter Med Spa. A feast of beauty for all the senses! Saks generously donated 10% of all purchases from the evening to San Francisco Ballet. Thank you to all who purchased that night.
