Jennifer Leavitt, Vice President of Marketing at The Bellevue Collection, opened up the show and welcomed the hundreds of guests in attendance.

The mission of The Moyer Foundation is to provide comfort, hope and healing to children affected by loss and family addiction. The Foundation supports programs that directly serve critical needs of children in severe distress and has raised millions of dollars to help support hundreds of different programs that help children in distress in a variety of ways.  The Foundation funds Camp Erin, the largest network of free bereavement camps in the country for children and teens who are grieving a significant loss and Camp Mariposa, for children affected by addiction in their families.  Front Row Fashion raised $61,000 from tickets sales to help the Foundation and the children!

Cara Crowley, a market stylist for Vogue, took the stage and talked about Vogue’s great five year partnership with Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection. She gave special thanks to those who helped make the evening happen, including Brigid Walsh, Director, Special Events & Partnerships for Vogue, Shannon Davidson of Shannon Davidson Productions, and style expert Lawrence Zarian, whose new book, Lawrence Zarian’s Ten Commandments for a Perfect Wardrobe, can be purchased here.  She also thanked Obadiah Salon and specifically Vu Montgomery for the hair styles and Sephora for all of the makeup looks.
