Shaare Zedek Lunch
Fashion and fundraising came together yesterday in a rainbow of colour and chain of daisies at the lunch we co-hosted with Shaare Zedek UK. In an effort to raise funds for Shaare Zedek’s new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Jerusalem, 160 guests gathered to lunch and preview the new Pre Fall collection. On the catwalk, floral 3D-embroidery fluttered past before a finale of featherlight silk gowns – all the more striking as their light tones contrasted with earlier vibrant summer shades. Before the afternoon was over, there were thrills in the raffle and a few friendly fights for the Amelia bag in the silent auction. All in the name of a good cause, of course.
With many thanks to Gail Sackloff, Stephanie Kronson and Simi Ben Hur of Shaare Zedek. Thank you also goes to the Haymarket Hotel, Next Model Management, Mark Smith from John Frieda on hair and Lisa Potter-Dixon, Head Make-Up Artist of Benefit Cosmetics UK.
The event was sponsored by Bank Leumi and the Kennedy Leigh Charitable Trust.
