On Friday, September 1st, fashion's most glamorous (and socially responsible) braved torrential rain and bracing winds to come together at the Garden of Ono for the Fashion for Peace show. A fundraiser held by the Business Council for Peace, the fashion show and trunk sale featured the work of three up-and-coming designers, and proceeds benefited Bpeace, an organization working to support women-run sustainable businesses in areas of global conflict.

Lush foliage and shantung-draped cabanas made the Garden of Ono a luxurious setting for an outdoor fashion event in any weather. During the show itself, champagne-sipping guests huddled under umbrellas to watch scantily-clothed models dodge puddles in dangerously high stilettos. The girls came out draped in everything from stunning silk charmeuse to spandex swimwear, but the most original runway concept was showing an entire men’s collection on delicate models wearing nothing but flirtatiously opened shirts and jewels to match.

Before and after the show, designers were on hand to discuss their collections with partygoers. Tullee Vintage Couture and Millinery (www.tullee.com and info@tullee.com), designed by Pamela Boudreaux, featured re-imagined vintage dresses and hats that were updated for a new generation of society ladies. Natasha Ulyanov presented a collection of luxury swim and resortwear, as well as a separate presentation of sumptuous crystal-encrusted eveningwear. The label to watch is definitely Bogosse, a sexy men's shirt brand favored by celebrities from Usher to Ryan Seacrest, and designed by former soccer star Patrick Tardieu and his brother, Fabrice. Their Spring '07 collection was filled with bespoke details combined with unexpected colors that screamed of refinement and fun.
