As far as charity events go, Fiber Hair Spa knows how to do it right. On a rainy Friday night, I attended a benefit for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation which featured models, hors d'oeuvres, wine, and a new cocktail with a glowing bottle, and no, it glowed before I drank from it.

Fashion designer Zulema Griffin (yes, of Project Runway fame) lent pieces from her beautiful collection for even more beautiful models to strut around in whilst I snacked on finger food and wine and watched as gracious attendees admired Siman Tu's jewelery and sipped on a neon green cocktail. Wait, what? That's right- cocktails provided courtesy of Ty-Ku, a new "healthy" sake. What started out as a started as a grad-school business project at Columbia University, this beverage is a beneficial infusion of Asian pears, pomegranates, herbs, ginseng, and damania, which is good because you will need all the help you can get when you mix it with vodka and fall down a flight of stairs. Gladly, the latter did not happen, and to be fair, the drink was quite tasty.

Orlando New York's furs were also a huge hit of the party, and those who wanted to could get complimentary make-overs or bid on items in the silent auction. I'm glad to see that so much of the fashion community gives back to causes like this, and my hat goes off to the Fiber Hair Spa for orchestrating such a fun and well organized event. Even if I did leave with the wrong umbrella.
