Boss Lady with the inspirational Martine Cauthen, survivor of Haiti's earthquake, who spoke on the night and reminded everyone of the night's purpose. 100% of proceeds on the night were made into money orders that were sent to UNICEF today (see the image below) to assist their efforts with victims of Haitis devastating earthquake.
There were clothes left over on the night and we're currently looking at the best way to ship them to Haiti to those who need them. A huge thank you to those who came out and shopped, those who promoted the event on Twitter, Facebook, etc, and most of all, thanks to the amazing brands for allowing such a special event to take place: Flud Watches, Blac Label, Eight 732, Rocawear, Ed Hardy, Apple Bottoms, FILA, LRG, Frank 151, MilkCrate, Live Mechanics, Blue Route, DimePiece, COOGI, Les Halles, Hello Drama, William Rast, Siwy Jeans and LaROK.
