2009 August 19
(NEW YORK) For the last 17 years, dedicated shoppers have traveled to the retail mecca that is Beverly Hills for Project Angel Food’s annual Divine Design extravaganza. Held over several days in a 30,000 square-foot marketplace, the shopping event offers donated products by the likes of Alberta Ferretti, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Monique Lhuillier, Catherine Malandrino, Oscar de la Renta, Salvatore Ferragamo, Ted Baker London, and many more—with 100% of sales benefitting project Angel Food, a free meal delivery service in Los Angeles County that benefits men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. This year’s event will be kicking off with an equally chic gala. CFDA executive director Steven Kolb will be honored as this year’s Man of Style, and Barbie will be honored as the Devine Design Fashion Icon.
The honorees won’t be the only dose of star power at the gala, though. Joe Zee is serving as Honorary Fashion chair of the event, and Elle Décor’s Margaret Russell and interior designer Michael Smith will be this year’s Honorary Home co-chairs. “I am both touched and honored to serve as this year’s Honorary Chairman for Divine Design Fashion 2009, not only because it invites the fashion world to take part in such a wonderful charity event but also because of what it benefits--Project Angel Food,” said Zee. “It’s no coincidence that this unique organization has attracted so much support from some of the world’s top designers and continues to garner more attention every year.” Divine Design’s opening night gala will take place December 3 in Beverly Hills.
