Fashion was in full swing at this sold out charity luncheon. The room was bustling with stylish women mixing, mingling and sharing fashion tips and secrets. The runway showed Fall favorite colors like red, deep maroon, shades of bright blue with colorful furs and hot pink. Our favorite boutique at the lobby was FTA Jewelry Design by Fariba Almassi. The Best Dressed Diva was Karina Barbieri in Mary Katrantzou. Overall a fun filled afternoon supporting a wonderful cause with plenty of style.
