Last night I sipped pink cocktails in my pink outfit in a room full of pink at Dirty Bar in Dupont. We were celebrating the one-month-to-go mark for Pink Jams’ Pink Rocks the Runway, which will be held October 21.
The event will promote breast cancer awareness and feature designer and Project Runway star Christian Siriano and his Spring 2012 Ready to Wear collection. Plus, in celebration of women who have battled breast cancer before the age of 40, 14 emerging D.C fashion designers were asked to create a couture pink gown to grace the runway modeled by young survivors. Get tickets here.
At the launch party last night, those ‘Rock the Pink’ cocktails – along with raffle tickets – raised money for Pink Jams. I even won a raffle prize: a $250 gift certificate to spend at the 2012 Food & Wine Festival! Here are some photos from Gwo Yang.
