NEW YORK - Join Fashion Fights Cancer patrons and supporters for cocktails, sweets and savories at the annual holiday party taking place at KTCHN in the OUT Hotel on Monday December 10th.

The event will feature a host of special elements this year including a visual pop up gallery of 20 inspiring photographs of FFC participants captured through the lens of renowned photographer Giovanni Zaccagnini Chanel’s Campaign Model Saskia De Brauw. The FFC’s “Message of Life” is a visual collection of feel good portraits printed in oversized black and white with support of Duggal Studios. The “Message of Life” is a photo journey following the joyous participants, encapsulates the program and portrays the intimate side of healing through self-­‐sustainability and the FFC initiative.

CFDA Jewelry Designer Pamela Love will debut her Love Wheel Collection, in which she taught seven of FFC patients to design their own jewelry in which will support future programming. Groove the night away to the sounds of New York’s “IT” girl spinstress DJ Kalkutta, all in the spirit of giving, support for the mission of this important organization.
