Hollyrod Foundation Design Care 2015 #StylistDiaries #20Models #Charity #AutismAwareness

I’ve ditched all my vices these days in favor of becoming an adrenaline junkie. There is nothing more exhilarating in my life than being thrown into an extreme situation. I live for it. That’swhy when I get offered a 20 model fashion show, I can NEVER say no.

When I was asked to help out with the amazing yearly Hollyrod Foundation Designcare 2015 event to tap a quality designer I said yes. In the past they have worked with fashion superstars such as Naem Khan and Emmauel Ungaro. Finding a fit in Los Angeles would be difficult but not impossible. I have great connections, and know even better designers. I tapped the stunningly talented Adolfo Sanchez and within 24 hours he and the amazing , Holly Peete Robinson and Hollyrod Foundation were working together.

Once you commit and find someone that is high caliber to a charity event this size things get out of control. First you get the designer, than you get tapped to help, than you are the Key Stylist for 20 models, in 20 looks with two personal assistants. The models were gorgeous, the dresses were beautiful, and made me remember why I got in this business 8+ years ago, and the cause was worth working for.

 

Backstage was small but we managed to get all the girls in their dresses and looking stunning. All the headpieces, crowns, etc were provided by the lovely Fiori Couture. She makes the most magical fantasy pieces of couture you have ever seen.

We even had fresh flowers thanks to @VSanchezFlowers from Orange county.

Believe it or not this hot mess turns into the most beautiful, and well coordinated show you have ever seen. This is what we managed.

Marie Bargas and Drea Johnson for helping me. Dressing models in dresses with 15-foot trains is no joke.

Things we love to support! Survivor Campaign by @LisaReillyPhotography on #IndieGoGo #CancerSurvivors #Bills #Help #Charity

Giving to the people, from the people rarely exists these days. Half the charities out there are a tax shelter and the other one’s don’t get any love unless helmed by a celebrity.

But wait! There is hope.

There are those of us on this planet who live with our heart on our sleeve and actually acknowledge human suffering on this planet just….to help. We’re talking about the small donations and ‘random acts of kindness’, YOU bring into this world.

That is why I stood up and became part of Lisa Reilly Photography’s AMAZING Survivor Campaign.

Lisa, who I met at LAFW had originally approached me with this campaign asking me if I would be willing to help raise funds and awareness for Cancer Survivors and their families, who are unable to pay for treatment or are left with hundreds of thousands of bills.

Check out Lisa’s IndieGoGo video for The Survivor Campaign!

I was happy to help. I also joined this campaign, being a Cancer survivor myself.

In 2013, I went for a routine check up and found out I had cervical cancer. I had to have surgery, which saved my life but left me with permanent complications and painful memories. However, they managed to cut the cells out of my body before they did major harm. I was a lucky one.

As I worked on this campaign other began to help as well. Tracie May-Wagner, CEO of May-Wagner PR contacted me. She wanted to help. She brought her client, the amazing Victor Wilde of The Bohemian Society on board. He in turn donated two pieces of his SS 2014 collection. Proving to me that there is ALWAYS support.

(Faith, Humanity, Restored)

No one should have to stand alone in their battle against cancer. Emotional or physical.

Shooting with Lisa underwater was extraordinary. It took everything I was doing this for and changed it.Not only was I helping others who have been through and going through pain, but I created something positive out of my Cancer experience. I never thought I could look back at this as more than a charitable session but it really changed how I look back at having had Cancer and is giving me a chance to empower others that have had it.

Check out the video out of the amazing video of Amy W. & I shooting underwater and describing our experiences (Video by D’arby Rose) ;

The women pictured in Lisa’s campaign have all fought and lived with Cancer. The women above have Stage 4 Aggressive cancer, survived a double mastectomy and cervical cancer. Going through chemotherapy and severe treatments that have costed them time, sanity, health and a small fortune.

Donating to this campaign will help them continue their fight. We’re taking donations as low as $10 to help raise funds and have packages up to $5,000 for every size and income. Please help us reach our goal so Cancer victims stand a fighting chance.

Ride to Feed @ Soul Cycle 4/21, Sunset Plaza, Time to Give Back Angelenos! #Exercise #Charity #MealsonWheels

I f you haven’t given to charity this year, here’s your chance to become a key player in philanthropy in Los Angeles.

The awesome folks over at Michelle PR sent me this. Being a huge fan of charitable causes I wanted to share this, suggest it and push strongly that you go and partake.

The drive is for ‘Meals on Wheels’, which, I have actually donated to thankyouverymuch.

Meals on Wheels was created to distribute a nice, healthy, hot meal to Senior Citizens who are home-bound and can’t prepare food or go to the market themselves in Los Angeles county. We’re talking about the your grandparents here so PAY ATTENTION.

The event will take place on April 21st. There are two ways you can help

1) Be a rider. The great part is riders get free schwag bags that include;

Junk Food tee,

Which we adore being fashion addicts on this site,

a Cart for a Cause Cook Book, a St. Vincent Meals on Wheels angel pin and more for taking time to raise awareness for this important cause. Are you hooked? I am!

2) Be an attendee. With celebrity chef, Michael Fiorelli hosting this, you know you want to go. Tickets are $50 and that is a small amount to give for a charity. Because charity is AWESOME (and tax deductible)

In the past charitable events have raised enough money to distribute 25,000 meals a year for ‘Meals on Wheels’ so yes, you will be making a difference. If you can’t be a rider there is hope for you. You can attend this event by buying tickets on eventbrite HERE;
