Pics -The Dream: Fall 2017 Benefit Fashion Show and Silent Auction by Designer Chuks Collins

Designer Chuks Collins and crew reiterate the importance of mixing social causes with enterprise during New York Fashion Week. After a second lease on life the designer founded a nonprofit and for the past several years he has coordinated the release of his latest collection viewing with a fundraising event. This year’s soiree, The Dream: Fall 2017 Benefit Fashion Show and Silent Auction was in collaboration with Oando Foundation U.S. and took place at Angel Orensanz Foundation in the Lower East Side.

The Chuks Collins label offers ready to wear fashions for men and women that appreciate sophisticated style and this season the ensembles ranged from modern elegance to casual chic in a handsome array of bold colors. The affair also included sharing the vision for the function including how funds raised would be used in the Adopt-A-School initiative for children in Chuks Collins’ home country, Nigeria. The silent auction courtesy of Charity Grow provided an opportunity for making a tax deductible donation in addition to the portion of proceeds from tickets.

Event co-hosts Claudia Jordan (Real Housewives of Atlanta, Celebrity Apprentice) and Hadiiya Barbel (celebrity wigmaker and transformation artist) welcomed the crowd and with the introduction Sony Music artist SUMMER Williams who performed new music from her EP Hello Again the vibe turned relaxed and readied spectators for the main attraction. Special guests attendees included rapper Peter Gunz, Orange Is the New Black actress Adrienne Moore, Influencer Manon Mathews, ​TV Personality Chrissy “Monroe” Crastanda, Taneka Bowles, dentist to the stars Dr. Rubinov, founder of PiperWai Sarah Ribner, actor Marc John Jefferies, pop singer Chelley, radio personality Miss Lissa, entertainment personality Al Reynolds, Antoine’ and Andre’ Von Boozier aka the Von Boozier Twins, as well as several celebrity stylists including TY Hunter and Kidear Youmans. A great deal of this was made possible thanks to sponsors like American Express, Boukman Botanical Rum, Bronx Breweries, Kevita Sparkling Beverage, Kola House NYC, Manhattan Beer Distributors, and Celfie Cosmetics, whose generosity provided the support necessary to host the event.
