After the Hurricane those of us in NYC would like to see some semblance of normalcy return. And when the power goes back on downtown we’ll want to get out and about. Fashion for Action fundraiser to benefit Housing Works’ mission to end AIDS in the New York Community is a great place to begin!
The benefit will begin with a ticketed Opening Night Reception .Designer Thom Browne has returned as Honorary Chair with Co-Chairs Dree Hemingway, Patricia Clarkson and Cat Greenleaf. Stylist and casting maven, Natalie Joos will also host an exclusive VIP Hour. Shoppers will have advanced access to over $1 million worth of designer labels from over 250 designers including Marc Jacobs, DVF and Christian Louboutin all sold at up to 70% off retail. There will also be specialty shops by BCBG Max Azaria, Brooks Brothers and a Chanel vintage jewelry trunk show of curated pieces.
A 4-day free public designer sale at out Chelsea Thrift Shop 143 West 17th Street (Between 6th and 7th Avenues) will follow the Opening Night Reception.
Tickets for Opening Night Reception can be bought through the Fashion For Action site.
All proceeds from Fashion for Action will benefit Housing Works lifesaving programs such as job training, medical and legal care, transgender services and counseling for men, women and youth living with or affected by homelessness and HIV/AIDS in New York-a very timely way to get your shopping done this Holiday season!
I love this classic rocker girl look the girls are wearing here! So perfect for the end of summer, don’t you think? Obviously the guy walking by would agree!
I asked Abigail and Emily to share a little more about their Wanderlust ways!
How did you meet?
We met in middle school through a mutual friend, from there the chaos started.
How/why did you start WanderLust?
Growing up together we shared a closet, and when we went to separate universities (worst idea ever) we both had panic attacks, because half our closet was missing. So, we started the blog as a way to update each other on what we would soon share when we reunited after we graduated.
How would you describe it?
WanderLust is definitely a bit edgy and dark, needless to say. It’s now a photo journal of our professional work and creative projects.
What’s the best part of being a blogger in NYC?
New York is the place to be for fashion in the US. So, being a blogger here presents incredible opportunities.

PRIESTESS NYC is the zany avant-garde brand that makes hysterically cool
clothing for a great cause!
CODY ROSS is the cult-proprietor behind PRIESTESS NYC, a unisex fashion
brand that pushes the parameters of artisanal design and champions good
causes. He’s also a stylist, advisor to fashion start-ups and cultural
excavator for i-D, Bullett and China Vogue. Cody recently combined
efforts with video artists BRITTANY KUBAT and CHARLES BILLOT to make a
short but sweet fashion film for the sake of promoting Designers Against
Aids (DAA), a wonderful non-profit charity that seeks to put an end to
HIV/AIDS through education and out-reach programs, especially targeting
youth culture in developed and developing countries. This collaborative
fashion vid is possessed of an avant-garde zeal filled with sassy and
seductive clothing and coaxes every detail—visual, sartorial, sound and
ambience—to perfection. In just under 2 minutes you a get a throttling
vignette with razor sharp synths and pulsating strobe, abrupt tempo
changes and an all-out magnetic mix of unisex gear (styled by Aussie vixen
LISA NGUYEN) boasting dapper proportions, nifty silhouettes and
mesmerizingly sexy models caught up in a flirtatious vortex. The best
part, however, is that PRIESTESS NYC is seeking to make a B-I-G difference
with proceeds from the clothing going toward DAA’s educational arm.
