Rochelle Gores Fredston, ARCADE Boutique and Philanthropic Society Los Angeles (PSLA) have announced they will host The 2nd Annual Autumn Party benefiting Children’s Institute, Inc. (CII) on October 26, 2011 at The London West Hollywood Rooftop.
The evening will begin with a fashion show by famed New York designer Yigal Azrouël, marking his first-ever Los Angeles show. Yigal Azrouël will present his Spring 2012 Collection. The collection combines masculinity and femininity through silhouettes that are simplistic yet architectural. Using lambskin, wool, gabardine and silk chiffon in variations of nude punctured with periodic pops of citrine, mars, and cognac, it evokes a fresh, modern ease. Following the fashion show, guests will enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while listening to music from DJ Myles Hendrik.
A mix of celebrities, industry insiders and LA notables have come together to form the 2011 Event Committee in support of the evening including Alessandra Ambrosio, Eva Amurri, Garcelle Beauvais, Julie Benz, Brent Bolthouse, Steven Cojocaru, Kevin Connolly, Bradley Cooper, Cameron Diaz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Peter Facinelli, Jennie Garth, Lukas Haas, Tod Hallman, John Henson, Natasha Henstridge, Anita Ko, Marc Malkin, Gary Mantoosh, Josie Maran, Maria Menounos, Kimberly Ovitz, Jeremy Piven, Lindsay Price, Gelila Assefa Puck, Alex Rodriguez, Louise Roe, Elisabeth Rohm, Amy Smart, Jordin Sparks, Rumer Willis and Johnny Wujek.
Owner of Melrose fashion destination ARCADE Boutique, Rochelle Gores Fredston started The Autumn Party last year to raise money for Children’s Institute, which helps children who have been affected by violence in their homes or communities. Since 1906, CII has been serving at-risk children and families throughout Los Angeles and today reaches more than 17,000 children and families each year.
To further support CII year round, Rochelle Gores Fredston launched her own charity group, Philanthropic Society Los Angeles (PSLA), to bring together a group of forward-minded young professionals to raise funds and awareness for Children’s Institute, Inc. Additionally, PSLA members work as volunteers and help pool resources to help CII’s various programs.
