Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week will kick off on Wednesday, February 6th with a special ribbon cutting ceremony at the amfAR New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street. Celebrities and VIPs will join fashion’s biggest names at the annual gala to raise funds for the fight against HIV/AIDS. The ribbon cutting will mark the official beginning of the week’s activities and usher in another celebration of the best in fashion from around the world.
Ramona Singer will be walking in New York Fashion Week, the fashion show, “The Reality of Fashion; The Reality of AIDS,” which will take place during New York Fashion Week in Manhattan. Ramona will be joined by former co-star and friend, Alex McCord and Aviva Drescher. When I caught up with Ramona, she had this to say about the event, “I can’t wait! I really can’t wait to see Alex, I adore her and I’ll be sticking close to her and staying away from Aviva…just kidding (laughs). I’m happy to be a part of such a great cause and it’s going to be great to spend time with Alex again.”
The Event Lobby will be transformed with numerous upgrades to facilitate a more gracious and productive experience for guests throughout the week.
