2010 Divine Design Gala to honor Kelly Osbourne, Brooks Brothers
Get ready to brandish those checkbooks, bargain-seeking stylish ones! Project Angel Food's annual Divine Design event is getting ready to drop-kick you through the goal posts of another holiday shopping season.
The benefit will be returning to the former Robinsons-May space in Beverly Hills, where it will run Dec. 1-6.
As usual, it will kick off with a first-night gala event, and this year's honorees are Kelly Osbourne (chosen as Divine Design's 2010 woman of style), interior designers Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams (being honored as interior design pioneers) and Brooks Brothers, which is receiving a corporate humanitarian award.
Which makes Black Fleece by Brooks Brothers' spring/summer 2011 collection an appropriate choice for the evening's runway presentation. We're told that fashion designer Thom Browne (who collaborates with Brooks Brothers on the line) will be in attendance as well, and that Brad Goreski (late of "The Rachel Zoe Project") will be introducing the catwalk collection.
To date, the list of designers and labels whose wares are to be available -- at a deep discount and for a good cause -- includes Barbara Tfank, Monique Lhuillier, Perry Ellis, Trina Turk., Marc by Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford.
Tickets for the Dec. 1 opening-night gala, a Dec. 2 VIP cocktail shopping party, as well as general admission to the six-day shopstravaganza (and a coupon worth $10 off admission) can be found by clicking here.
Divine Design, Dec. 1-6, 9900 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills. Hours, ticket prices and additional information available at divinedesign.org.
