Pier 17 will be lit teal on the evening of September 27 for Super September and in honor of ovarian cancer awareness month.

And, downtown at Alice + Olivia a very special shopping benefit will take place for Publicolor. From 6 to 9pm the evening of fashion and cocktails will benefit a fantastic cause. Publicolor fights poverty by aggressively addressing the alarming dropout rate and low levels of educational attainment and youth employment in New York City. They do this by engaging high- risk students, ages 12-24, in a long-term continuum of intensive, multi-day, design-based programs to encourage academic achievement, community service, college preparation and job readiness. Their unique applied learning approach uses design and design thinking as vehicles to engage, stimulate and inspire at-risk, low-performing students in our city’s struggling middle and high schools, empowering them to achieve success in school, college, career and life.

On, Fifth Avenue, IVY x Tommy Hilfiger Icons will celebrate the Fall 2018 TOMMYNOW Runway Show at Tommy’s flagship location.  The invitation only group will have TOMMYXLEWIS, well as the new HILFIGER COLLECTION and TOMMY ICONS collections – all fresh off the runway show that took Shanghai by storm this month.  A DJ will bring the beats, there will be passed hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer and prosecco.

A Beautiful Perspective (ABP), the emerging multimedia brand that produces thought-provoking digital content and socially conscious events, will unveil a new series of live events titled Activist Mornings, with the inaugural event taking place September 28 at New York University’s Skirball Center.
