The Art of Fashion was presented by The Country Friends in partnership with the renowned shopping destination, South Coast Plaza. This all-outdoor event was presented on Sept. 16 at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. The crowd was very enthusiastic because it had been two years since they last met. The morning began with a Nani Pua Champagne reception, boutique shopping, and informal modeling to whet everyone’s appetite for the upcoming fashion show.

The fashion show began with a runway under a gigantic canopy tent. South Coast Plaza brought fall fashions from top international designers. Lanvin was first on the runway showing denim and navy fashions. Max Mara showed off teddy bear coats and jackets. Clothing by Isabel Marant presented beautiful embroidery work to the audience.

Stella McCartney brought a bright green turtleneck with recycled nylon and a Naomi Wool Skirt down the runway. She showed a popcorn hooded sweater and skirt made from sustainable viscose. One of the standouts was the over-the-knee Duck City Glitter Boots.

Camilla prints are hand-drawn and painted designs by artists in Sydney. Beautiful dresses came down the runway showing off these prints. One of Versace’s presentations was a logo sweatshirt dress and of course one of their safety pin silk evening dresses.

A highlight from Saks Fifth Avenue was a Liza Caftan made with pleated metallic silk for the Halston X Netflix Collection. Oscar de la Renta updated their dresses with the pressed flower motif. They also showed a must-have lurex tweed chiffon dress.

Monique Lhuillier was the finale on the catwalk with a one-sleeve Jersey Gown in a sangria color and then concluding with a glitter Tulle strapless cocktail dress in a blush color, which was covered by a Glitter Tulle Cape.

After the fashion show, all the guests adjourned to a luncheon on the lawn at The Inn. The honorary chairs were Deborah and Les Cross for their commitment to the organization. Deborah Cross co-chaired the event with TCF president Suzanne M. Newman and director of operations Yvette Letourneau. Award-winning ABC 10News anchor Kimberly Hunt was the emcee of the event.

The Inn’s culinary team headed by executive chef Jessie Lee Williams served everyone on The Lawn. The dessert was prepared by pastry chef Elizabeth Woesle. The crowd enjoyed an exciting live auction including a $15,790 nine-day adventure through Peru. While the guests were dining they also had an opportunity to draw from South Coast Plaza retailers including a $2,000 gift certificate from Monique Lhuillier. The afternoon finished with shop, sip, and support.

Country Friends is a nonprofit formed to provide funding to San Diego County-based charities. The Country Friends have been “Helping San Diegans since 1954: One Hand at a Time” and has donated $14 million to date to support human care agencies.
