New York — Sailing Heals, a MA–based nonprofit offering healing sails for those individuals and families facing a serious health setback like cancer, was pleased to host an exquisite evening of “Cocktails & Couture” at a prestigious yacht club in Manhattan.
Despite what 7th Avenue wants you to think, fashion shows don’t just happen during Fashion Week. Maggie Norris, who has dressed Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Aniston, gave a show at a prestigious private yacht club to benefit Sailing Heals. This Massachusetts–based nonprofit offers outings on the sea for people and families facing serious health setbacks including cancer. The evening was dubbed “Cocktails & Couture.” The show featured the work of Norris, whose other clients include Diane Keaton and Naomi Watts and Rene Ruizwho said, “I drew my inspiration from fashions worn by some of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars such as Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, Grace Kelly, Cary Grant and Gary Cooper.” The evening of nautical-inspired daywear walked the runway on professional models, courtesy of TRUE Model Management, and others who have benefited from Sailing Heals modeled evening wear.
