Lisa Sebastiani and I were so excited to feature our DJ & Electric Violin at “Fashion For A Cause”. Since I am a female DJ you can only imagine how excited I am when I get to DJ fashion shows!! When I DJ’d this event NYC last October, I knew right away I wanted to bring this show to Philadelphia! With the help of three amazing women, Samantha Overstreet of The Hub Conshy, Danielle Pellegrino of Lilly Ryan Event Group, and Erin Crofchick of the Westin Mount Laurel, “Fashion for a Cause” came to Philadelphia! This was a women’s cancer fundraiser to support Rick Galvin, the Carol Galvin Foundation and two families battling cancer. Thank you to Elvira Mary Videography for capturing highlights of the event! (Make sure you check out the photo gallery below!)
The show featured looks by top designers, Elizabeth Delgado, Utopia Armoury, and Dartayna. We also had a special performance by international pop star, Meredith O’Connor, works by Tamara Torres Art, and Magic by Mike Paldino! Thank you to all of our models, stylists and sponsors for donating their time to this awesome cause. Our venue sponsor was the stunning Stratus Rooftop Bar & Lounge in Philadelphia, PA (Thank you Cassandra Welsh!) The awesome team at South Jersey Party Rental and designers at Fabulous Floras set the stage for the perfect show. Thank you to everyone who came out to show their support! – Michelle Lee (aka DeeJay Shelly)
