While New York wraps up its Fashion Week, DC had it’s own celebration of fashion mixed with a great cause spearheaded by Susan Axelrod, founder of CURE Epilepsy. Mika Brzezinski, of Morning Joe fame brought her great fashion sense and even bigger heart to the J.McLaughlin Clothing store to benefit CURE Epilepsy at the Georgetown shop.
Amongst a colorful display of handbags, sweaters, and dresses, glittering media (the sparkly Mike Allen and Morning Joe’s Louis Burgdorf) and government officials (FLOTUS Chief of Staff Susan Sher) picking up some of the latest trends for fall. A percentage of the proceeds go straight to fund research to find a cure for epilepsy.
Fashion plate Postie Jonathan Capehart bought a nice selection of shirts, and Politico’s Mike Allen got a shirt and tie combo while Quorvis’ Kelly McCormick picked up the perfect little black dress.
CURE board member Gardiner Lapham and her mother were in attendance and J. McLaughlin CEO Steven Siegler charmed the crowd offering wine and cheese and great cheer. Debbie Dingell, Jayni Chase and Marc Adelman, Patrick and Anne Gavin, and other Georgetown socialites chatted with Axelrod as she posed with supporters and friends.
What is more fitting in Georgetown than a parting gift of a Georgetown Cupcake in a blue J. McLaughlin box!
