WWD – Fashion Scoops: Prescribing Art

WWD — December 12, 2004

Prescribing ART: fashionistas looking to bring some holiday cheer to their homes from big-name designers while supporting a worthy cause will be at the third annual RxArt Ball at the Emporio Armani store on Madison Avenue Tuesday night. Ornaments from the likes of Giorgio Armani, Zac Posen and Anna Sui are set to be auctioned off, with the proceeds going to RxArt, a not-for-profit organization that helps bring original fine art to healthcare facilities. About 400 people are expected to attend.

Armani’s offering was inspired by the final dress in his spring runway show, which featured 1,700 Swarovski crystals, while Posen crafted a porcelain Pegasus for the Auction.
