Inside the Party: Hugh Jackman, Kenneth Cole, and Donna Karan Launch Fashion for HaitiApr 12, 2013 @ 4:45 pm
Hugh Jackman and Kenneth Cole joined Donna Karan for cocktails and canapés to celebrate the release of Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts last night, and Jackman was thrilled to throw his support behind the designer (even on the night of his 17th wedding anniversary). “I love Donna’s passion and commitment and persistence for the cause,” Jackman said of the initiative, in which Karan brought together over 160 designers in the Council for American Fashion Designers to decorate papier-mâché hearts. Each heart was on display at the Urban Zen studio in New York City where the event was held, as seen above, and will be auctioned on ebay.com to raise money for the Haitian Artisan Project within Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Foundation, which is dedicated to creating jobs and enhancing education of Haiti’s artisans. “I so believe in philanthropy and commerce,” Karan remarked. “I can’t separate the two. I call them dressing and addressing. Dressing on the outside but addressing on the inside.” Visit ebay.com to preview the collection and place your bids starting April 22—the auction closes May 2.
