Fashion Week for the Spring 2010 collections begins September 10 in New York. If you won't make it to the tents at Bryant Park, join your neighbors for a fine fall afternoon on the Marvin roofdeck with exotic seasonal cocktails from Jake Worth, live DJ music, and a preview of artist/designer KEYA's 'Eco Chic' silk collection.
A $10 donation is suggested. In addition, bar sales will benefit Ekta Community Projects, while a portion of proceeds from KEYA sales will benefit green hand skills in India and The Internally Displaced Persons Project in Sri Lanka.
