LL Cool J at M2
FASHION MOVERS: More than 600 people filled the Meatpacking District hot spot M2 Thursday night to recognize five industry executives on the forefront of the eco-friendly fashion movement. Hosted by Fashion Delivers, the event??™s honorees included Wes Card, chief executive of Jones Apparel Group; Franke Rodriguez, brand director of I/denti/tee; Sally Fowler and Jessica Moment, co-founders of San Francisco boutique Philanthropist; Chlo?© Jo Berman, founder of Girliegirl Army, and eco-minded designer Linda Loudermilk. The altruism particularly touched LL Cool J, who hosted the event, which raised $22,000 for the charity. ???When I heard about this organization being started back in 2005 and them helping people that were suffering in Katrina and everybody that was devastated by that event, I thought it sounded like a really great thing to get involved with,??? he said. The event also drew in designer Rachel Roy, who wore a dress from her new secondary line Rachel Rachel Roy, which is slated to launch with a fall collection in August.
