Fashion for a Good Cause

Gay Men’s Health Crisis, the Chelsea-based nonprofit that provides lifesaving services for men and women living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, held its third annual Fashion Forward gala on Mon., Nov. 16, to salute the fashion industry’s commitment to the cause.

Hosted by style consultant and “Project Runway” star Tim Gunn, the night included a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a runway show presented by Saks Fifth Avenue and featuring designs by Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs.

Proceeds from the event, held at the Metropolitan Pavilion on W. 18th St., went to support GMHC’s mission of providing prevention and care services to more than 15,000 New Yorkers affected by the disease.
