To promote the annual GMHC Fashion Forward fundraiser event, 11 models including Crystal Renn, Andrej Pejic, Lea T, Jenny Shimizu, Hanne Gabby Odiele and Sky Ferreira shot a full commercial at Milk Studios in August and we have the 60-second teaser! The full video will air on ABC-7 starting the week of the 23rd and will run for several weeks.
Fashion Forward is an annual event held in New York to benefit the Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC). Over the past few years, the fundraiser, which includes a fully staged runway show, has gotten tons of support from the fashion industry, with participants like Diane Von Furstenberg, Anna Sui, Betsey Johnson, Rag & Bone, Peter Som, John Varvatos and Tim Gunn, who hosted last year’s event. This year, Brad Goreski will do the honors alongside Tracee Ellis Ross at the Metropolitan Pavilion on November 17. Confirmed designers include Chris Benz, Thom Browne (whose clothes are all over this video), Marlon Gobel, Sally LaPointe, Zang Toi, Timo Weiland and VPL. For tickets and to learn more, click here!
