Accessories Council’s Garden Party Raises $$ for Charities

At the Accessories Council Garden party, a Lilly Pulitzer picnic basket benefits the Urban Arts Partnership

New York—Who doesn’t love a fashionable picnic for a good cause?

Feeling the spirit of summer, the Accessories Council hosted a Garden Party during Market Week at the Bryant Park Grill. The Council asked designers to create one-of-a-kind picnic baskets, artfully created and filled with themed merchandise.

Accessories Council members and guests bid on the baskets during a silent auction, and proceeds from each basket went to the charity of each designer’s choice.

The one-of-a-kind picnic baskets and their respective charities were as follows:

  • Echo Design: Echo Foundation
  • Kate Spade: Women for Women
  • Henri Bendel: Pelotonia
  • Bagtrends.com; The Vasculitis Foundation
  • Nine West: GVC/FFANY Shoes on Sale
  • Hair Rules: Action Against Hunger
  • Lilly Pulitzer: Urban Arts Partnership
  • Mary Norton: Nellie’s Catwalk for Kids
  • Rachel Roy: OrphanAid Africa
  • Iman: Clothes off our Back
  • Godiva: The Gibson Foundation
