The lingerie event of the year recently occurred when the Seven Bar Foundation hosted Lingerie New York 2010 at Cipriani 42nd Street. The event, which raised $500,000 for philanthropic causes, featured the works of Carine Gilson and Atsuko Kudo in a spectacular runway show. Carine Gilson was celebrating the 20th anniversary of her eponymous luxury lingerie label with her signature silk and lace designs. She unveiled her latest collection that included a few shimmery ivory pieces that we are eager to see more of. Also featured was the work of Japanese couture latex lingerie designer Atsuko Kudo. Model Veronica Webb modeled the buzz-worthy Space Lace illuminated LED-light corset designed by Dara Young for the Hennessy Black Moment of the show. Other models at the event included Elsa Benitez, Crystal Renn, and Liya Kebede.
We hear that perhaps the next Seven Bar lingerie/charity event will take place in Los Angeles, and we will certainly make sure to be in attendance!
If you are unfamiliar with the Seven Bar Foundation, it is a charitable organization that offers microfinancing to women in underprivileged countries. You can learn more about their cause here.
