Fashionistas Hit the Orpheum for APLA Fundraiser

June 30, 2010

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - Pop icon La Toya Jackson (left) was the first to take the stage at the Orpheum Theatre Sept 16 for "Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama Comes to Los Angeles."

Tickets were in high demand for the annual AIDS Project Los Angeles and Project Angel Food fundraiser, and Broadway was blocked off to accommodate the event.

The event was reconceived this year by Chris March, finalist on Season 4 of Project Runway, and emphasized high fashion and technical prowess, with highlights including an enormous video wall and stunning visual effects.

Featured designers included Tommy Hilfiger, After Party Features Cat Cora, Marcus Samuelsson and Nancy Silverton. A long list of stars was in the audience.

Grammy star Macy Gray and Eric Hutchinson performed, each wowing the crowd, as did So You Think You Can Dance Dancers and America’s Next Top Model runner up Raina Hein.
