A history of the fashion and beauty industries collaborating for a cure

The fashion and beauty industries have been a longtime partner of the SWCRF. From hosting fashion show benefits to partnering together on cause marketing initiatives and from top fashion designers hosting in-store events commemorating World Cancer Day to the iconic, late Ruth Finley’s membership of our Chairman’s Council, our friends in the fashion and beauty industries have helped to raise substantial support for cancer research.

The SWCRF Collaborating for a Cure Luncheon is our signature event and is held annually in the spring. New York City luminaries, Lauren Lawrence, Pamela Morgan, and Marion Waxman chair the event along with co-chair, Erica Linden-Fineberg.  Held in a private location, the luncheon features an exclusive fashion show from a top designer’s fall collection. Designers who have had their fashion walk the SWCRF runway in the past include Nicole Miller, St. John, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, and Jason Wu. Celebrated designer Dennis Basso will present selects from his fall fashion at the 2019 Collaborating for a Cure Luncheon Click here to learn more.
