Fashion for Action 2011 VIP Opening Party

Fashion for Action 2011 is already turning out to be a huge success. Last night solifestyle attended the VIP opening party, which included special celeb guests, drinking, eating, and of course, shopping - and all for a great cause. 

This year's honorary chair of Fashion for Action is designer Thom Browne, and the co-chairs are actress Patricia Clarkson, designer Rachel Roy and businesswoman and host of Project Accessory, Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti. All of these notable celebs are pictured above, accompanied by the founder and CEO of Housing Works, Charles King (yellow tie). The purpose of the annual event is to raise funds for Housing Works, an amazing organization that helps people dealing with HIV/AIDs and homelessness. And judging by last night, they are in for a big treat. People were shopping till they dropped, and had a blast doing it. Check out some more pics from the party below.
