Editors' Pick, Philanthropic Fashion FĂȘte of the Year: Art of Fashion Since it was founded in 1954, The Country Friends has provided nearly $15 million to San Diego County-based charities, primarily through its signature annual event, Art of Fashion. "The Country Friends has presented this stylish fundraiser for nearly seven decades at the historic Inn at Rancho Santa Fe," notes Janean Stripe, the nonprofit's president, of its venerable legacy. Art of Fashion's longstanding place on the calendars of charitably minded fashionistas and its power to generate significant funding for its chosen beneficiaries makes it a cornerstone of San Diego philanthropy, and this year's event held true to its reputation. On September 14, 2023, Art of Fashion featured selections from the fall-winter collections of presenting sponsor South Coast Plaza's leading luxury retailers including Lanvin, Max Mara, Michael Kors Collection, Moncler, Monique Lhuillier (photographed here), Oscar de la Renta, and Saks Fifth Avenue on the runway, followed by a lively lunch, opportunity drawings, and plenty of shopping. thecountryfriends.org, southcoastplaza.com
