The event promises a host of celebrities and popular faces, including 'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 14 winner Krista White, supermodel Sesilee Lopez, and celebrity stylist/consultant Arnold Milfort, who has worked with the likes of Phillip Lim and Oscar de la Renta.

Details on the designers and their collections have been captured in a must-read online magazine produced by The Gleaner Online. The interactive flipbook magazine can be viewed at with search, zoom and bookmark features.

The coverage continues with The Gleaner Online granting full access to this invitation-only event.
