Fashion Brands Assist Sandy Relief: Michael Kors, the CFDA, and Tory Burch Pitch In

Fashion brands are starting to step up their game when it comes to helping the East Coast get back to normal after Hurricane Sandy. Starting off with a $1 million donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund from Michael Kors, these American fashion brands are lending a hand to the recovering region.

In addition to Michael Kors, the CFDA is hosting an industry fundraiser to be held online through Charitybuzz.com. Offering prizes such as weeklong vacations at Tommy Hilfiger’s estate and Diane Von Furstenberg’s Harbor Island home, lunch with Gwyneth Paltrow, US Open tickets, and the chance to attend a fashion show with Anna Wintour and her team, the auction has launched online today with new items up everyday.

Lastly, Tory Burch is hosting a sale at the Metropolitan Pavilion on Friday, offering items from designers such as Marc Jacobs, Valentino, and J. Crew. From which the sales will benefit the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City.

Granted, not everyone can auction off a weeklong vacation at Tommy Hilfiger’s house, but you can volunteer your services to help your fellow New Yorker. Here are 8 places where you can work to do your part in the Hurricane Sandy relief effort.
