Princess Grace Foundations' "A Dress To Change The World"

The Princess Grace Foundation hosted “A Dress to Change the World” with designer Jeff Garner of Prophetik on Saturday at a private estate in the Hamptons. The event, sponsored by Dom Pérignon, featured a fashion show by the designer whose collection debuted in Monaco at the Hotel De Paris on September 14th under the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. A silent auction was held for guests which included Grace Kelly dolls among other fabulous offerings. Guests including Dom Pérignon Vice President, Trent Fraser, were greeted upon arrival by a rescue horse named Magic and a model wearing Jeff Garner’s designs from Prophetik. Amy Treitel was the hostess for the event.
