Survivor chic takes to the runway

On November 13, the Maimonides Breast Cancer Center upheld its mission of “leading the charge against breast cancer in Brooklyn,” and this time, did it in Vince Camuto heels!

This year’s Maimonides Pink Runway Fashion Show, a fun fundraiser for the center, was a huge success, according to Maimonides Medical Center Director of Public Relations Jodi Cross.

Featuring Maimonides President and CEO Pam Brier, and Director of the Breast Center Dr. Patrick Borgen, as featured speakers, this event was particularly special because the models who strutted their stuff in the fashion show were breast cancer survivors and doctors.

The fashions themselves were befitting of fierce warrior women, with Amarcord’s high-fashion vintage designs, Lucy Gabby’s hats and Sriya Karumanchi’s Catbird line all represented, among others. Ally Love, host and entertainer for the Brooklyn Nets, was the MC and host for the evening.

“This was a night for us to celebrate our breast cancer survivors and the team of breast experts that guided them through their treatment,” said Borgen. “Bringing awareness to the rest of Brooklyn was an added bonus.”
