Fight AIDs, Love Life: At Fashion Forward.

The Fashion Forward charity event at the Metropolitan Pavilion on Monday night may have been raising money for a serious cause, but the evening saw a light hearted gathering of fashionistas and notable personalities.

Guests roamed the expansive hall, sipping cocktails and bidding in a silent auction of trendy clothes and fancy vacations. Fresh off the newest season of Project Runway and returning for his fourth gig hosting the fourth year (or “season”, as he called it) of Fashion Forward, Tim Gunn prefaced a fashion show put on by luminaries such as Diane Von Furstenberg, Narciso Rodriguez, and Richard Chai. Gunn and Furstenberg and the like partnered with Bank of America and the Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC) to raise awareness and support for HIV/AIDs awareness.
