Fashion for a Cure
Fashion and prostate cancer might not seem like they belong in the same sentence, but we’ll explain how they actually do.
For the last three years, the Blue Jacket Fashion Show has brought together designers, celebrities, athletes, entertainers and media icons to raise awareness and funding for prostate cancer research. Esteemed designers John Varvatos, Michael Kors, and Thom Browne are just a few of the designers that will be showcasing their custom interpretations of the classic blue jacket.
As the only New York Fashion Week-sponsored non-profit event, the night is all about empowering men to look and feel good. Dr. Mike, Bill Nye, Mario Cantone, Dr. Oz, and Nigel Barker are just a few of the celebrities who hit the runway in last year’s Blue Jacket Fashion Show. Watch above to see some of the highlights.
But it isn’t all about high-end designers and brushing shoulders with celebrity A-listers. The blue jacket is symbolic of what it means to support men with prostate cancer. Not only is blue the universal color for prostate cancer awareness, it’s also ubiquitous with the demographic that is at risk of prostate cancer. The blue suit is the everyman’s suit, and every man is at risk of prostate cancer (at least for now). However, events like the Blue Jacket Fashion Show are the reason more men are surviving prostate cancer than ever before.
The 2019 Blue Jacket Fashion Show will take place on Thursday, February 7th, and promises to be our most exciting runway yet. In partnership with Johnson & Johnson, proceeds from the Blue Jacket Fashion Show will benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
