Fashion Celebration

| May 7, 2013 | Parties

South Coast Plaza’s beloved boutiques joined in celebrating Childhelp’s 27th annual fashion show and luncheon, and much to the delight of the 400 guests, the afternoon (dubbed For the Love of a Child) showcased designs from fashion houses like Versace and St. John. Pam Pharris and Christine Bren served as co-chairwomen of the event, which also shined a spotlight on Erin Runnion, who started The Joyful Child Foundation after the tragic kidnapping of her daughter Samantha. But there was plenty else to celebrate, thanks to Dancing With the Stars’ Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who hosted the affair. And the $280,000 that was netted for the nonprofit was enough to bring everyone to their feet. Photos by Ann Chatillon
