The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation”s (SWCRF) annual ‘Pay It Forward’ fashion industry fundraiser for breast cancer research has grown in its second year, welcoming American luxury house St. John as a corporate supporter.  This American classic design label opened its Fifth Avenue doors on October 7th, 2015 to over 100 in attendance to a live fashion show and cocktail event.  The event was designed to benefit the SWCRF”s breast cancer research programs during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

St. John has taken up the cause this year by drawing attention to and raising funds for the cause. Twenty percent  of the proceeds from sales at the event, and for 10 days thereafter, will be donated in support of the Waxman Foundation”s breast cancer research.  St. John is just one of the notable names in the fashion industry that have lent their support for the SWCRF, which has honored Tadashi Shoji, Betsey Johnson, Nicole Miller and Cushnie et Ochs at their popular fundraising events in the past two years.  On November 12, distinguished menswear designer John Varvatos will be honored at the Waxman Foundation”s 18th annual ‘Collaborating for a Cure’ Gala  benefit at Cipriani Wall Street.ABOUT ST.
