Liederkranz Foundation -Lifeline Benefit
Last night FashionEdits had the honor of attending a benefit at the Liederkranz Foundation hosted by HRH Crown Prince Alexander and Princess Katherine of Serbia and by Lifeline to benefit children effected by last May’s epic flooding in the Balkans. Highlights of the evening included a fashion show of Belgrade-born designer Roksanda Ilicic and a performance by Serbian mezzo-soprano Jadranka Jovanovic, accompanied on piano by Nikola Rackov. Contributing Fashion Editor for L’Uomo Vogue and Vogue Italia Ruchka Bergman made a tearful appeal to help raise funds to aid the flood victims, many of whom are left homeless and orphaned.
Serbian pride and compassion for their countrymen and overwhelming support for the cause from the well-heeled crowd made the evening a success, but more still needs to be done to aid the children. Those interested in contributing to this cause can do so through Lifeline at www.lifelineaid.org.
