Aging Gracefully Just Got Even More Fashionable
Serving New York City’s aging community will be all the rage on Monday, November 4, 2019 as the Carter Burden Network (CBN) honors fashion icon, role model, innovator and philanthropist Fern Mallis at its newly named Annual Gala, the Silver and White Night. The fundraising gala, held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, will celebrate CBN’s 48-year commitment to fighting isolation among aging New Yorkers. Members of New York
City’s philanthropic, business, fashion, health care and aging services communities will join forces to honor Mallis’ impressive contributions to the world of fashion and for showing the world how to age with dignity and impact.
A leader in aging services, the Carter Burden Network promotes the well-being of seniors 60 and older through a continuum of services, advocacy, arts and culture, health and wellness, and volunteer programs, all oriented to individual, family and community needs in New York City.
The award-winning creator and organizer of Fashion Week in New York and cities across the globe, Fern Mallis has been an industry game changer in the world of fashion and design for more than 35 years. A former senior vice president of IMG Fashion and executive director of CFDA, she is the author of Fashion Lives: Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis, published by Rizzoli, which features no-holds-barred interviews, combined with never-before-seen personal photographs from interviewees such as Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Betsey Johnson, Polly Mellen, Bruce Weber and more. Her very popular series at NY’s 92Y is now in its 9th year. She is currently the president of her own leading international fashion and design consultancy, Fern Mallis LLC. Fern’s commitment to living her most authentic life and encouraging others to do the same makes her the perfect recipient of CBN’s first annual Silver Star Award.
