Fatigues to Fabulous S/S 2012: Change Comes from Awareness

Partenering with HSN and DKNY, 6 courageous women military veterans shared their heart wrenching stories of trials and survival, and what they've been through post armed forces duties. The south courtyard at the Mercedes Benz fashion week tents was the sight of this amazing presentation. The crowd listened with a heavy heart as each of the 6 ladies told their stories of struggles from watching friends get killed in action to being raped by a fellow soldier, and when they turned to the country they faithfully served for help, they were simply DISMISSED!
Each lady was lovely in their designer ensemble, from Charlotte Ronson (worn by Jennifer Crane), Kardashian Collection for Sears (Christina Dibble), Carmen Marc Valvo (Ann Marie Faison), Bill Blass (Sarah Franson), Calvin Klein (Serena Hayden), and Donna Karan (Meredith Perry Smith).

Along with HSN, DKNY launched a commemorative watch exclusively for the company that can be purchased at
I must have been so enamered by the ladies and was so deeply touched by their stories, that I didn't realize that Vanessa Hudgens was literally 3 feet away from where I stood.
