One Night One Show One Cause: A Special Night with PRS Guitars and the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center

Passion is a beautiful thing. Passion can create change, inspire, help others, and spread beauty.

We believe that when we share our passions with others, truly incredible things are bound to happen.

That’s why we were so thrilled when we were asked to be a part of the One Night One Show One Cause benefit for the second year in a row! This amazing event is put on by PRS Guitars, and brings music, art, fashion, and fun together to raise money for the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. PRS Guitars has been putting on this event for over 15 years, and their passion for the cause is truly inspiring. 

We were tasked with organizing and dressing models for the live auction portion of the evening, during which the models held - and flaunted! - gorgeous customized guitars. In six days, Jill designed and made 7 dresses, we held fittings with all 7 models, we styled each model with accessories, and enlisted a beyond-talented hair and makeup team to bring Jill’s beauty vision to life. It was a whirlwind week, and we couldn’t be happier with how everything came together.

It’s a gift to work with the fabulous teams at the Kimmel Center and PRS Guitars on this event. Their passion to make a difference for a cause so close to our hearts inspires us to no end. Thank you for letting us share our work and be a part of such a special night!

Every dress was made from white silk jersey, a beautiful fabric that moved like water. And we're having a love affair with chain fringe!

After a week of designing and bringing these dresses to life, it was so satisfying to see them all hung up together in our dressing room.
