Derek Warburton's 'Real' take on Fashion Week
Celeb stylist Derek Warburton has worked with everyone from Beyoncé to Miranda Kerr, but this week he's setting his sights on regular old New Yorkers.
On Thursday night, Warburton -- along with Bottomless Closet, which helps underprivileged women get back on their feet -- is showing designer wares on NYC women at the "Real Fashion, Real Women" show at the Empire Hotel. And it's a cause close to the stylist, who was homeless for a period as a boy.
"These women represent my mother to me," he said. "They are struggling to have a better life for their children, and I want to reward them with love and a little bit of fashion glamour."
Tickets to the show cost $50 to $100 and are available at realfashionrealwomen.eventbrite.com.
