MARGHERITA MISSONI & MODELINIA.COM ORPHAN-AID BENEFIT PARTY

Fashion icon Margherita Missoni hosted an ultra-exclusive VIP Party at 1OAK with Arlenis Sosa, Brooklyn Decker, Hilary Rhoda, Joy Bryant, Rachel Roy, and Modelinia.com to benefit Orphan-Aid Africa, a non-profit, non-governmental organization aimed to support orphans and vulnerable children in Ghana.

Guests included Margherita Missoni, Arlenis Sosa, Brooklyn Decker, Hilary Rhoda, Joy Bryant, Rachel Roy, Chanel Iman, Coco Rocha, Doutzen Kroes, Karolina Kurkova, Ali Stephens, Isabeli Fontana, Jessica White, Phillip Lim, Francisco Costa, Julia Resotin Roitfeld, Fabiola Beracasa, Siri Tollerod, Tatiana Santo-Domingo, and Magdalena Frackowiak.

Valextra and Margherita Missoni collaborated to design and launch a personalized passport holder in support of OrphanAid Africa. The passport holder, a gift idea for travellers, will be launched internationally in May 2009 and available online at yoox.com and at select retail outlets with a portion of the revenues given to charity.  

The soiree was held at 1OAK, also known as one of a kind, the brainchild of Jeffrey Jah, Richie Akiva, Scott Sartiano and Ronnie Madra. Lower Chelsea’s sexiest boite offers a one of a kind lounge experience. The open-air lounge, oak lined ceiling and ostrich leather upholstery, all lend to the mysterious vibe of the exclusive lounge.
