Jimmy Choo and DKMS Unite Against Blood Cancer

The luxury brand helps celebrate the gift of life at a special event on Dec. 12

On Dec. 12, iconic luxury brand Jimmy Choo and founder Katharina Harf of DKMS Delete Blood Cancer, the world’s largest bone marrow center gathered 250 guests inside the New Museum‘s panoramic Sky Room to celebrate the gift of life. “When a donor donates stem cells to a patient, it’s really a lifeline, a second chance at life,” Harf says. After losing her mother to leukemia Harf has made it a personal mission to register donors online—all they need to do is submit a simple swab. “When a match happens, it’s a true miracle and just a beautiful thing to celebrate.” 
Clad in Jimmy Choo’s latest designs, guests Marc Jordan, Anastasia Ganias, Kelly Bensimon, Dr. Lisa Airan, Melissa Bent, Cory Bond, Lady Liliana Cavendish, Poppy Delevigne, Karen Duffy and others were invited to sip cocktails and champagne and browse pieces from the label’s new Cruise 13 collection. A portion of sales from the collection will go to benefit DKMS and assist in its mission to connect bone marrow donors with patients in need. 

The entertainment highlight of the evening was when Pop sensation Karmin rocked the crowd by performing five songs, including “Brokenhearted” (the group’s first platinum hit), “I Told You So” and the very song that shot them to fame, a cover of Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now.”
