Jeffrey Fashion Cares to Honor Jordan Roth

Jeffrey Fashion Cares, the annual fund-raiser thrown by Jeffrey Kalinsky, will honor Jordan Roth at this year’s benefit.
Now in its 16th year, the annual event will be held on Wednesday, April 10, at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City. The evening aims to raise awareness surrounding the people who live with HIV and AIDS, support LGBTQ youth and challenge discrimination against the LGBTQ community. Over the past 15 years of Jeffrey Fashion Cares’ existence, the event has raised a cumulative $ 6 million to $ 7 million as of 2018.
President of the Jujamcyn Theaters Jordan Roth is slated to receive the Jeffrey Fashion Cares Community Leadership Award. His theaters have been integral in telling queer stories by hosting productions like “Kinky Boots” and “Falsettos.” He also produced “Angels in America,” and received a Tony Award for it.
Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy will emcee. The athlete, who won the silver medal in slopestyle at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, was one of two openly gay American competitors who walked in the Winter Olympics opening ceremony — the other, figure skater Adam Rippon. Kenworthy has yet another connection to the entertainment world: He has a role in the

Jeffrey Scores With Dior Men Pop-up in Atlanta

Kim Jones‘ arrival in March as artistic director of ready-to-wear and accessories at Dior Men energized the luxury brand, just as Super Bowl LIII has energized the city of Atlanta. Jeffrey Kalinsky, founder and president of Jeffrey, on Thursday night capitalized on the fan-favorite brand with a Dior Men pop-up shop at his inaugural store in Atlanta.
“We’re feting Kim’s first collection,” Kalinsky said, citing guests such as Future, Young Thug, Gunna, SouthSide, Wheezy, Phaedra Parks, Lil Van, Bernice Burgos, Brielle and Ariana Biermann. “He’s a major talent and he’s infused so much energy into Dior Men. I don’t know how many hundreds of people were in the store last night. By 7 p.m. we were jamming. Everybody was talking about the traffic for private planes. There wasn’t a place to park.
“It’s just amazing the commerce around the Super Bowl,” Kalinsky said from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, where he was waiting for a flight to Miami, admitting that he may skip the Super Bowl. “It’s been wonderful for fashion in Atlanta. The last time the Super Bowl was in Atlanta 19 years ago and we got wonderful customers from all over the country.”
Kalinsky said that dynamic is magnified today because “you have all the

Jeffrey Fashion Cares Atlanta Raises $800,000 for Area Organizations

MOTHER KNOWS BEST: The 26th annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares event at Phipps Plaza in Atlanta on Monday night raised more than $ 800,000 for Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, the Atlanta AIDS Fund and the Medical University of South Carolina. The tally since the event’s inception: more than $ 15 million raised for the beneficiaries.
Jeffrey Kalinsky, who operates two stores in Manhattan and Atlanta, unveiled a third unit in Palo Alto, Calif., on Wednesday.
“It’s a 12-minute runway show preceded by a live auction, which is preceded by a cocktail hour,” said Kalinsky, who admitted that he’s perfected a formula for keeping the event moving apace. “All that happens before we get seated. We keep the welcome remarks brief so we can get people out of there without having to listen to speeches. The evening is really all about fun and fashion.”
Dries Van Noten, Balenciaga, Dior, Saint Laurent Paris, Céline, Sacai, Givenchy and Calvin Klein were among the designers shown. “We had four looks at the end of the show by a designer, Edda, who’s based in Norway and does these beautiful cotton-printed dresses. We found her at the LVMH Prize showroom,” Kalinsky said. “It’s really a good opportunity to showcase a number of younger designers.

Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2018 to Honor Staff Sgt. Catherine Schmid

Jeffrey Fashion Cares, the annual benefit thrown by Jeffrey Kalinsky set for April 11, will be hosted by Judith Light and honor Staff Sgt. Catherine Schmid.
The event, which features both a silent and live auction, followed by a runway show of men’s fashion, raises money and awareness for HIV/AIDS and supports various LGBT charities. As in the past, this year’s function will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation, Hetrick-Martin Institute and Lambda Legal. It will once again take place at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City.
The evening’s honoree will be Schmid, a 12-year U.S. Army veteran and a key plaintiff in the lawsuit challenging the ban of transgender individuals serving in the military. Schmid was one of five members of the armed services and three hoping to enlist who filed a suit, brought by Lambda Legal, against the Trump administration’s ban on military service by transgender people in August.
Light is a Tony and Emmy winner who most recently appeared on “Transparent” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: An American Crime Story.”

Jeffrey Tweedy’s Labor of Love

Jeffrey Tweedy remembers well the day he got a call from Sean Combs about this new apparel collection he was planning to launch.
Although Tweedy had worked for some of the best-known names in the fashion industry — Ralph Lauren and Hugo Boss among them — he was drawn into the hip-hop artist’s vision and decided to take the plunge.
He was Sean John’s first employee.
Twenty years later, Tweedy is still there. With the exception of a two-year stint from 2005 to 2007 — when he joined G-III as president of its sportswear division, he has been the engine behind the growth of the Sean John business since its inception.
Combs said it best when elevating Tweedy to president in 2012: “Jeff was the first employee of Sean John, and nobody understands our brand DNA better. He’s dreamed further for this brand than I even I have. Without Jeff, there would be no Sean John.”
Tweedy was also at the helm at the end of 2016 when Global Brands Group Holdings Ltd. purchased the majority stake in the brand that today boasts retail sales of over $ 525 million in the U.S.
Looking back at the journey, Tweedy credits Sean John’s longevity with Combs’ willingness to

Jeffrey Rudes to Shutter SoHo Flagship

NEW YORK — Jeffrey Rudes will close his 5,800-square-foot store at 57 Greene Street in SoHo today. The boutique, which opened to much fanfare in July 2015, housed the designer’s luxury men’s wear and was his only freestanding store.
The reason for the closure was to focus on the brand’s “more lucrative” online business and selected wholesale accounts, a spokesman said. He added there were no plans at this time to open other freestanding stores. Rudes sells to Ron Herman in Los Angeles.
Based in Los Angeles with a design atelier in Bologna, Italy, Rudes had staged his men’s wear presentations at the SoHo store three times. In January, Rudes showed his men’s wear collection in a private duplex apartment in Paris, but also showed at the store as part of New York Fashion Week: Men’s.
At the fall 2017 presentation in Paris, Rudes, who designs alongside creative director Lorenzo Marchese, told WWD his aim is to nudge the customer gently forward each season and to offer clothes that are “wearable, approachable and consistent.”
The SoHo store was conceived by Rudes in collaboration with Steed Hale, principal of Steed Hale Interior Design & Co. Among the design elements were a renovated red brick and iron-columned

Jeffrey Dodd Pre-Fall 2017

Jeffrey Dodd didn’t have to look far for inspiration: His first pre-fall lineup took cues from the Jean DuBuffet public art piece “Group of Four Trees” near his home in Lower Manhattan. The loopy, amorphous lines of the 40-foot, black-and-white sculpture, installed in 1971, carried over into Dodd’s collection via curved embroideries and textures. It was easy to see the connection on a slinky, three-quarter sleeve gown hand-embroidered with silver and violet sequins in a camouflage wave pattern.
Tailored silk suiting and separates have been a Dodd signature, but here, an amped up selection of eveningwear showcased his eye for luxe, modernist craftsmanship. For example, a black strapless jumpsuit with a chiffon overlay and a subtle metallic sheen worn under a belted astrakhan fur coat, and blouses covered in tightly stacked sequins that looked like caviar beading.
Dodd is shifting his strategy to release four tight collections per year rather than two. “It’s about doing more deliveries of smaller collections, so there’s this newness factor,” Dodd said. “And I also work better if I don’t get to stop.”

Jeffrey Rudes Prepares New Men’s Collection for Global Ride

Jeffrey Rudes now has a flagship store in Manhattan’s SoHo section for his fledgling brand of luxury men’s wear, but it’s unlikely to remain the sole brick-and-mortar home for it.
Rudes, often cited as one of the patriarchs of the premium denim business for his founding and stewardship of the J Brand, opened his 5,800-square-foot store at 57 Greene Street Thursday after a presentation of his spring collection and opening party on Wednesday night. Even as he and his team struggled with last-minute details for the presentation and opening, he was already open to discussion of what’s next for what, until now, has been a self-financed enterprise.
“We expect to have a global, multichannel retail footprint,” he told WWD, “but first we want to get it right in our store and on our Web site. Would we use franchisees or finance the rollout internally? It’s too soon to say, but if I’m thinking in terms of a global rollout of the brand, I’m not going to be doing it myself.”
Rudes, who stuck to a wholesale, albeit global, model at J Brand, said “there’s been a little buzz created in the wholesale world. But, as with retail, first things first. We’re thinking in

Jeffrey Marsh, Vine Star, Discusses Their Work As An Activist

Editor’s Note: Jeffrey Marsh is open to the use of any pronoun but for the purposes of this profile, we are using “they/them/their.”

You may not know who they are — but you’ve no doubt heard their message.

Jeffrey Marsh is a social media star who utilizes Vine to spread messages of positivity and awareness on a massive digital platform. Their Vines have collectively received more than 90 million views, ultimately providing Marsh with the opportunity to take their message outside of social media and speak and perform all over New York City.

Marsh is most notably known for spearheading the viral hashtags #DontSayThatsSoGay and #NoTimetoHateMyself.

In the technological age, the face of activism has evolved along with the way in which we communicate. Marsh is part of a generation of LGBTQ activists who, through social media, are changing minds and perceptions in parts of the world where people may not encounter a queer person in their day to day lives.

The Huffington Post chatted with Marsh this week about their work as an activist, the way in which they utilize social media and what they have planned for the future.

The Huffington Post: How did you become a Vine star?
Jeffrey Marsh: By accident! I’m doing what I always did: dress up like Julie Andrews, dance around, tell people they’re awesome as heck, sing them songs and (literally) kick up my heels to some catchy Katy Perry.

The only difference now is the camera, the chance to post those moments for gay kids in Arkansas and Canadian moms. No other form of social media I’ve tried allows me to immediately connect like Vine does. It is very much like a face-to-face social experience. Each day I’m shocked and excited to find messages from people who feel like my videos help them to be themselves. I guess I became a “star” by being myself.

When did you realize that things were really heating up and people were starting to take notice?
That’s the funny thing, it was so gradual — so natural. There are plenty of people in social media who burn brightly and fast, who go viral and get (almost) instant fame. For whatever reason, my journey so far has been consistent and incremental. I picture one friend telling another; a grass roots approach to fame.

It would be hard to argue that my message isn’t popular. But is it the most popular? Not by a long shot. I’m reminded of Joan Rivers talking about some advice she once got: if 0.1% of America thinks you’re funny, you’ll fill stadiums for the rest of your life. I’m not sure I will ever fill a stadium, but I think Joan and I are both talking about quality over quantity. This is most true when it comes to cultivating a relationship with the like-minded people who call themselves fans. And I’m happy to say that those fans are all over the figurative (and literal) map: old, young, black, white, trans, bi — you name it! Everybody is welcome and can hopefully connect with my inclusive message.

jeffrey marsh

Did you have a strategy or a plan in the beginning or were you just creating Vines that felt right to you and putting them out in the world?
Did I have a plan? Definitely not! I always knew I wanted to tell as many people (in as many ways as I could) that there is nothing wrong with them. I just started posting things that brought a smile to my face, that helped me feel excited to post again — to connect again.

I don’t like dwelling on the “larger” implications of what I’m doing. There have been hundreds of messages from people who decided not to commit suicide because of my channel, for instance. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad that’s happening! It’s just that all I did was look into my iPhone camera and tell a friend they’re beautiful for being alive. I don’t ever want to lose that connection. Is that simple direct approach a strategy? Maybe it is…

Do you approach your vines differently now than you did at the beginning? What has changed for you?
Maybe part of my success, and the success of Vine overall, is the relatability factor. People can see me; they can look into my eyes, which never happens on Twitter. I’ve shied away from making more polished, “produced” vines because I’m concerned they will lose a personal touch — a humanity that is so essential to one of my missions: showing that LGBTQ folks are just folks. We are all human.

One thing that has changed for me is the recognition of the responsibility I have. I say it in a grandiose way because I don’t think I’m representing just LGBTQ folks. I’ve realized recently that my gender identity is a metaphor. I have the chance to be a voice for many of the voiceless outsiders in the world — the heartbroken people who have felt left out. If my interactions on Vine are any indication, there are a lot of us out there!

What’s it like to see a hashtag campaign you’ve created take off and touch so many people?
It’s ultra-fulfilling and fun. To know that people benefit, to know that people get it and are changed by what I do is a reason to get up in the morning. It’s also a reason to glue on false lashes when I’m a little tired and skim through hate e-mail to answer my followers. #DontSayThatsSoGay and #NoTimetoHateMyself brought out so many different kinds of people; people who would never be in front of a camera, never would be that visible on social media. They felt the message, their participation was that important. And everyone’s participation is that important! It really excites me to see that. Being in front of the camera feels natural for me, but when someone else who might be nervous or shy puts their truth on Vine, it is very inspirational.

If I ever start to have worries about my numbers or how many “likes” I’m getting, I go through those videos from everybody. That’s what’s important: the connection, the changed lives. I often feel like my life has been changed most of all.

When it comes to gender identity and sexual orientation, how would you describe yourself?
I never want anyone to feel bad. Ever. So, I decided a while ago that there is no “wrong way” to refer to me. I know that words and pronouns are really important to a lot of people. I respect that deeply. Several times a week, people ask “what’s your preferred pronoun?” which is nice of them, but I have no idea!

For me, connecting is most important. If someone is being respectful, I don’t care what they use. I’d love to have an interaction with someone who says a pronoun that doesn’t seem true for me at that moment, and we talk about it — we connect over it. Excluded from all this is, of course, is hate speech. I just don’t engage that.

I don’t want to deflect the heart of the question though! Personally, I don’t walk around thinking of myself as “her,” “man,” “they” or any other word we’ve currently got going. I guess that’s part of why I love hearing everybody’s stories on Vine — I can relate to men and women and everyone. When we’re talking about being human and having feelings, there is so much that we have in common.

What’s the one thing you hope people take away from what you’re doing? If you could boil everything down into one message, what would it be?
Always, always, always the message is the same: There Is Nothing Wrong With You. With varying degrees of success I’m sure, I keep it all hovering around that theme. Tweets, Instagram and, of course, my Vines are all an effort to help people ditch the self-hate and self-judgement. What could be more important?

What do you want to accomplish in 2015?
Let’s take over the world! I would be very happy if The Message (see above) could reach more people and bring more of us together. Helping one person is a cause for celebration to me, and I plan to keep celebrating that one-at-a-time connection by Vining my heart out.
