Joe Mimran, creative director of Joe Fresh, will feature looks from the Joe Fresh collection, which will debut at jcpenney this spring. Mimran is an accomplished clothing and home designer whose influence is found with brands such as Club Monaco and Caban.

Special guest, Mackinlee Waddell, a patient of Children’s Medical Center who received open-heart surgery at the young age of five, will speak at the event. Bringing it all together is “America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru,” Steve Kemble, who will emcee the event, sharing his passion for philanthropy and fashion and encouraging guests to support the Women’s Auxiliary to Children’s Medical Center, Legacy Chapter.
