This collection was designed by Kenneth Cole, in conjunction with Kinky Boots costume designer, Gregg Barnes, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Cole's own AWEARNESS, an organization in support of the HRC. Among the three boots in this collection, Cole has recreated the recognizable red high-heeled pumps from the opening scene of the play. Two versions of knee-high boot in either black patent or black & white leopard print will also be available. Kinky Boots by Kenneth Cole will be emblazoned on the heel of every shoe in this collection.
From standing on the red carpet to standing up for a cause, not only has Kenneth Cole been a successful designer in the fashion industry, he has used his fame and fortune to make a difference in the world.
For years, Cole has striven to bring AIDS relief efforts into public awareness in order to enact real change. Committed to finding a cure for AIDS, Cole joined the board of directors at amfAR in 1987 and is now chairman of the board for the organization. AmfAR is the world’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to ending the global AIDS epidemic through innovative research. Since 1985, amfAR has invested more than $340 million toward its goals and research, and the organization has awarded more than 2,000 grants to research teams worldwide.

Local artists, photographers, designers and musicians swarmed the Lily Pad in Cambridge last Sunday night to celebrate the launch of a new Boston-based online collaborative arts magazine called Spirited. Boston dandy Mitch Hampton entertained on piano while guests sipped Bols Genever punch and Pretty Things beer, and visiting musicians Faux Fix from New Haven were in attendance to play some new material. There was much fabulous fashion to be had and I narrowed in on three guests I thought had amazing style.
