Solomon Partners Sponsors Runway of Dreams Gala
Solomon Partners was proud to sponsor the annual Runway of Dreams Fashion Show and Gala for a second year in a row.
The event kicked off New York Fashion Week with a revolutionary evening to celebrate the industry’s inclusivity of people with disabilities. Thirty models with disabilities walked the runway wearing adaptive clothing designs by Tommy Hilfiger, Nike and Target.
Managing Director and co-Head of Solomon Partners’ Global Retail Group Cathy Leonhardt co-chaired the evening, alongside David Bassuk, Managing Director at AlixPartners, Karen Bromley, Principal at The Bromley Group and Andy Graiser, Co-President of A&G Realty Partners.
The Runway of Dreams Foundation is a nonprofit that works toward a future of inclusion, acceptance and opportunity in the fashion industry for people with disabilities. Founded on the basis that clothing is a basic human need, the Runway of Dreams Foundation develops, delivers and supports charitable initiatives to broaden the reach of adaptive clothing and promote the differently-abled community in the fashion industry.
