Rain Check

| April 8, 2014 | Parties

The Party
A downpour drove the party indoors but couldn’t dampen spirits when fashionistas gathered at Kalpana and Jamie Rhodes’ La Jolla home for an exclusive Zang Toi trunk show benefiting UNICEF’s Eliminate Project.

The Players
During fashion week, Toi opened his ethereal spring 2014 Ballet Babe show with a performance by ABT principal dancer Cory Stearns. But the Malaysian designer barely batted an eye when co-chairs Yolanda Walther-Meade; Kalpana; and her sister-in-law, Carrie Rhodes, sent gown-wearing models down an impromptu kitchen catwalk. What a sport!

The Scene
Toi introduced his spring line, then worked the rolling racks in the dining room as the ladies shopped for the cause, raising funds to forever eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. –Photography by Tim Hardy,
