Despite the pouring rain and an SUV queue running six cars deep(!), the worlds of fashion and philanthropy managed to join forces last night at a private Ferragamo shopping event benefitting New Yorkers for Children. Hosted by Chiara Ferragamo, Maggie Betts and W magazine’s own Karla M. Martinez, the fete opened the Ferragamo shop to some charitable, after-hours spending and a presentation of the designer’s 2011 Resort collection.

W Senior Fashion Market Editor, Carolyn Tate Angel styled ten mannequins in looks from the line, which features stripy dresses, bursts of white and a singular black tuxedo (Angel’s favorite). The room buzzed with excitement in spite of the downpour, proving to all involved that one’s affection for Ferragamo can trump even the most inclement weather.
