In 2012, we debuted our philanthropic wing with our first ever Art + Soul at Double Door on November 17th. On that evening, with the help from our silent auction and generous donations, we raised over $12,000 for the National Association for Down Syndrome, a cause near and dear to our hearts. Rounding out the evening were live musical performances from Scott Lucas and the Married Men, Purple Apple and a fashion show from the Art+Science artistic team. This time, the creative direction was a debut for our newly reformed editorial team, demoing the looks from our Abstract 2012 photoshoot. The runway segments demonstrated our prowess with women’s short hair, editorial styling and men’s grooming.
