JPA Auxiliary Board volunteers and Northbrook Neiman Marcus gave North Shore attendees a fresh look at fall-winter fashions at a Zodiac Room breakfast with “Fashion for a Cause” on Nov. 9. “You’re going to enjoy the fashion show, you really will,” promised Paula Brady of Neiman Marcus, who dazzled in a smart green jacket at this 9 a.m. brunch. And yes, everyone here loved the couture rainbow presented with true color commentary from Abby Zupancic, Neiman Marcus style advisor. “Who doesn’t want to lunch with this lady?” asked Zupancic, as a model in a royal blue print dress and ruby red overcoat stepped into the Zodiac Room. “This is a wonderful dress. This is just absolutely gorgeous on everybody’s height…” An impressive turnout of ticket holders ($75 each) filled the elegant Zodiac Room, enjoying freshly baked puff pastry and coffee as models strolled the walkabout runway in jewel tones, showing casual wear, tailored suits and evening fashions . One hundred percent of ticket proceeds went to the JPA. “The JPA has a very long history of groundbreaking work in the child welfare field,” said Angiela Zielinski, JPA executive director, who impressed in a polished suit. “We were founded in 1901 by social activist and, of course, Nobel Peace Prize winner Jane Addams and her colleagues at Hull House.” Wilmette’s Debbie Van Solkema, JPA Auxiliary Board member noted: “We are all working towards JPA’s mission of breaking the cycle of child abuse and strengthening families.” “Neiman Marcus Northbrook was an incredible partner,” added Van Solkema, who served as “Fashion for a Cause” co-chair. “Everyone at JPA is grateful for their (NM) support and generosity.” JPA Auxiliary Board President Ann Cohn of Glenview thanked everyone for coming out for the event. “This is an amazing organization that does incredible things for kids that need it most,” she said.  Read More
