Karen Loeffler and Melinda Cooper are in their fourth year co-chairing Fashion Meets Art. Their first three efforts knocked it out of the park, and this year’s event promises to do the same.

 

Happy news!

For the fourth year in a row, Karen Loeffler and Melinda Cooper are co-chairing Fashion Meets Art at the Vero Beach Museum of Art. This time around, the two event planners extraordinaire are rolling out the red carpet for supermodel Kim Alexis, who, since being discovered at age 17, has strolled the runways at fashion shows in New York and Milan for top designers. She has also appeared on over 500 magazine covers worldwide, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Glamour. She was the face of Revlon’s Ultima II brand and fashion editor for “Good Morning America.”

Over the years, Alexis, now a youthful and energetic 60, has enthusiastically embraced the opportunities change has brought her way, and she understands the importance of reimagining, reinventing and remodeling one’s life for what’s next.

And after a year when “what’s next” took the shape of a big fat question mark, when cancellations, postponements and rescheduling became the norm, the good news is that Fashion Meets Art 2021 is a go, and Loeffler and Cooper couldn’t be more excited.

“We’re in for a real treat!” Loeffler exclaims. “Kim will talk about her rise to supermodel status, her favorite designers, and what it was like working with famous fashion photographers like Richard Avedon and creating magazine covers that were considered real ‘works of art’ in their day. She will also talk about beauty as it relates to every woman individually, how fashion has changed over the years, and how to create your own look without being locked into the designer’s vision.”

That’s a huge helping of “happy” that everyone needs, especially now.
