The latest looks from the fall/winter collections of South Coast Plaza’s leading luxury retailers will be showcased when The Country Friends presents the Art of Fashion Runway Show and Luncheon on September 20. The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe once again serves as the historic venue for this elegant annual homage to fall, fashion, and fundraising benefiting San Diego County-based charities. This year’s event, chaired by Tamara Lafarga-Joseph and Sarah Sleeper, honors Maggie Bobileff, a longtime member of The Country Friends Board of Directors. NBC-7 newscasters Catherine Garcia and Mark Mullen will serve as emcees. Here, we highlight designs from Escada, Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Stella McCartney, with jewelry by John Matty Co., shot on location at Sergott Contemporary Art Alliance in Rancho Santa Fe.

The Country Friends is a nonprofit organization, formed 64 years ago with a mission to “help San Diegans, one hand at a time” by supporting human care agencies with emphasis on services for women, children, the elderly, and those with disabilities.
