| September 12, 2018 | Parties National

On Wednesday, September 12, 2018, some of the nation's top athletes gathered at the Mercedes-Benz Showroom for the Laureus Sport for Good fashion show, where they walked the runway to raise awareness and crucial funds for disadvantaged youth across the U.S. The evening was hosted by Super Bowl Champion, Pro Football Hall of Famer, co-host of GMA/GMA DAY, NFL on Fox analyst and fashion designer, Michael Strahan and supermodel, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, Karolina Kurkova. Event sponsor Montblanc displayed their newest leather offerings including the #MY4810 Trolley collection as part of a custom backpack wall installation, which served as a canvas for several athletes to leave their mark. The autographed Meisterstück Soft Grain Backpacks will be up for auction with proceeds benefiting Laureus. Before and following the fashion show, guests enjoyed cocktails and light bites, as well as music by DJ Dee Wiz. The evening also included a special music performance by Doug E. Fresh. Additional event sponsors included Mercedes-Benz USA, IWC Schaffhausen, UBS, Cartier, and Collection by Michael Strahan.
