As August approaches we are gearing up once again for our annual SUIT UP for EQUALTIY: A Benefit for Human Rights Campaign.  It’s Fashion. It’s Fun. It’s for a great cause. 

We’re elevating our game and the event this year to make sure the experience is truly one of kind – and nothing is being repeated.  New models. New collection. New feel.  Last year we had models walk to new unreleased BLONDIE music.  This year we’re ramping things up with a new upbeat TRON feel.  This year we also have the pleasure of working with the accomplished Natalie Smith who is creating exceptional model choreography.  Models will be wearing new looks unveiled from Artful Gentleman, Cari Borja/Clothesmaker, and Sounthavong.

SPOILER ALERT: We’re using the ENTIRE third floor of the McRoskey Mattress building.  While last year we kept things in a U-shape runway, we’ve torn down the curtains to utilize a complete O-shape runway for longer look time and VIP seating.


Not a VIP? Not a problem.  The views are always great for those not in the VIP sections.  Models walk just a few feet away so you can get an up close and personal feel of the hard work that went in to these new collections.  Still want more? We’re hosting and after party at ALTA restaurant just down the street for more drinks and camaraderie.   

Come join us for a custom experience that you can only get with Artful Gentleman.  Amazing organizations such as Human Rights Campaign, Tito’s Handmade vodka, and McRoskey Mattress Company have teamed together to create a community experience like no other. Purchase tickets here.  Ticket price for the event is credit towards an Artful Gentleman product designed just for you.
