Neiman Marcus presented the 10th annual Flair for Care fashion show and luncheon featuring the Roberto Cavalli Fall 2009 Collection on May 21 at Wynn’s Lafite Ballroom. All of the event’s proceeds benefit Southern Nevada’s Nathan Adelson Hospice.

The 525 guests were seated for lunch at tables covered in apricot pleated silk with centerpieces of goldenrod florals in black pottery baskets. Lovee Arum chose the fare of a duo of chilled soups, chicken salad and raspberry and chocolate Napoleon with yogurt.
Susan Molasky welcomed all and introduced Bill Terry, vice president and general manager of Neiman Marcus Las Vegas. Terry introduced the fashions, and 20 of Cavalli’s fall designs floated down the runway.
At the show’s conclusion, Irwin Molasky spoke about Nathan Adelson Hospice and its 31 years of caring for ill patients.
