amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, first launched its innovative Inspiration series in 2010 to celebrate men’s style and fashion while raising funds for its lifesaving AIDS research programs. Each year has since featured an exquisitely unique design “inspiration” theme and amfAR’s Inspiration Galas have been held in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Toronto, and Miami. To date, Inspiration events have honoured such luminaries as Aileen Getty, Goldie Hawn, HUGO BOSS, Calvin Klein Collection, Jennifer Lopez and Alan Cumming and raised more than $16 million for AIDS research.
The 2014 Inspiration Gala Los Angeles will recognise Tom Ford for both his stunning contributions to the fashion world and his invaluable support in battling the decades-long AIDS crisis. Performer and style icon Rihanna, herself inspired by and inspiration for the designer, has been chosen to present the award. amfAR Chairman Kenneth Cole, philanthropist Aileen Getty and MD of Creative Artists Agency Bryan Lourd will chair the 2014 Gala, alongside Hollywood executive producer Rebecca Wang who is thrilled to be lending her prominent support to such an important cause. They will be joined by the film producer and director J.J. Abrams, actress Katie McGrathand Tom Ford, all acting as Vice Chairs.
Speaking about the event, Ms. Wang enthused, “It gives me a great pleasure to support amfAR’s stunningly creative Inspiration Galas and their impressive fundraising and, by so doing, play a very small part towards the goal of a world without AIDS.”
