On November 19, Azadeh Couture staged a lovely, private reception and shopping event benefiting the American Red Cross Bay Area and the victims of Superstorm Sandy. The evening also brought awareness to the nonprofit organization's Hope by Design Gala, coming up on April 6.

Founder and designer Azadeh Riaz welcomed a stylish crowd with much-coveted fashions for the cultured set, mingling with gorgeous models dressed in an array of looks. Guests included Board and Committee Members Gwyneth Borden, Roberta Economidis, Catherine Kwong, and Ye-Hui Lu.
