The third annual Blue Jacket Fashion Show was held last night, February 7, 2019, at Pier59 Studios as part of CFDA's New York Men's Fashion Week. The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson partnered with the Blue Jacket Fashion Show along with Accuray, Men's Health magazine, and with the support of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), to benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF).
The Blue Jacket Fashion Show brings together the fashion, entertainment, healthcare, and media worlds around a national platform to openly discuss men's cancer issues, with an emphasis on prostate cancer. Coinciding with February's Cancer Prevention Month and New York Men's Fashion Week, the Blue Jacket Fashion Show included designers who used their creative talents to "reinvent" the traditional blue blazer.
Those walking the runway wearing one-of-a-kind blue jackets included models, actors, and TV personalities. Comedian Judy Gold returned for the second year as the emcee for the evening and models included Drake Bell, Billy Porter, Nigel Barker, Ryan Eggold, Buster Skrine, Dr. Mike, Alex Lundqvist, Jerod Haynes, Mario Cantone, Dominic Fumusa, Harry Lennix, Simon Doonan, Jeremy Carver, Edwin Hodge, Steven Kolb, Brian Mazza, Kenneth Ferrer, Demin Borgers, Moti, Tim Taylor, Richard Greene, Nik Dodani, Jacob Thomas, Sean Fraizer, Leo Chan, Mercel Floruss, and Lee Tergesen. Countess Luann and Sonja Morgan of Bravo's Housewives of New York, also walked in the show, being the first women to walk the runway in support of the cause.
