From cutting-edge to classic, STYLE 2014 presents the jewelry and textile designs of 45 locally and internationally renowned artists in an exclusive two-day show, sale and benefit. All exhibiting artists were evaluated and selected by STYLE’s founder and curator, Diane Master, and represent the best in independent fashion design.

“We are thrilled to offer fashion lovers such an expansive selection of artisan-made work,” said Master, “and the chance to meet the artists and aid cancer survivorship.”  

Hosted at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation Mountain View Center at 701 El Camino Real, in Mountain View, the STYLE event is on Saturday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is open to the public at an admission price of $10. Ten percent of the event’s proceeds will benefit PAMF’s women’s cancer survivorship programs.

“As a not-for-profit medical foundation, we are extremely grateful to the STYLE artists who are generously donating a portion of their sales to fund our growing survivorship programs,” said Elizabeth Vilardo, M.D., regional president of PAMF.

The goal of the PAMF women’s cancer survivorship program is to offer services for people coping with cancer. Fundamentally, survivorship starts as soon as a patient is diagnosed, and successful treatment means being cancer-free and able to return to a healthy, pain-free lifestyle.  

“There is tremendous synergy between STYLE 2014 and our cancer survivorship programs,” said Karen Harrington, physician director, PAMF Cancer Navigation and Survivorship. “Art and fashion provide uplifting support for women with cancer who often struggle with their return to everyday life.  We want to get women back to what they love to do and to help them feel comfortable, empowered and beautiful.”
