Jean Shafiroff And Narciso Rodriguez


As a volunteer fundraiser, leader, and spokesperson for several charitable causes, philanthropist Jean Shafiroff shares the sentiment that Narciso Rodriguez is truly deserving of the 2018 Artistry of Fashion award. There is a correlation between Shafiroffs committment to female empowerment and Rodriguez’s empowering fashion designs. He designs clothing for women to make them feel strong and beautiful whether it be a power lunch, a boardroom meeting or to stand equally alongside a man in a suit. As a powerful women, philanthropist, volunteer fundraiser and chairwoman for notable causes, Jean found his designs and the message they uphold noble. Jean, herself, is a connoisseur of timeless style and elegant gala fashion supporting up-and-coming as well as established fashion designers.
