The Luxury Sale by Capsule promises to be a remarkable event, combining the allure of luxury brands and the opportunity to support cancer research.
Two years after Geoffrey Beene's death in 2004, the Geoffrey Beene Foundation was established in his honor. The mission of the Foundation is to support critical philanthropic causes, the most important being the establishment in 2006 of the Geoffrey Beene Cancer Research Center at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Since its creation in 2006, the Geoffrey Beene Cancer Research Center has served as a nucleus for revolutionary new research approaches in preventing, diagnosing, and treating cancer.
As one of the most awarded fashion designers in American history, Beene's legacy as an American fashion icon continues on today as exhibitions celebrating his work can be found nationwide. His work is being celebrated by the current exhibition MOVE: The Modern Cut of Geoffrey Beene at the Phoenix Art Museum, and an upcoming exhibit at the LSU Textile & Costume Museum.
