Manhattan’s NBA store was the scene of Wednesday evening’s Court-ture ’07 event, presented by GQ magazine and the NBA. It was the perfect setting for the lavish affair, which allowed fashionistas to mingle with sports fans while dining on finger foods and beverages and enjoying the musical stylings of DJ Beverly Bond.
The highlight of the evening was a fashion show featuring menswear from the collections of Rochester Big & Tall and Jared M. Custom Clothing. NBA players, including Walt “Clyde” Frazier, Jared Jeffries, Channing Frye, Antoine Wright, and David Lee, strolled the runway to the delight of celebrity guests, like Carson Kressley. The show featured styles by several designers including Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Bahama, Burberry, and Ermenegildo Zegna. The looks ranged from classically tailored suits to casual athletic wear.
The evening was co-hosted by Access Hollywood correspondent Tony Potts and supermodel Frederique Van Der Wal. Guests received a Jared M. shopping bag filled with a Court-ture ’07 T shirt, various cosmetic goodies and the current issue of GQ magazine.
