Marcella states, “I have a grandson living with Angelman Syndrome and after watching an interview given by the Hollywood actor Colin Farrell (whose son has Angelman Syndrome) where he took the opportunity to harness the power of the media to raise awareness. I was encouraged to use the power of fashion industry to raise more awareness.”  FAST (Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics) brings together a multidisciplinary team of more than two-dozen scientists from top research universities and pharmaceutical companies.

Angelman Syndrome has been cured multiple ways in mice, and scientists progression they are making is nothing short of thrilling.  As diverse as our Angelman community is, we are all united in one goal: a better future for our children. FAST is committed to bringing life-changing treatments to clinical trials within two years, but we need your help. The young designers are a part of a movement to cure a rare severe neurological condition called Angelman Syndrome.

Jeannie Mai, television personality, introduces Steven Grossman. She states, “I will never forget New York Fashion Week FW 2013. This is the time when Steven got the news that his son, Graydon, has autism. The challenges for this family included finances, energy, lack of understanding from society, and understanding special needs. Steven posted this news on social media on July 20, 2013. He exposed one of the most challenging roles of a parent’s life. He did not want his family to feel isolated, unsupported or alone. He recognizes that if we all had a little more sympathy and understanding for families we can create a more harmonious future for our kids. A man who puts his wife and kids first.” Grossman provides awareness with conversation and continued support of Autism Speaks.

Grossman discusses the lessons his family learned from Graydon and his diagnosis. He states, “first be kind to each other. 1 in 42 boys does not mean anything to you if your life isn’t profoundly affected. Lesson two I don’t really know what normal or traditional means anymore in our society. In my family, we’ve started living with greater awareness of all the things we take for granted. With my son, we’ve learned to appreciate simple milestones like his willingness to wear his winter coat without a fight. Lesson three I feel compelled to tell you I’m not even the real hero. Those people are the folks from this charity, the doctors, the ABA and OT therapists, like Jane, Nay, and Amanda that work over 40 hours a week with children like my son. As I told Matt Asner, when he asked me to accept this award, personally didn’t think I did enough yet to deserve it. We went back and forth a bit about it, but I finally agreed that I would earn it. I will graciously and humbly accept this award on your behalf. I will continue to earn it.”

Graydon enjoyed the evening and told reporters about his dinosaurs. As the evening came to a close. He enjoyed the blue runway playing with his dinosaurs with his mother by his side.

The evening filled with exceptional fashion on the blue runway. Designers include Guess Kids, David Tupaz, Delia MacPhee, Sivalia Couture, and Ron Tomson. Many designers present designs in blue, the Autism awareness color. Hosts for the evening Molly Sims, and Kevin Frazier.

The ability to be kind and understanding will help those families, children, and many on the autism spectrum have acceptance and compassion.
