  • Super Saturday 2014 with Johnny Was

    Super Saturday Logo


    We're excited to announce that Johnny Was will be participating in the first-ever Los Angeles Super Saturday, this Saturday, May 17!


    For the past 20 years, Super Saturday New York has been one of the Hamptons' most anticipated events, and this year the day-long fund raising event has made its way to the West Coast! The event raises money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, a charity that funds cutting-edge research that leads to more effective diagnosis, treatments, and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer. Last year's Super Saturday New York raised over $3.5 million!


    How? Super Saturday is a "designer garage sale", with tons of premier fashion brands (including us!) donating clothing that shoppers are able to buy at deep discounts… what better excuse for dropping some cash on a new summer wardrobe than helping a worthy cause?? Besides designer fashion, you'll also find luxurious home goods, products for pets, and fun activities for kids - for a full list, visit the Super Saturday site here.


    The inaugural Los Angeles Super Saturday will be hosted by boho style icon Rachel Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman, as well as super model Molly Sims and her hubby Scott Stuber. A little celeb spotting while shopping for Johnny Was (at discounted prices!) and at the same time helping fund ovarian cancer research? What's not to love?!
