Meets Obsession attended the Arts for Autism Gala, a fundraiser benefiting the Intervention Assistance Fund that provides families with grants to pay for treatments and therapies for their autistic family members.

The night kicked off with a fashion runway show featuring some brave and talented autistic kids who strutted their stuff down the catwalk in outfits from their personal closets.  We were blown away by the vocal pipes of ten-year old, Matthew Cahill, who may have stood three feet tall, but sang “We are the Champions,” by Queen with the same power and resonance of Freddie Mercury.

New York hottie, DJ Kalkutta kept the night young with her fierce beats. And we enjoyed the second runway show that featured the menswear collection of D.C. designer, Andrew Nowell. We can imagine Nowell’s collection of fitted suits in bold plaids and checkers being worn by the likes of Black Eyed Peas artist, will.i.am.

We want to give a special shout out to Gala and Runway Director, Paola M. Quiroz, who put this great event together.
