Elaine Turner will launch her fall 2012 collection with a soiree benefitting the Friends of the Stehlin Foundation. Gearing up for their 32nd annual gala in November, the cancer-fighting organization will celebrate the upcoming event while also being the first to see the designer’s preppy-chic handbags and shoes.
Elaine Turner calls on 1970s trendsetter Ali MacGraw and New England destinations Wellesley, Radcliffe, and Cambridge to create her most sophisticated collection yet. The fall line boasts a plethora of fabrics new to the brand. Textiles such as hounds tooth, tweed, optic calf hair, and patent leathers embellish the designs of this season’s satchels, cross bodies, bowler bags, totes, clutches and hobos.
Friends of the Stehlin Foundation will enjoy tasty treats and sips donated by The Tasting Room while shopping the new collection. A portion of proceeds from event sales will benefit Stehlin’s mission to support cancer research, treatment and educational programs. The Tasting Room will continue their donation by offering 10 percent back to the Stehlin Foundation for any guest who joins them for dinner or drinks after the event.

“Dr. Stehlin has been right about cancer for more than 40 years . . . He achieved his remarkable success by carefully observing the behavior of cancer. He found order where others had only seen chaos. He found rules where others said there were no rules. And he spared hundreds of patients the disfiguring consequences of radical surgery.”
Dr. Richard Evans,
General Surgeon, 2007
