NEW YORK, May 5, 2010 / FW/ — Padma Lakshmi looked dazzling in her Roberto Cavalli gown at the MET’s Costume Institute gala Monday night but it is her generous spirit that makes her a true star among women’s eyes.
Padma has partnered with the Endometriosis Foundation of America in support of their fight against the devastating disease that affects millions of women and adolescent girls.
Padma Lakshmi, designer of namesake fine jewelry collection Padma, is also co-founder and board member of the Endometriosis Foundation of America (EFA). Having a personal connection to the disease herself, Padma and the EFA are committed to improving affected lives by early detection and treatment of sufferers ( www.EndoFound.org ).
Beginning May 2010, in conjunction with the EFA’s second annual Blossom Ball, Padma will donate 20% of proceeds from the sales of all Special Edition Jasmine Flower Earrings to the EFA.
