Lilyana Eisele tells The Rickie Report, “We are founding a Fashion District to create jobs, improve our communities and increase education. The proceeds from this fundraiser are part of these ongoing efforts. The fashion and apparel industry is a $3,000 trillion industry worldwide and the U.S. imports 97% of its fashion and apparel for retail. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics,  98 other occupations depend on the Fashion & Apparel industry for employment. Small changes can have a huge impact”.




This fundraiser is in conjunction with the production of Palm Beach Swim Week’s fashion shows. This Absolute Auction means everything will be sold to the highest bidder. 


In person, phone and email bids are welcome.

Even show producer, Lilyana Eisele, was interviewed and published in Everybody Magazine. When it comes to bringing fashion to Palm Beach she was hailed by the magazine editor as “the matriarch of it all.” The article further cites the Palm Beaches as one of the most beautiful and fashionable places on Earth.



Lilyana tells us, “Some designers have more than doubled their business size and expanded production by 150%. Many of the designers are Florida based and also produce their lines in Florida. In addition, the materials to create the line are often bought from Florida businesses. This supports other businesses and also creates jobs which support our communities”.

Over 100 fashion designers have applied to be in the shows and many have specifically designed their clothing line to be featured in the style and spirit of the Palm Beaches. Last year Fusion Fashion & Art produced the largest fashion week in the state of Florida under one roof.
