On a gorgeous day in Palm Beach, leading ladies and a few gents came together to celebrate Equestrio cover star Hannah Selleck hosting a special charity shopping event at Michelle Farmer Collaborate to benefit the EQUUS Foundation. Hannah wore an original Michelle Farmer designed dress on the cover of the latest issue shot at the International Polo Club, Palm Beach.
Michelle is known for her luxurious jewelry and fashion line as well as for curating a line of up and coming designers from all over the world. With boutiques in Palm Beach, Bridgehampton and the Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach, Michelle offers women and men a chance to step out in unique and stunning designs.
Hannah, daughter of actors Tom Selleck and Jillie Mack, has risen through the ranks of equestrian sport to become a top show jumper, recently winning the Illustrated Properties 1.4 Meter Speed Challenge at the Winter Equestrian Festival, the world’s largest horse show in Wellington, Florida.
Equestrio publisher Alicia Heiniger and US Editor Heather Buchanan were on hand for the festive afternoon of style and sharing. Shannon Coakley, Executive Director of the EQUUS Foundation greeted guests to thank them for their support and share the mission of this important equine organization. The EQUUS Foundation is the only national charitable foundation dedicated solely to ensuring the quality of life of horses and fostering the horse-human bond in the United States. For the EQUUS Foundation, it’s all about how horses move people beyond their boundaries – both in sport and in public service. Event proceeds will help reduce the unwanted horse population, retrain horses for multiple careers, and make equine therapy available to more people.
Heather Buchanan commented on the great group of women gathered, “It’s gratifying to create a story about women who are as tough and talented as they are beautiful. I have so much admiration for Hannah whose discipline and hard work have brought her to the top of the sport. Michelle has shown such passion and dedication to create a successful lifestyle brand and her designs suit Hannah perfectly. She is the fashion fairy godmother we all wished we had. Equestrio is also a female led company committed to be the finest international equestrian luxury lifestyle media brand.”
The afternoon was a win win for the horse… and the clothes horse.
