Ali Rahimi for Mon Atelier Supports Los Angeles City College Foundation Fall Gala

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) - To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Los Angeles City College (LACC) the Los Angeles City College Foundation Fall Gala will be held on October 9, 2010 at the W Hotel Hollywood, 6250 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, Calif. The event will honor companies and individuals who have exhibited a strong commitment to improving the community and will celebrate the community college. The reception and silent auction will begin at 6 p.m., while the dinner and program will start at 7 p.m.

Mon Atelier continues to support LACC both fiscally and as committee members. "As drastic budget cuts are continuing for institutions of higher education, we understand that private contributions are needed to maintain the level of excellence that Los Angeles City College provides," says designer Ali Rahimi for Mon Atelier.

To help raise funds for the college, Mon Atelier will auction off gift certificates for custom designs created by Rahimi at his salon and other fashion accessories during the silent auction. Some of the accessories Rahimi creates include elegant shoes, beaded evening bags, luxurious shawls, hats, bridal veils and men's custom neckties.

The veteran designer will be dressing the master of ceremonies, actress Melissa Peterman, and musical guest performer, singer-songwriter Jody Watley, for the event. Many celebrities have worn Rahimi's designs, including Jane Lynch who was named "best-dressed" by style critic Steven Cojocaru for her look at the 2010 Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Other celebrities Rahimi has dressed include Anjelica Huston, Marcia Gay Harden, Amy Adams, Mary Hart, Vanessa Williams, Eva Longoria and many others.

Each unique design is made with the finest quality fabrics and materials and demonstrates impeccable attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship that is rarely found today. At the Los Angeles-based Mon Atelier salon, Rahimi and his partner John Barle provide each client with attentive and personal service. Rahimi's couture designs are perfected through multiple fittings and the nearly lost art of hand finishing.
