Our annual retail event brings a touch of fun and glamour to NEXT for AUTISM’s work. Hosted by designer-partners who generously donate up to twenty percent of proceeds to benefit programs for individuals and families living with autism, the event draws members of our community together at a New York City retail venue each year.
Reed Krakoff and jewelry designer Shawn Warren hosted our inaugural Retail Therapy in 2014 at the Reed Krakoff boutique on Madison Avenue. The following year, the event, also cohosted by Ms. Warren, took place at the Alexander McQueen boutique, and was well attended by supporters and fashion lovers alike.
Since 2016, Retail Therapy has been hosted at the chic Upper East Side boutique, Edit NYC, where shoppers browse an array of designer clothing and fine jewelry by Shawn Warren. Smaller retail events have also been held in homes in Greenwich, CT, and Manhattan.
