On Saturday, March 11th, the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation of the Cayman Islands held their inaugural event: Pretty on the Outside at the National Gallery. This spectacular event consisted of a fashion show, featuring the handbags and clutches created by Louise & Eleanor, and modelled by the Miss Cayman Islands 2017 contestants. Alyssa Christian, chairman of the foundation, along with Louise & Eleanor, created a clutch specifically for MS, The Hope Bag. This special bag was launched at the end of the fashion show.

While MS effects more women than men, the men were included in this amazing event as well. Working alongside Barry Beaux, a bow tie was created to match The Hope Bag. Following the fashion show, there was a silent auction of the bags and bowties, along with a variety of other auction items. It was a night to remember!

Why Pretty on the Outside?

“Most of the time, you are not able to spot a person with MS. MS is known as an invisible disease. Although most patients look “good” on the outside; the inside of their bodies are a disaster and are a battle field.

Now think about a woman’s handbag. We women are always admiring others’ handbags with envy; but just like a person with MS, from the outside they look immaculate, but once you open them up…it is a force to be reckoned with!” – MS Foundation of the Cayman Islands
