At an estimated cost of $20 billion, the 'superstorm' Hurricane Sandy devastated large areas of the US East Coast, including swathes of downtown locations in New York City. The CFDA and Vogue have launched Fashion For Sandy Relief, a charity auction aimed at raising money to help rebuild storm-struck homes and businesses.
A massive storm surge caused by Hurricane Sandy hit New York City on October 29, flooding streets, tunnels, cutting power in and around the city, and crippling the transportation system.
