Coinciding with February’s Cancer Prevention Month, the show continued on its mission to raise awareness for men’s health and prostate cancer detection and treatment. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer. Janssen Oncology, part of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, returned as the official healthcare sponsor.

The Blue Jacket Fashion Show included designers such as Thom Browne, Brooks Brothers, Stephen-F, Nicholas Graham, Michael Kors, Bruno Magli, Hugo Boss, and John Varvatos. During the event, actors, TV personalities, models, patient advocates, actors, and athletes walked the runway wearing one-of-a-kind blue jackets.
