Two local charities--Cystic Fibrosis and the John Wayne Cancer Clinic--will reap proceeds in November when French designer Pierre Cardin flies in from Paris to present his fall holiday couture collection. The CF invitational gala dinner dance hosted by the Broadway is Nov. 17 at the Broadway Beverly Center. Cardin's fashion show charity brunch for the Wayne Clinic will be Nov. 19 at the new South Coast Plaza Broadway (opening Friday) and is headed by four co-chairmen: Barbara Harris, Melinda Wayne Munoz, Florence Tande and Maureen Womack. Cardin's enterprises, such as Maxim's restaurants and hotels from Palm Springs to Peking, have made him special even beyond his important haute couture.
