San Francisco Sustainable Fashion Week

Join us for San Francisco Sustainable Fashion Week!

September is finally here! It’s time to pack my bags and cross the Atlantic once again to reach my beloved California. For Annaborgia it’s gonna be a month filled with exciting events. We’ll be starting off participating at Sustainable Fashion Week in San Fransisco for our FIRST EVER runway show on September 18th! It seemed quite an impossible task to organize a catwalk while I was still in Italy but Karen took charge at the model fittings in San Fransisco and kept me up to date making me feel like I was there!

Sustainable Fashion Week will run from Sept. 14th through the 18th hosted by Fashion Community Week, an organization focused on providing a powerful Marketing and Business platform for Fashion, Beauty and Technology industries to showcase their products and services, supporting Local as well as Global Fashion Businesses, Talents and Organizations. Their events are an expression of Community coming together, creating collaborations, network and raising awareness towards major community causes as well.

Every year Fashion Community Week chooses several non-profit organizations to raise awareness by gifting proceeds from the events to benefit these organizations. This year, we’re helping:

Dress for Success, a non profit empowering women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Wardrobe for opportunities, which goal is to help low-income women in Contra Costa and Alameda Counties improve their image and self-esteem by providing them with quality business clothing.

Designing a Difference, set out to create jobs in the San Francisco apparel manufacturing industry, by developing a workforce training center and apparel manufacturer. They aim to train and employ individuals with employment barriers; such as homeless, at-risk youth, veterans, and the mentally and physically disabled and therefore stopping the cycle of homelessness.

Remake, which mission is to build a conscious consumer movement. When we know the stories, we can use our collective voice and shopping dollars to improve and shaper the lives of people who made our clothes.

Faye Inc., an organization offering free after school fashion and art programs to children.
