Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.” ~Bill Cunningham
Let’s talk about fashion!
Uptown Fashion Week, New York — What has become the signature multicultural fashion event of New York City, Uptown Fashion Week founded it’s development on providing exposure for established, emerging and upcoming clothing designers from around the world in an effort to extend meaningful fashion trade. Accomplishing this has been an undertaking in nurturing opportunities for the publicity of international talents whose creative abilities are overflowing but financial resources are not. Uptown Fashion Week prides itself on continuing its work throughout the year to build bridges engaging community inclusion by leading events, social activities and diversity initiatives.
The UFW FW16 season this February will expand its interests to bring awareness to the world’s continued fight for human rights.
“We strongly believe that fashion is not just about dresses, shoes and brands, it is about the opportunity for human expression. Fashion can be utilized as a vehicle by which the rights of humans may be embraced, and discrimination may be combated. Improving the awareness, access and conditions of fundamental freedoms is in the best interest of our species as a whole.” Albania Rosario, founder of Uptown Fashion Week.
Uptown fashion week did much soul searching to reveal how they could best contribute to human rights efforts. The idea was developed in hopes of making the most constructive influence possible to something in which we powerfully believed. The answer, they are happy to say, came clear as a bell: To help support and bring awareness on Gender Equality & Women’s Empowerment UNWOMEN’s Planet 50/50 by 2030
