ABOUT FASHION COMMUNITY WEEK
Fashion Community Week is the Global ‘Intersection’ of Fashion in San Francisco,
offering business and marketing platform for Fashion, Beauty and Technology
industries. The organization received an award by Mayor Edwin M. Lee of City of
San Francisco for its commitment towards community and offering legitimate
fashion platform in San Francisco.
Since 2014, Fashion Community Week has represented many San Francisco local
Fashion designers and welcomed designers from Global Fashion Industry. These
global designers have participated from Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, Middle East,
South & North America; mostly coming from under represented backgrounds.
San Francisco is the ‘hub’ of culture thus this city is appropriate to be a launching
pad not only for locals but to welcome global designers, talents and businesses as
This year, the 5-day event will commence with an Opening Ceremony followed by
series of exquisite Fashion Shows representing: Couture, Pret-a-porter, Sustainable,
Emerging and Tech Designs. A Conference with Industry speakers and Showroom
presentations with exotic accessories will also be an optimum part of this event.
Every day there will be Industry networking opportunities followed by outstanding
Celebration Parties all evenings of the event.
Fashion Community Week is deeply passionate about bringing community together and making a difference. Therefore, proceeds from our 5-day event will be donated to a chosen cause for each day of the event.
