Social womens group hosts fashion event
on Wednesday,September 01,2010 22:09
In an effort to celebrate fashion, support local economies and assist charities, Girls In Tech - a social network enterprise focused on the empowerment of influential women - is launching Fashion's Night Out. The event will be held at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills this September. Saks will be donating 5 percent of the proceeds from the sales to the non-profit, Dress For Success.
Fashion's Night Out was launched in 2009 by Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and NYC and Company in response to the global economic downturn. This year it's being held during New York Fashion Week with more retailers and over 100 U.S. cities participating. Paris, Milan and London, as well as over 800 destinations around the globe will be hosting the event as well.
"We love the work that Dress for Success does in our community and their Professional Women's Group program which helps disadvantaged women become independent and confident by providing the professional attire and career development tools they need to succeed," said Laurel Kaufman, director of Girls in Tech Los Angeles. "Partnering with [this charity] complements what we do at Girls in Tech, which is to provide a network for women to cultivate their careers in the technology sector."
Those who wish to launch careers in fashion may benefit from attending similar events, or enrolling in an art school design program.
