Our Passion Behind The Fashion

I wanted to take a moment to share a little bit of personal insight into this amazing project that I feel so blessed to be a part of; a project very dear to me and all those involved.

It started as a small idea during a conversation back in May of 2010 with a great friend and fabulous all around lady, Andi Eaton.

The idea was to create an event that could be a platform for fashion designers in New Orleans. Since that conversation, along with the hard work and dedication of our amazing friend and phenomenal PR partner, Lauren Lagarde, our outstanding core team, and so many others, this Saturday, March 2nd, we kick off our 5th Season of NOLA Fashion Week.

The project has grown tremendously, sometimes overwhelmingly so, and we have been blessed to be able to work with and support so many brilliantly talented designers. Additionally, we have been able to the grow the fashion industry in New Orleans and the South through our organization, the NOLA Fashion Council.

The interesting thing that most people don’t know is that close to the entire project is run on volunteer efforts, support from some pretty incredible business partners, and donations from people like you.

If you, or anyone you know, feel so compelled, visit our support page to make a donation or join one of our Supporter Circles to help us defray the cost of the project. Plus, you’ll get to attend all of the fabulous events that start this Saturday!

For a full list of events in this upcoming season, visit nolafw.com/schedule.

Many thanks! Take care, and I hope to see you soon!
