Last year’s Greek American Fashion Show was so inspired that this year, they’re putting on an entire WEEK for Fashion Week:
The Greek America Foundation is hosting “Greek American Fashion Week” September 4-8, 2013 with events taking place throughout New York City. The week culminates in a Greek American Runway Show at Studio450 and after party at Meli Restaurant on September 6, 2013.
Greek American Fashion Week events include “Greek Fashion’s Night Out” and multiple cocktail hours at venues such as Anassa Taverna. At the main runway event, guests will be dazzled by cutting-edge fashion designs with Greek and American entertainment, a high-end silent auction and gift bags to cap off the evening. All events showcase emerging and established North American fashion designers of Greek descent in an effort to help them forge relationships with those in the fashion industry, assisting them with advancement of their careers.
In addition, renowned menswear designer John Varvatos will be honored with an award for his exceptional contribution to the fashion industry.
A host of supporters and friends will be on hand for the weekend events, including several prominent members from the fashion and retail industry as well as celebrity fashion bloggers.
Proceeds from this program will benefit the programs of the Greek America Foundation, with a particular focus on the creation of a scholarship for a student pursuing fashion design. The Greek America Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, preserving and perpetuating the Greek culture, history and heritage in North America.
Tickets will go on sale August 12, available for purchase from the Greek America Foundation’s website (www.greekamerica.org).
