For this NYFW pop-up event in September 2019, we will be partnering with Spotted Fashion Group, a community and events platform founded in 2018 to showcase every woman’s individual style. The purpose of this event is simple yet powerful: we want to feature confidence as the only label on our runway. With REAL women of all different shapes and sizes, we aspire to create an inclusive environment where they can rock the runway in outfits that suit their personal style. Whether you are a fashion lover, an excited newcomer, or a curious spectator, this event is for all!
Founder of Spotted Fashion Group Jessica Kliwinski shares that, “Style is NOT A 1 size fits all or a particular brand label.” Inspired by Bill Cunningham’s famous quote – “the best fashion show is definitely on the street” – Kliwinski photographs women she meets on the street every day. With each picture, she hopes to promote confidence and inspire all women to feel good in their wardrobe. Spotted Fashion’s ideal of female confidence perfectly aligns with GC4W’s mission to help girls and women feel connected and empowered.
Since both organizers promote giving back, 10% of the event’s proceeds will benefit the GC4W Entrepreneurship Scholarship Fund, ensuring that female entrepreneurs get the financial support and training they need to bring their business ideas to the global marketplace. There will also be vendors & sponsors from SPOTTED to help the attendees celebrate unique style and confidence in different ways.
With the partnership of these two companies, women will be assured that they can feel empowered on the street, at work, and on the runway.
