Today, the organizers of the world's only fashion week from a Christian worldview announced the initial version of its fashion designer lineup for Christian Fashion Week 2015. Eleven designers were listed in the lineup, including two Indian-inspired designers. The showcase, titled 'The Final Season' is slated to be the organization's last show as Christian Fashion Week begins its shift in focus towards activism in the coming year.
"The designers that we have chosen for The Final Season represent a wide spectrum of choices available for men and women who hold modesty as a core value," explained Executive Director, Jose Gomez. "However, what is of more significance is the fact that each brand in our showcase has also paid special attention to environmental and human rights concerns. There is a culture of sustainability as well as social and environmental responsibility that counts for much more than regulating hemlines and cleavage."
Indian-inspired fashion will be taking a more prominent role in Christian Fashion Week 2015 with designers Viji Reddy of Alamwar Textiles and Christian Fashion Week Alumna, Sumita Bhojwani with KalaXpress. Both designers also manufacture their own garments, closely maintaining ethical working conditions for their artisans as well as strict standards for waste management and sustainability.
Other designers include: Aleksandra Salo (Aleksandra Classic Design), alumna Angel Myers (Angel Myers Designs), Constance Franklin (ckfcreate by Constance), alumna Katie Martinez (Elegantees), celebrated Florida-native Essence Flowers (Essence Flower Designs), alumna Medinah Hagan-Morgan (Medi), alumna Vonique Mason-Edwards (Mikra), dance-inspired fashion by Tatjana Sladojvec (Noka Posh), and Kirsten Warner (OnePrize Performance).
The show will be held at The Vault in downtown Tampa, Florida on February 20th. General admission and VIP tickets are available now at www.christianfashionweek.com. Space is limited and sponsorships are still being accepted.
