CFW is an a affiliation of independent fashion designers, models, hair and makeup artists, photographers and philanthropic organizations. CFW, a Christian organization, was created to increase awareness of local charities, encourage development in the area of fashion design and modeling, and to enhance the visibility of the Gulf Coast as a center of Southern fashion as well as focusing on other parts of the United States including NYFW, Dallas and Atlanta to name a few.
The Gulf Coast's first CFW event broke the barriers of the typical fashion weeks. With the addition of Coastal Kids+Teen Fashion Week Night and New Orleans added to the tour in 2014, Coastal Fashion Week changed the typical fashion week mold and became on of the most cutting-edge and high-style fashion weeks across the coast. Each night consisted of multiple runway shows and a close with a charity presentation Coats for a Cause, in which each model walked the runway in a fashionable coat he/she donated to the less fortunate in each city.
We were thrilled that we were able to take the Coastal Fashion Week show to NEW YORK FASHION WEEK and are casting now for NYFW 2020!!! Bringing CFW to the Big Apple was the next step and with GOD behind us it was amazing. I can't thank you all enough for your overwhelming support over the past several years and you all made this possible.
Exalte' Magazine has one mission, to bring together Fashion + Philanthropy and we are hitting the road with CFW's Movement show in Atlanta and Dallas this year as well as a brand new line up for Coastal Fashion Week Winter 2020!!
After years of fashion events, the launch of Coastal Fashion Week was one of the most anticipated events of 2013 and was SOLD out in every state. The overwhelming success of our debut year was truly a Blessing and paved the wave for our show for CFW to tour with 11 shows in 7 cities and 4 tates all in one week!
We hope that you will continue to join us at Coastal Fashion Week!
