Coastal Fashion Week is an 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, develop all areas of the local fashion industry, and 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 New York, Dallas, Miami and Atlanta to name a few.
The Gulf Coast's first CFW event broke the barriers of the typical fashion event. Coastal Fashion Week changed the typical fashion week mold and became one of the most cutting-edge and high-style fashion weeks across the coast. Each night consisted of multiple runway shows and closed with a charity presentation like, Coats for a Cause, in which each model walked the runway in a fashionable coat he/she donated to the less fortunate. CFW during NYFW has focused on causes like suicide awareness and prevention, bullying, and domestic violence. We are proud to be opening the door for people to talk about topics that have been taboo.
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 way for our show for CFW to tour with 11 shows in 7 cities and 4 states all in one week! CFW is still the only one week multi state fashion week around.
CFW is proud to be a get developed company to help new & seasoned models, designers, and photographers learn and hone their craft in a fun, positive, safe environment.
