WHY:

The Washington, DC Fashion Foundation (DCFF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce (GWFCC) in June 2009 to support the Washington, DC fashion community. The mission is to make Washington a preeminent fashion capital by increasing the business skills and workforce preparedness of fashion entrepreneurs, improving the quality and availability of fashion design education opportunities for youth and adults in the Washington, DC area, and strengthening the connections and networks that form the foundation of the District's fashion community. The Fashion Foundation does this through educational programs, workforce training initiatives, and networking and mentoring opportunities for aspiring fashion professionals and entrepreneurs. The GWFCC Halloween Day Party will help raise funds to support our current programs including The Washington, DC Fashion Incubator, Fashion Programs for the Youth, and the Fashion Development Institute.
