Since 2014, Saint Louis Fashion Fund has celebrated and promoted our city’s rich fashion history while expanding its impact in the industry. Dedicated to revitalizing the Garment District, the nonprofit supports emerging designers and promotes fashion education and outreach in the community. As it prepares to celebrate a decade of bringing fashion back to St. Louis, the nonprofit is organizing a year-long campaign to spotlight its successes and look toward the future.

Saint Louis Fashion Fund is planning 10 events to celebrate its 10th anniversary. The year-long celebration will spotlight and promote the local fashion industry and its impact on the regional economy, including a presentation and trunk show by American fashion designer Michael Kors and a runway fashion show with St. Louis CITY SC players and young, aspiring soccer stars participating in STL CITY SC’s Futures Program. The fashion events will begin in October and run through 2024, under the banner “10 for the 10th Anniversary.” The Fund unveiled its plans for the fashion series at the Missouri History Museum, which was attended by fashion designers, students and industry-related businesses and community leaders.
