Dress Passionately

Meghan Mundy, Fashion Week of Rochester visionary, sought a communal fashion event, while simultaneously supporting the programs servicing homeless youth. With a fashionable team, local and regional designers, artists, musicians, boutiques, businesses, and salons were brought together to plan the showcasing of talent, art, design, fashion, and flair. Next, events were birthed: Fashion Exchange; Runways; Galleries; Tastings; Boutique Crawls. Then, venue selection was creatively fashioned to keep ticket prices affordable, preparing an environment of accessible fun. The inaugural fashion event was showcased in 2010. The event week has grown from three to six days of events. Omero's Clothes owners Walter and Matthew Piccone joined the runway in 2012.

The Center for Youth was started by kids, for kids. The focus of Fashion Week has championed services to this Center, like the Crisis Nursery, Emergency Shelter, Street Outreach, Homeless Mother and Baby, New Beginning House for men, ages 16 to 21, to name a few. Fashion Week desires to bring certainty, stability, and safety "home," to youth in need.

Annually, Fashion Week of Rochester has grown in experiential offerings to our community and has continued its commitment to the Center for Youth. Our community has responded with increased enjoyment and financial contributions to these goals.
