If you’re in the DMV area, you are probably already familiar with “Fashion Fights Poverty.” Fashion Fights Poverty is a campaign “that celebrates the work of socially responsible designers, and organizations which use fashion, artisanship and creativity to build sustainable economic opportunity in the world’s poorest communities.” This great initiative is the brainchild of the Style Image Network (SIN), a boutique PR firm based out of Washington, D.C. Every fall, they host a fashion show featuring both stateside and international designers (I’ve heard great things), but there are also various events which lead up to the main event.
This Thursday, April 30th, Guess and Teen Vogue are inviting DC’s style mavens to the grand opening of the new Guess store located at 1155 F Street. From 6:30-8:30p, guests will enjoy mini-makeovers by MAC, manicures by Essie, and the opportunity to save while shopping. If you donate $5 to Fashion Fights Poverty, you will receive 20% off your purchases that evening.
Your purchase will also score you a Guess Green reusable tote bag full of products from GUESS, Teen Vogue, M.A.C. Cosmetics, philosophy, ESSIE, Rosebud Perfume Company and more! You must RSVP by Tuesday, April 28th by sending an email to RSVP@teenvogue.com.
You can visit FashionFightsPoverty.org to learn more about the campaign, the events, and the past beneficiaries.
