Queer Diversity Shines Through
Queer Fashion Week came to life in April 2015 with its inaugural week that brought together the best names in queer fashion. With the collaboration of Miz Chris of fiveTEN Oakland Events and Fallon Davis of the This is Butch Movement QFW took shape to encompass all the attributes of the fashion, glam, modeling, and political views of the Queer Community.
With over 25 designers, 150 models, and over 75 production staff, Queer Fashion week celebrated fashion and diversity represents a vibrant Bay Area LGBTQ community. Miz Chris recognizes that “Oakland is a very fashion forward town, where walking down the streets is like walking down its own runway filled with an amazing array of personal style.” Oakland will remain home to Queer Fashion Week for yet another year.
This year the 2nd Annual Queer Fashion Week will highlight designers that have been in the biz for years as well as some that are just starting out. The lineup features over 32 designers including Dapper Boi, Rebirth Garments, Tom Boy X, and Size Queen Clothing. The QFW’s vision is to make a space where seasoned and new designers, models, stylists, entertainers, artists, brands, and community organizations can showcase together, network with each other and share with each of their creativity. Make sure to visit the Vendor Village to see over 30 vendors.
In addition to the three runway shows, the conference offers over 15 sessions Wednesday – Friday including Modeling 101 presented by Fallon Davis, a graduate of LIM College, a private, specialized undergraduate and graduate college focused on the business of fashion in Midtown Manhattan.
