FashNet was founded in 2015 in Berlin as a Non-Profit organization with the mission of encouraging and supporting up and rising Fashion Artists to expose their creative talents and gain more visibility in the fashion industry. In the fashNet terminology, a Fashion Artist is any individual who relies on his/her creativity to provide fashion oriented products and/or services in the fashion industry. This could be a fashion designer, Hair Stylist, Make-Up Artist, Wardrobe Stylist, Fashion Model, Fashion forward Photographer, fashion blogger, etc.
In an ever changing, fast-paced fashion industry, exposure is essential. For most aspiring fashion designers, hairstylists, make-up artists and models, success in the industry is determined primarily by the level of exposure and visibility. Recognizing this need, the mission of FashNet is to:
- encourage COLLABORATION between fashion artists and participants, enabling them to discover synergies and build lasting partnerships
- support emerging Fashion Artists to gain EXPOSURE and visibility to their products and services while learning from seasoned artists by setting up a high-end fashion show with great entertainment factor
- encourage fashion artists who are emerging as true creative forces in fashion and entertainment in their communities by RECOGNIZING them with the FashNet Awards
- raise awareness and funds for a good cause by partnering with “Keeps Boutique at The Gatehouse” a nonprofit that aims to provide new clothing to women and children in crisis who are discovering new paths for permanent change
- provide an exclusive fashion networking platform for young talents and emerging fashion artists to expose their products and services
- give small businesses an opportunity to promote their businesses to a target audience
- make an impact in the community by inspiring young talents in the fashion industry to gain more awareness, develop their brands and build lasting partnerships
This year fashNet is coming to Dallas with and we aim to set up a spectacular fashion show with a high entertainment factor in a fun, fashionable but entertaining setting.
