Honoring Local Designers Who Make Safety Fashionable

Columbus is a growing hub for fashion thanks in part to the tireless efforts of the Columbus Fashion Council. This local non-profit champions creative talents through scholarships and programs like Fashion Week Columbus, the organization’s flagship fundraising event. This year, Fashion Week occurred in September and although it looked a bit different from years past due to COVID-19, it was the perfect time for ReVision Gives Back to honor the group’s outstanding efforts to make Columbus a thriving and appealing atmosphere for emerging designers and the fashion industry.

FASHION WEEK COLUMBUS

During Fashion Week Columbus, the council coordinates daily fashion-related experiences at various destinations around the city including lecturers and meet-and-greets with designers, runway shows, and announcing the winner of Columbus Fashion Council’s scholarship awarded annually to one deserving Columbus College of Art and Design fashion design student.

To adhere to COVID-19 safety guidelines, most events this year were virtual with attendees making a donation to gain access to steam the events from the comfort of their home. A small number of guest were invited to watch the epic finale runway show in-person, from a safe social distance, to close the week-long fashion celebration. The finale was recorded then streamed to the public later that evening.

SAFETY IS THE NEW CURRENCY, EVEN IN FASHION

COVID-19 also influenced the fashion designers collections. Local designer Gerardo Encinas turned to mask making to remain profitable and feed his passion for fashion during the pandemic. Encinas’ beautiful mask designs were showcased in his finale runway collection to highlight their ability to be fashionable and functional accessories that perfectly complimented each piece.

ReVision Gives Back is proud to support the Columbus Fashion Council and the talented local artists who benefit from the group’s work in our community. It is our pleasure to highlight local designers making masks to ensure an ample supply is available to safeguard the public and then take it to the next level to create masks that are fantastic works of art. By focusing on creativity and versatility the Columbus Fashion Council proves Columbus is the place to be for fashion.
