Each year the Fashion Umbrella Foundation presents two larger-than-life fashion fundraisers. UNDER (#thepetitetakeover) is the annual petite focused fashion fundraiser devoted solely to the petite consumers. This year the 2014 production of UNDER entered into its 2nd production season. The event date was on April 19, 2014 at Jazzy Studios, Owings Mills Mall. UNDER (http://www.undertheevent.com) opened its 2nd annual production to a standing room only audience.
In addition, Baltimore Fashion Week (#baltofashwk) is the annual fashion fundraiser that provides designers and artists a professional platform to showcase “rack ready” and “purchasable” garments in front of a fashion focused audience that includes buyers, boutiques, and perspective clients. Baltimore Fashion Week (http://www.baltimore-fashionweek.com) is in its 7th production season. This year's event date is August 14-17, 2014 at the Lord Baltimore Hotel. In the past 6 years Baltimore Fashion Week has captured the attention of 11,938 guests and fashion connoisseurs.
