The Fashion Umbrella Foundation’s largest FUNDraiser Baltimore Fashion Week is August 6 - 13, 2017. Baltimore Fashion Week will be celebrating 10 years during that time and in a larger venue, the Columbus Center. The 2017 production season of Baltimore Fashion Week will be held in the tent inspired waterfront venue Columbus Center, 701 E Pratt Street across from Miss Shirley's and in the heart of downtown Baltimore.
The move to the Columbus Center was a heartbreaking and emotional decision, but the organization needed to move in a direction to offer sponsors ample space for brand marketing, larger creative space for participants, and a true fashion week experience for its guests. The Columbus Center has been a vision for over 15 years. The Columbus Center also offers a private space for invited and front row guests in its "premier lounge" area located on the third floor of the Columbus Center.
The Columbus Center offers the production team the space of over 22,000-square feet of visionary transformation. With this space, the inclusion of a sneakerhead component has been added. The sneakerhead component has been gracefully named as the "Sneakerhead Elevation." Baltimore is recognized as the 3rd largest city in the county for its sneakerhead community. What better time to celebrate such a style trend than with the 10th anniversary of Baltimore Fashion Week.
"The search has been on for a "fashion week type venue" since what feels like forever. To finally find a venue that is right here in Baltimore, and within walking distance of the inner harbor was a gem. We are glad that we were approved to produce Baltimore Fashion Week at the Columbus Center. 22,000-square feet is a producer's dream, and we are blessed to have this opportunity for members of the fashion and sneakerhead community. Wait until you see it!!!" Stated Sharan Nixon, Fashion Umbrella Foundation.
2017 also opened the doors for sponsors to have the full brand marketing experience with huge marketing and brand awareness for attendees of Baltimore Fashion Week. Marketing proposals are available upon request.
