April 7, 2015- Tampa, Florida- Eye on Fashion Week, hosted by The Fashion Movement, returns once again to the Tampa Bay area, but this time with a mission to attempt to raise awareness on human trafficking right in our own backyard.
Many people think of the beaches and sports when thinking of this area. However, Tampa Bay has a dark side, which is being a hotbed for human trafficking. Organizations such as Redefining Refuge works to help victims to experience a speedy recovery from the trauma and advocates for awareness. The Fashion Movement has long been a supporter for displaced and abused children. However, this year they decided to turn the attention on the subject of modern day slavery during this year’s Eye on Fashion Week. The Fashion Movement wants to ensure they are doing what they can to help non-profits such as Redefining Refuge continue doing their good deeds within the community.
Eye on Fashion grew from a one day event in 2013 to a three-day event this year which begins April 16th at the 4D Studio in South Tampa with the Mens’ Collection, showcasing the cutting edge styles for men today. On April 17th, the weekend will continue with the Fashion Stylists Competition at downtown Tampa’s The Vault. Top stylists from across the country will gather and compete head to head for a grand prize. Finally, the weekend will come to an end on April 18th with the Bloggers’ Ball at the Aloft Hotel. Bloggers from across the nation are expected to gather here for a fashion night dedicated to this worthy cause. Attendees can expect to see designers and stylists from New York, South Carolina, Alabama and Florida. Each event will have live music, complimentary appetizers, and cash bars. The weekend is assured to be one filled with style, grace, and charity.
Eye on Fashion Week ticket prices range from $20 – $40. They are available now through Eventbrite (http://bit.ly/18CN1MV). T.O.R.C.H. Ignited will also be the beneficiary of a portion of ticket sales.
