[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]By now I’m sure you have a decent understanding of who we are at CAAFD and what we hope to accomplish (if not there is an “About Us” section above), but we still run across people with more questions, so this will serve as a FAQ of sorts.
CAAFD, as stated around the website, stands for the Council of Aspiring American Fashion Designers, with an emphasis on ASPIRING. Gaining exposure is one of the hardest things to achieve in any industry, and the fashion industry is no different. It is a tough world trying to stand out, and CAAFD wants to make it easier for the aspiring designers to have their voice heard.
One of the aspects of our organization is to try introducing foreign designers to the American fashion industry. Fashion is an international affair, and a lot of the emerging designers across the world don’t have an opportunity to display their work here, and CAAFD is there to give these international designers a platform.
In our About Us section you will find a small section on Fashion With Heart, and we have received questions asking us to expand upon that a little. Fashion With Heart is an initiative managed by CAAFD and is close to heart with everything CAAFD does. Through Fashion With Heart, we hope to give the fashion industry the shot in the arm it so desperately needs. By educating the new talents coming into the fashion world, we hope to keep standards in the fashion industry high, while letting new ideas and new designers prosper.
Fashion With Heart is also closely tied with our humanitarian projects. The “FASHION” part of the name is easy to divine, but “WITH HEART” is harder for people to grasp right away. Our founders have two passions: Fashion and helping the world become a better place. Chiefly, our humanitarian projects deal with bettering the health of people living in areas where good health isn’t always a certainty. For more specific information on the humanitarian projects Fashion With Heart deals with, check out their individual blog posts.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
