Chicago Couture Fashion Week, NFP (CCFW, NFP) is a local Entertainment, Fashion Consulting and Show Production Company that presents promotes and produces high octave fashion, art exhibitions and entertainment and works with local students, talent and at risk youth and working in conjunction with American Heritage Youth Foundation, NFP. The central core of our show is to celebrate emerging young artists, designers and talent from the local and surrounding communities and give them a platform to showcase their collections in our couture tradeshows. Many of our exhibiting couturier designers target a higher caliber niche market which consists of high powered business executives, celebrities, buyers and the likes. Moreover, each year, our aim is to bring awareness of how violence against youth negatively impacts Chicago. Our organization offers positive alternative activities for youth involvement through our many programs in the arts, health and education. Through our arts showcase and youth apprentice program, it gives a chance for at-risk youth to work with professionals in the industry, to get hands on skills and to increase their awareness of the many facets education in the arts has to offer them.
CCFW Inc. produces arts exhibitions in support promoting Chicago arts education and entertainment in the following disciplines (Design, Acting, Dance, Fashion, Modeling, Music, Paintings, Photography, etc.) as a way of violence prevention. CCFW, NFP, is a not for profit organization that helps to raise funds for American Heritage Youth Foundation and other non for profit organizations that support the cause of educations in the arts and other after school programs that help keep kids off the streets and into positive constructive activities through show production.
The Event Cause
When you turn on the news, it seems that every day a child is being bullied, injured or even killed by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. We here at CCFW,INC(NFP) and our event partners American Heritage Youth Foundation believe that when the youth are involved in constructive activities, which they have fun doing, it limits the time for them to become involved in at risk behaviors. CCFW, INC (NFP) donates 20% of our ticket sales each year to our community outreach programs in support arts & entertainment and keeping the youth off the street and educated in the arts & entertainment sector.
This organization is also in existence to give our local artists from the community and the surrounding communities a platform to exhibit their talents to the local community and beyond. We are also giving gift bags which will be full of our many sponsors product, to our show supporters who attend this event.
In addition, each holiday season we also raise funds for CCFW‘s youth apprenticeship programming and to raise funds to help end youth violence, provide school supplies during te back to school season, as well as to provide free makeovers for women victimes of domestic violence and a holiday gift baskets during the christmas holiday season. We thank you for your contribution.
