PRESS RELEASE

Freedom and Fashion (FNF) Presents Gallant Suits x Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking (CAST) Launch Party at Edgar Varela Fine Arts Gallery (EVFA).

 

Held during LA Fashion Week, this event will challenge notions of what it means to be a man of both style and character in the 21st century. 

 

Los Angeles, CA (Sunday, October 21, 2012) – In collaboration with CAST, Freedom and Fashion presents the Gallant Suits Launch Party. Together, we will bring awareness to a new custom-tailored suit line that is committed to taking a stand against human trafficking.

 

City leaders and top executives from the fashion, non-profit and entertainment industries will gather at EVFA Gallery in Downtown LA to celebrate the vision and launch of Gallant Suits. Entertainment for the evening includes a live jazz band, a wine bar sponsored by Frey Wine and PAMA Liqueur, raffle giveaways from Adriano Goldschmied (AG) Jeans and EventBritelive models and ready-to-measure tailors for on-the-spot orders. CAST CEO Kay Buck will be presenting, amongst other notable speakers.

 

About Kay Buck & CAST

 

CAST opened the first shelter for trafficked women in the U.S. CEO of CAST, Kay Buck, is a fervent activist for the abolishment of the modern day slave trade. Having recently returned from a week of meetings in NYC with trafficking survivor Ima Matul and being introduced to key global influencers by President Obama, she intends to inspire legislative change and action in both government policy and the rehabilitation of survivors. 

 

As shared by President Obama on September 25, 2012, “Our fight against human trafficking is one of the great human rights causes of our time.”
