Why:  Our beautiful city, proudly accentuated by both the riverfront and the beach, is booming with creatives and artists with an unrelenting passion to do what they love!  With Wilmington Fashion Weekend we only hope to bring this talent to the light of the entire city and surrounding areas as a means to promote appreciation and support of our local arts community and locally owned retail businesses!

All tickets may be purchased here: http://wilmington-fashion-weekend.ticketleap.com/

Charity Partner: DREAMS Center for the Arts.  

What: DREAMS provides free-of-charge, quality classes in the creative, visual and performing arts to over 500 economically disadvantaged children between the ages of 8-17 who might not otherwise be afforded the opportunity to experience the benefits of arts education.  Through artists-in-residence, youth entrepreneurship and public art opportunities, the DREAMS Center transforms children in need into creative, committed citizens of our community.

How:  At Wilmington Fashion Weekend, DREAMS will be spotlighted to raise awareness of their efforts.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each ticket will be donated to DREAMS Center for the Arts.  Continuing with their creative efforts, the kids from DREAMS will also be one of the featured retailers at the accessory trunk show, Gold, Beads & Bauble on Saturday, April 5, 2014, at The RiverRoom on Water Street.
