The Gatsby Showcase Foundation Annual Fashion Show & Awards Presentation Gala

The Gatsby Showcase Foundation Annual Fashion Show & Awards Presentation Gala uses fashion as an empowerment platform that creates and celebrates inspiring stories of transformation while harnessing the healing power, joy, and attention that fashion brings to raise awareness, bolster self-esteem, promote healing and honor courage. Our focus on equitable access and inclusion extends to recognizing the achievements of historically underrepresented and marginalized individuals during The Gatsby Showcase Foundation Annual Fashion Show & Awards Gala. Highlights of the gala includes a cocktail hour; fashion and award presentations, and a seated dinner.
