June Speaker: Brittany Alphonso, St. Augustine Fashion Week
Topic: The Business Value of Dressing for Success
Brittany is the designer behind Banana Bread Baby and founder of St. Augustine Fashion Week. Brittany’s passion for fashion and design began as a child, but only grew stronger when having children of her own. Her children inspired her to pursue her passion for design and creativity. Brittany has shown her line of children’s clothing across the United States, but when it came to her hometown, St. Augustine, she saw a need for a fashion industry event to give designers like herself a platform to showcase their work.
She launched STAFW Spring 15' to grow the local Fashion Industry and launch the fashion careers of emerging designers, models, hair/makeup artists and stylists. While fashion and creativity fuel the events, philanthropy fuels our soul. STAFW donates to local non-profit organizations who serve the community by providing arts programs, edu /opportunities, or services to vulnerable populations.
At our June event we will showcase some local retailers and our own WWVC members modeling some of the latest styles to help you go from work to life.
