BK|SF lends a voice to social issues including human rights, HIV/AIDS awareness, eco-friendly initiatives, poverty, community development and leadership training.

HIGHLIGHTS

The view from Fashion Week Brooklyn began with a well curated   view of Brooklyn used as their backdrop including Kings Plaza Mall, East New York, Downtown Brooklyn & Atlantic Ave to site a few. Outdoor runways, fashion tributes, exhibitions and evening mingles were an exhilarating way to keep Fashion Week Brooklyn fresh, exciting and well designed. The design of the shows paid homage to both seasoned veterans and fashion new comers including a scholarship award (given by Kings Plaza Organization) for this years runner up- Junior Project Runway. I especially liked the inclusiveness of this years Brooklyn Fashion Week with invite only and open-to-the-public events. Guest and honorees came near and far to attend Fashion Week Brooklyn.
