About Fashion for a Cause Foundation
The Fashion for a Cause Foundation was founded in Las Vegas, NV in 2012 by fashion photographer and philanthropist, Andres Gonzalez, to raise funds and awareness for local charity organizations. In early 2017, FFACF moved its operations to Florida where corporate leader and consultant, Carlos Junquera, joined the foundation to lead the development of its community programs.
The foundation continues to use fashion as a platform to help other local charities but, expanded its mission to support emerging designers and with the launch of SFIFW, FFACF’s capital campaign, FFACF is working to secure a location where they can:
- continue facilitating fashion and art apprenticeship programs;
- offer workshops to teach at-risk men and women with barriers to employment an industry related trade to gain employment and economic independence;
- support at-risk youth through various fashion and art programs; and
- offer work space for emerging designers and artists in general.
