The Bay Area’s cultural scene includes theater, museums and art galleries, dance performances, music and of course, fashion.
Museums and commercial galleries are courting big tech money; institutions are being restructured; spaces are opening and (more often) closing; and designers, artists and photographers do the hard, on-the-scene work of holding it all together, making incredible wearable art and exhibits with increasingly limited time, resources and space. The Paparazzi Party features a quarterly rountable of Fashion Designers, Photographers, Artists, Agents and Models that contribute to the art and fashion scene of The Bay Area that must also be supported and celebrated for the culture itself to survive.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit a Bay Area non-profit in Oakland. Oakland Natives Give Back Fund Inc. (ONGB) is an Oakland, CA. based nonprofit 501(c)(3) that addresses the truancy and chronic absenteeism epidemic in OUSD with innovative programs and strategic initiatives that engage the entire community. In partnership with Assemblymember Rob Bonta, The Office of the Mayor, Oakland Parks & Recreation, Oakland Unified School District and local community and corporate leaders, ONGB aims to raise awareness around daily attendance. Up and coming artist will struggle without a proper education and work ethic.
Thank you for your interest and support and please let me know if there is anything else I can do to foster the Bay Area’s Fashion and Arts Community.
