Fashion Business Inc.’s 5th Annual Fashion Show

Fashion Business, Inc. held its 5th Annual runway show at the historic Union Station in Downtown, L.A. The non-profit organization provides the fashion industry with entrepreneurial development, resources, and training to support its growth and profitability by offering targeted business education, sourcing, networking opportunities, marketing, and consulting services. If you’re in the fashion business the best investment you can make is to join F.B.I.

Guests also had the opportunity to purchase handcrafted jewelry by Charlie’s Creations and Tigre Sheets.

The fashion show, which featured collections from emerging and established designers, was hosted by KABC news co-anchor David Ono and actress Erica Ash (Survivor’s Remorse and Real Husbands of Hollywood). David introduced F.B.I.’s founder Frances Harder, who told us more about her wonderful organization and how much it does for the fashion community.

MK Collab was next on the list. The company offers fashion lovers a unique entrepreneurial platform by providing them with their own eBoutique web-site.
