If there was ever a true “super” model, it would be Karlie Kloss. Somehow, she found time to collaborate on a collection of sunglasses with Warby Parker. The shapes and styles are mod with a modern twist.

What makes these cool-girl shades even better? A portion of the proceeds goes to Edible Schoolyard NYC, which works with low-income NYC public schools to build kitchens and gardens where they teach students to develop lifelong healthy habits.

Fashion with a great cause backing it up? Another reason to love Kloss even more.

For The Sake Of Fashion: A Letter From Alex

I recently chatted with Beauty Look Magazine about my “passion for fashion.”

As a freshman accounting major, I started my blog as a creative outlet for myself.  With the positive reaction to my blog, I realized I might be able to merge my love of fashion and a business degree into a career, leading me to switch my major at DePaul University to PR and Marketing last year.

About a year ago, realizing the impact of social media, I made the decision to expand my blog into more of a fashion and lifestyle platform called Street Style Chi ~ Fashion & Lifestyle.  The response has been extremely gratifying for me, and has opened many doors into the worlds of styling and fashion in a way I never expected.

With this being said, a second annual For The Sake Of Fashion is one of those doors that has been opened, and I could not be more excited! This year, I was proud to partner with FORD Models to produce the show.  And we are hoping to create a greater awareness of UNICEF and it’s mission “to advocate for the protection of children’s rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential”. I don’t really think it gets any better than that.

Come to Cortelyou Commons tomorrow night at 7:00PM and see a great show, for a great cause!

For the Sake of Fashion 2014

January 2014

For the second year in a row, Streetstylechi.com is presenting our annual For the Sake of Fashion charity fashion show, with 100% of the proceeds going to UNICEF.

This will be a fun, fashion filled night, taking place on March 8th at Cortelyou Commons. Who doesn’t love a great fashion show for an even better cause?

Currently, we are seeking out volunteers for the upcoming show. Last year, For the Sake of Fashion would not have been possible without the help of all of our fabulous volunteers. This is not only a good cause, but will also serve as a great way to make connections.

Last year, we raised over $2,000 in donations, and had over 300 people attend when we only had 180 seats. Needless to say, we were incredibly pleased with the way the night turned out.

Questions? Shoot me an email at: streetstylechi@gmail.com
