Fashion Designers Expo Coming October 2012

Fashion Designers Expo (FDE) is back with an exciting line up of runway shows and events set for October 18th – 20th. FDE is among the largest expositions of emerging fashion talent. Major press, celebrities, socialites and thousands of guests have attended FDE to see “Who’s NEXT in Fashion?” This organization scouts for the best up and coming models, designers, make up artists, stylists, hair stylists, etc. and puts them all together in an amazing Fashion Week filled with glamour and entertainment.

With a fabulous City Style Collective Pop-Up Shop during the pre-show hour and designers traveling from India and London this season, FDE is sure to bring the best of the best in the emerging fashion industry! This season FDE is presented by and benefitting B.i.o.n.i.c. Girls, Inc.

“It’s more than just another Fashion Week; it’s giving the emerging industry a secure platform to bring their dreams to reality while using the power and glamour of the runway in support of non profit organizations to impact our world,” says CEO and Co-Founder of FDE, Karine Melissa. In celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Fashion Designers Expo is presented by and benefitting B.i.o.n.i.c. Girls, Inc. to bring awareness, empower, and fund-raise for the cause.

The mission of B.i.o.n.i.c. Girls (BG) is to empower and transform the lives of young breast cancer survivors who have undergone cancer treatment and mastectomy. BG focuses on rebuilding self-image and self-esteem while creating opportunities for wellness. The goal of BG is to promote public awareness and early breast cancer detection especially in women 45 and under as this population of women is increasingly becoming diagnosed. BG offers free services that will allow patients to focus more on healing and less on life’s stresses.

Founder of B.i.o.n.i.c. Girls, Andrea Nugent, says, “I am truly passionate about this cause because I feel no one should go through this fight alone. I was fortunate enough to have my family and friends there for support, love and prayers. They came, they cooked, they cleaned, they drove me to treatment and they took turns taking care of my son. During treatment I met so many women who told me they were alone, either divorced, divorcing or had family in other states. This was my inspiration. I am not just some Founder or CEO, I am someone whom God has truly blessed to be able to say I have been there, I have overcome and now I am in a position to offer. love, support and compassion to others who are facing the same journey.”
