These Saint Louis Fashion Fund party photos are all from pre-pandemic events which were highly successful. From fashion competitions to famous names like Karlie Kloss, SLFF attracts and supports everything that has to do with local fashion and manufacturing which benefits us all.
Susan Sherman, one of the co-founders of SLFF, is our Anna Wintour of St. Louis. She happens to be one of the main people responsible for getting Evolution STL, a high-tech knitting company to open in St. Louis. The company now makes apparel for the St. Louis Blues, a huge win for St. Louis and a big Kudos for the STL Fashion Fund.
All this said, SLFF did what it set out to do, to bring back apparel manufacturing to the Lou one company at a time. You can’t talk about SLFF without mentioning Sherman, a stunning woman that knows fashion like Einstein knew physics. It’s just that simple.
SLFF continues to work during the pandemic making masks for the masses including hat designer Dianne Isbell who is operating from home for now. Once the pandemic is over, you can count on an increase in apparel manufacturing in St. Louis thanks to amazing team and directors at the SLFF.
Below are just a few photos of what it looked like during these amazing fashion soirees before the pandemic. .
