St. Louis Fashion Fund Kick-Off Party

This past Tuesday, Rungolee owner, Anjali Kamra, hosted the kick-off party for the St. Louis Fashion Fund. This party brought together the St. Louis fashion community to celebrate the official start to the new non-profit and their finalized fall events — including the Emerging Designer Showcase where the winner will receive $15,000 of funding for their line! The proceeds from the showcase will help open the first Fashion Incubator in the historic “Garment District buildings” on Washington Avenue; where designers can live, work and manufacture their lines.
