Nima Shiraz Fashion Show to Benefit Global Fund for Women

Nima Shiraz Fashion show

You are cordially invited to an evening of gourmet food, scrumptious cocktails and high-end fashion at San Francisco’s beloved cultural center, SOMArts. Be the first to preview the Nima Shiraz Fall Winter 2016 Ready to Wear and Couture collection, featuring an array of chic designs created to inspire today’s generation of San Francisco urbanites.

Proceeds benefit Global Fund for Women, a San Francisco based non-profit that envisions a world in which every woman and girl is strong, safe, powerful, and heard. The organization is a global champion for the human rights of women and girls. Global Fund for Women uses its powerful networks to find, fund, and amplify the courageous work of women building social movements and challenging the status quo.

The evening will include the exclusive premiere of the first-ever Nima Shiraz fashion film starring our special guest Chrysta Bell. The Oakland-based songstress, actress, and fashion muse has performed in over 30 countries and been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, and Love Magazine.

The designer, Nima Shiraz, will debut his new collection during this exclusive event. Nima’s creations have been featured in nationally published editorials and graced the red carpet of numerous events. “I have created this collection for the hip sophisticated woman,” says Nima. “She combines elegance with a streak of playfulness.”

Nima’s meticulous creations inspire audiences with their alluring lines, intricate details, quality fabrics and flawless construction. His forthcoming locally produced collection is inspired by the natural beauty of today’s confident woman who is empowered to be different and bold.
