This isn't just about Cleveland though.  There is a much bigger picture here.  The entire staff of Street Fashion Week, its producers, creative director, and staff have a humanitarian and philanthropic goal.  Lead by creative and artistic director Naomi Alabi, some of the proceeds from the show will help solidify SFW's relationship with emerging markets in developing nations  - helping to ensure fair-trade and proper wages, safe working conditions, and access to educational material.  While we would love to have everything "made in America," that just isn't always economically feasible - especially in the fashion industry.  It should be our responsibility and moral imperative to ensure that we can consume, guilt free, and to know we are doing our very best to ensure safe working conditions & fair compensation - to know who makes our clothes and to know that we are helping families prosper and businesses to flourish.  In the end we all win.
