Founded & established in December 2014 by Erika Chanel Gethers aka Erykah Chanel, FAME (Featuring Ambitious Models & Entrepreneurs) Charity Fashion Event (FAMECFE) is a premier mini fashion week held in Cambridge & Boston, Massachusetts with the vision/ Mission of:

Creating progressive partnerships which will lead to collaborative business opportunities for our designers, models, vendors and other fashion professionals.

 Connecting designers/boutiques with press/media while providing quality pre/runway images to promote their brand.

Expansion to new clientele at a place that brings together like minded buyers & supporters of the arts.

Identity: To rebrand the perception of Africa as a whole through luxury fashion initiatives

Graduating with a Hotel, Restaurant & Service Management Bachelors of Science degree from Newbury College & with Erykah Chanel's 10+ years as a freelance  Print & Runway model, she always was passionate about producing her own show & helping create opportunities for other freelancers/emerging talents. Chanel got the push after reading the inspiring book Promise of A Pencil by Adam Braun, which left Chanel questioning, how can she help, which lead to FAME.

The ultimate goal of FAME is to be able to raise enough money ($10,000) through these events to have a school built through Promise Of A Pencil an organization that provides life changing education to kids around the world. FAME also realizes the need to help/promote other organizations and will allow our guest to decide which one they want to donate to as we will have various options.

Currently with 4 shows produced we have been blessed to showcase 32 designers from the tri state area (New York, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, & Boston). FAME Charity Fashion Event is dedicated to the growth for everyone involved with making this event take place.  FCFE also works with colleges/universities to expose young talent both behinds the senses & on the runway.

This 2019  FCFE will launch Fashion Flight Student Design Competition, where Design Innovation & Education  meets! This addition is dedicated to  creating the opportunity and advancement of emerging designers while giving them real life learning experience & tools to make it within the industry. 

By incorporating local & national designers, we are able to provide a one of a kind experience, as well as providing an avenue for brands to showcase and promote their products/services as part of a professionally produced & event .
