The Urban Fashion Week is producing the first London “Olympic” Urban Fashion Week. We are bringing over 10 models and 6 designers to jell with London designers and models.

We are providing opportunities for designers and models, hair stylists, make-up artists, and models from the US and Europe to participate.

UFW is looking for individuals and corporations to support this cause. Because this event is so historical in nature, we are producing a plaque that will commemorate brands, corporations and Tastemakers in their US dedicated participation. These plaques will be engraved with their names. This plaque will be showcased the entire duration of the US Olympics for the press and visitors to see during the London Olympic Urban Fashion Week. We are expecting over 5,000 visitors to come to the London Olympic Urban Fashion Week events from all over the world.

Designers’ costs are $1,500 (one thousand five hundred) to participate. The deadline to have your logo or name engraved is August 5, 2012. Each sponsorship package comes with to 2 (two) free tickets* to the event for the entire week *for those that spend $500 or more.

UFW is going over to represent the International Urban Fashion Community and looking to connect with other countries that will be in London during this historical Olympics.
