Voted “Best Fashion Show in San Francisco,” MODEFA SF showcases ethnically inspired haute couture by hand-selected designers from around the globe. The objective is simple: to celebrate cultural diversity, allowing designers to create and display haute couture and ready-to-wear fashion garments inspired by ancient ethnic traditional clothing and textiles modified for contemporary lifestyles.

Modern Ethnic Fashion Week is an annual charity event, conducted during International Ethnic Day Weekend to celebrate cultural diversity. The fundraising efforts aim to lay the groundwork for a long-term, sustainable art enrichment after-school and summer program that will offer African dance and drumming lessons to low-income parents for free or at a reduced cost.
