Kansas City Fashion partnered with KC’s hottest nightlife spot Society to host the city's best and most exclusive Halloween Party. The event sold out within two days of launch filling the eclectic Scarlet Room with a plethora of local celebrities, athletes, models, influencers, and fun seekers. Directors of Fashion Honors Autism helped spread awareness of their fantastic organization with heartfelt speeches and donations were taken to help them further their noble mission.


Kansas City Fashion partnered with Audi Shawnee Mission and Sporting Kansas City to host a one of a kind charity poker tournament in the prestigious Audi Suites of Children’s Mercy Park. The black tie event was sold out and offered patrons a unique viewing experience pairing a high stakes poker competition with beautiful models and a fashion show. The proceeds of the evening benefitted Fashion Honors Autism, a local charity that supports and enables children with Autism Spectrum Disorder through their mentorship and assistance programs.



Past Events

Fun, fashion, and feeling good for giving back! FHA’s Black-Tie Charity Fashion Show is the finale celebration of a 3 week-long sensory and fashion inspired mentorship program. It is full of LA- glamour and is high-fashion like NY Fashion Week right in the heart of Kansas City.
