Flourish: How a Local Fashion Show is Changing Single Mothers’ Lives

Flourish: How a Local Fashion Show is Changing Single Mothers’ Lives

It’s such a beautiful thing when our compassionate community unites to help our fellow residents, and a new and thrilling opportunity to do so is almost here!  Former Denver Fashion Week co-producer William Maestas is on a mission to help our area’s single mothers create a better future for themselves, their children, and the world.  For the second year in a row, he’s teamed up with local non-profit organization, WomenGive, to present a trendsetting style event that raises money for childcare scholarships that empower single mommas to attain a life-changing college education.

The second annual Flourish Fashion Show will take place at Rove in Old Town Fort Collins on July 22, 2022.  Funds raised through the event will create life-changing childcare scholarships for these supermoms.  Incredibly, last year’s fabulous occasion netted over $5,000 for this important endeavor, and Maestas aims to raise even more this time.

WomenGive reports that “the average cost of full-time, center-based child care in Larimer County is $1,187.87 per month, per child”, a figure that is hard to meet even with a full-time salary – especially if you have more than one kiddo.  To date, they have distributed some 845 childcare scholarships that benefitted over 400 little ones, allowing over 125 moms to earn their college diplomas.  It’s a big deal!

William Maestas wields many years of elite event coordination experience and impressive business savvy to create unforgettable occasions that often serve a charitable purpose (including Urban Nights which benefitted Urban Peak).  He’s also been involved in Fashion West, Color of Fashion, Fashion Denver, Fierce in the City, and NYFW: The Shows.  Maestas has a sensational gift for bringing people together over fashion for philanthropic flair.  His gifts will glisten under the runway lights at the upcoming Flourish Fashion Show.

Guests will be welcomed with a fine glass of champagne and stellar hors d'oeuvres as they enjoy perusing a network of sophisticated pop-up shops.  When the models hit the catwalk, you’ll be mesmerized by the works of a world-class international designer, many of Colorado’s most talented designers, a few recent CSU Fashion Design graduates, and your favorite local boutiques.  You do not want to miss this night of glamour and giving!
