    Until Theres A Cure is a national organization dedicated to eradicating HIV/AIDS by raising awareness and funds to combat this pandemic. Their dream is that no one else will become infected by AIDS, and their goal is to fund preven-tion education, care services, and vaccine development.

  • San Francisco has been known to be a city of many things: art, innovation and technology just to name a few. It is a city that pays hom-age to being open and independently mind-ed. Its residents perpetuate their unique flare throughout the Bay Area as they have created a style statement that embodies their city. From the unknown indie talent to those cutting edge avant-garde, Chic Fashion Week will highlight and bring national atten-tion to its talented designers.

    Not only are we a fashion-forward com-munity with diversity and style, but we are a community that gives back, as we proudly introduce Until Theres A Cure as our title benefactor. From proceeds to couture dona-tions, Chic Fashion Week brings a level of philanthropy to fashion week unlike the city has ever seen before.
