Passion Meets Fashion 2018

Passion Meets Fashion 2018

Another year, another wonderful turn out.

The theme of PMF 2018 was Survivors, and it was our best event yet.

In addition to the jam-packed crowd and record fundraising efforts, we had Survivors from all different backgrounds modeling and spreading awareness for their stories.

We had Ryan, an amazing young lady living with Spina Bifida who has survived over 30 surgeries. Allan, a 3 year old who has already survived open heart surgery, and many more.

Our friends from Derby City Consent were also there with an emotional, heartfelt, art gallery spreading the message of empowerment and awareness for sexual assault survivors.

Those models, along with the adorable, adoptable pups, who are survivors themselves, made it an unforgettable, record setting night.

(We’d like to begin by including a Content Warning for mentions of sexual assault throughout this blog. Take care of yourselves and read with caution, friends.)

It's been a long, stressful, and emotion-filled week. The Kavanaugh hearings have, for many - especially survivors of sexual assault - been emotionally exhausting. The current news cycle is triggering for many survivors. Because of this, RAINN's hotline has been overflowing with calls to a point they can’t keep up, Twitter has been overflowing with both support and contempt for Dr. Ford, and most of our conversations here at BLōFISH have centered around the news cycle and how we can help.

Sarah wanted a career that allowed her to see the world but also let her be a part of something bigger than herself. This led her to the military. She chose this path with a goal to, “become something more.” Along with serving our country, Sarah explained that her reason behind joining the Maven program was “to inspire others to be themselves and not be afraid to show who they are.”
