The Junior League Fashions Forward into a New Century

The Junior League of San Francisco’s premiere fashion showcase and 87th annual fashion show Setting Sail into a New Century debuted at Fort Mason over three days and two nights, February 28, 2013 through March 2, 2013.  Michelle Curtis Harris set the course, and with help from some 200 volunteers, executed two fashion shows, one for adults and one for children, and a White Nights on the Water themed party for young business professionals. Curtis also added a new revenue source to the fashion show tradition by creating a three-day shopping event. Through the changes, one fashion show tradition remained: Junior League members, their children and significant others served as runway models.

Some 3,000 supporters shopped, strolled, watched the shows, and contributed to Junior League of San Francisco. Funds raised support local families in need through grants to International Rescue Committee, La Cocina, Raphael House, San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center, and The Janet Polmeroy Center. Not only does the Junior League of San Francisco provide much-needed funds to local nonprofits, but also teams of dedicated and trained volunteers and leaders.
