It is that time again… Women’s Fashion Show Salt Lake City Event, celebrating International Women’s Day and our new refugee neighbors and their cultural heritage.This fashion and cultural event is at once a heartfelt celebration of the various refugee cultures in our community (Sudanese, Burundi, Iraqi, Burmese, and many others) and a celebration of the beauty and fashion of women from around the world.

And contribute they are… our ladies are making some of the greatest strides in overcoming PTSD, illiteracy, and poverty and contributing in their children’s schools, in the workplace, and in college and university. More than this, they contribute to our understanding of the world and to our humanity in helping others new to where we grew up and live.The Women of the World Fashion Show Event is:
