Fashion Industry gives Downtown Kids a Party Full of Holiday Fun!

December 14, 2016 will be the date for the California Fashion Foundation’s Christmas Party for Kids, continuing the tradition of the Textile Association of Los Angeles (TALA) for the 69th year! A private party hosted every year at the Cooper Design Space penthouse in the heart of the Los Angeles Fashion District. There will be gifts, singing, dancing, food, and Santa! This event is so important; and for some children, this is their only holiday celebration.

Sponsoring this event has been a priority for the California Fashion Foundation (CFF), Textile Association of Los Angeles (TALA), Cooper Design Space, California Apparel News, Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM), and the Ben & Joyce Eisenberg Foundation.

The California Fashion Foundation (CFF) and the Textile Association of Los Angeles (TALA), spearhead the planning for this event every year. Steve Hirsh, owner of the Cooper Design Space feels “this is a special event that we look forward to hosting all year—the joyful look on the kid’s faces when they see Santa in a winter wonderland setting is a truly heartwarming experience for everyone involved”.

TALA Representative Ann Davis believes “All children deserve a happy holiday this time of year.  When you see how happy the TALA/CFF party makes them, the fun they are having, the food we serve, a visit with Santa and the gifts they receive, it makes us all happier;  it just doesn't get much better than that!  There is no better reason to be involved and every reason to get involved.
