My Invite to Christian Fashion Week

christian_fashion_weekSo, I wrote a tongue in cheek post yesterday about Christian Fashion Week that generated more virtual chatter than I expected. Apparently there’s a good number of you out there (enough to fill out the rosters of the entire American and National League East) who feel an almost evangelical negativity about my clothing choices. Whatever.

But here’s what’s funny. Mayra and Jose Gomez, the people hosting Christian Fashion Week apparently saw my post, thought it was hilarious, and offered me a VIP pass to attend. bioPicJosebioPicMayra

Of course, that got me to, you know, read what Christian Fashion Week was actually about- something I hadn’t bothered with before (this is a blog after all not the NY Times.) The mission behind CFW is to advocate for women in the modeling industry who often feel pressure to objectify themselves or jeopardize their career. That’s actually a laudable, Christian goal and now, egg on my face, I feel like a jerk for making fun.

So there’s my shout out.

PS: CFW is in Florida this week so I can’t attend. It wasn’t clear from their invite whether they just wanted me to come or to come and participate as a model. Probably the former but if the latter, here is my submission for the swimwear exhibition.

  1. Too much skin showing, Jason. CFW helps models avoid nudity.

  2. That’s more of you than we needed to see. When are we leaving for Tampa?

  3. In my formative years, church on Sunday meant Brooks Brothers–still does when I usher. Over the years fashion has changed dramatically & nobody asked my permission. Bill Gates showed us that a blue oxford shirt & chinos worked fine as long as you had some good ideas. As usual, Washington is the last to pick up on on the rest of the the country is up to. I don’t think that you will see “casual Friday” on Capitol Hill or at the White House anytime soon. I would rather communicate the Gospel than a dress code.

    Oh, now that’s just wrong…………..but much better if it had been a picture of me.
