We cannot say it enough, we are so lucky to have such an incredible community of supporters. From those who came to celebrate in person to those who supported us from afar, we really could not have done this without you.

Your support this year was transformational. With it, Mercado Global can continue to be a catalyst for positive change throughout rural Guatemala while expanding our impact to other regions of Latin America. We look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s event!

Your support of Fashion Forward will raise critical funding and awareness of the challenges Indigenous communities face in rural Guatemala. This event directly supports the women who are at the heart of all we do, along with thousands of their family members.

Thanks to the critical funding raised throughFashion Forward, we can offer the tools, training, and support, so that Indigenous women in rural Guatemala can become Mercado Global artisans. As one of the only sources of revenue in their communities right now, we provide them and their families with steady income, along with emergency supports like food and masks, to help keep them safe and healthy.

Supporting a nonprofit focused on women’s empowerment and ethical fashion demonstrates a commitment to worker’s rights around the world, at a time where critical social issues are at a tipping point. Partnering with donors, retailers, and artisans, we are reshaping the world to be more ethical, sustainable, and just – for all of us.
