Teamwork Commerce, a retail management software company, announced today that it has donated an additional £2,000+ to Global Giving’s Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund through its sponsorship of London’s recent “The Sound of Fashion” event. This adds to the more than £27,000 it has already raised for the organisation. The three-hour event, which attracted over 400 attendees, was designed to celebrate London’s emerging music and fashion artists, while raising funds for the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
Donating 100% of ticket sales to Global Giving’s relief fund, The Sound of Fashion event opened up a space for music and fashion lovers to mingle, while providing them with a series of performances from some of London’s most emerging creatives.
Teamwork Commerce aimed to create a platform for emerging musicians and fashion designers, to help promote their brand and give them more exposure. Having recently opened an office in London, Teamwork – which provides point of sale and order management for some of the world’s largest fashion retailers – is keen to contribute back to the city by helping the local community.
The event, which was opened by Danica Hunter, consisted of three designers (Christiana Hadjipapa, Thora Stefansdottir and Lynn La Yaung) and three musicians (Chinchilla, Quarry and Adora). Split into pairs, each musician was tasked with creating a 20-minute set to a runway of the designer’s most recent collection.
Founded by Michael Mauerer, the creator of Retail Pro and Quickbooks POS, the Teamwork Commerce team has a tremendous passion for all things retail. With offices in 9 countries, giving back to local communities is an important focus for the company.
The Sound of Fashion event was hosted by Jonathan Mauerer, VP Operations at Teamwork Commerce, and also consisted of a separate designer showroom, DJ sets, and an afterparty.
“The event was an amazing success,” explains Mauerer. “We completely sold out the venue and the place was packed. Everyone had a ton of fun, but the most important aspect of the event for us was that we were able to promote some of London’s best young talent and give them a platform on which they could showcase their incredible talents.”
“Not only that, but we were able to raise funds for the terrible conflict that is currently going on in Ukraine,” continues Mauerer. “As an organisation, we want to support the relief effort in any way that we can, and we are grateful to everyone who attended this event for enabling us to do that here.”
