Our Story

Pink Carpet Project is a rogue pop-up event that has been smashing the patriarchy since 2012, when it was originally organized as a fashion/arts show benefit in response to Susan G. Komen’s threat to cut critical funds to Planned Parenthood. Under the improvised leadership of 50 young volunteers within the fashion/arts community, 400 womxn came together to stand with Planned Parenthood, resulting in a sold out show and thousands of dollars raised for PP’s clinic breast exam program for uninsured women. A few months later, we took our fashion show to Portland and hosted another sold-out Pink Carpet Project Show with Seattle and Portland fashion designers, raising thousands of dollars for Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette. 

Years later, Pink Carpet reignited on Inauguration Day 2017 as the largest progressive womxn’s event in Seattle. Featuring local legislators, renown womxn’s rights activists, slam poetry artists, international performers, and dozens of womxn business owners for a pop-up shop event. Pink Carpet Project has repositioned itself as a non-profit, hosting impromptu programs for Seattle’s progressive womxn’s community to promote organic relationships, inspire activism and leadership, and facilitate learning opportunities. Pink Carpet Project has become a highly anticipated event with name recognition and distinction among Seattle’s up-and-comers.
