Fashion Fights Poverty: Raw
The 6th Annual Fashion Gala (FFP 2010)
With cutting edge presentations each year, last year’s “Raw” theme is about nurturing untapped creative energy, asserting creativity over trends, artisanship over mass-production, natural fibers over synthetics, young ideas over cynicism, and opportunity over poverty. “Raw” is a return to the “primal” state of making clothes and art for both spiritual nourishment and economic survival. It is a celebration of fashion not as protection from the elements, but as artistic adornment that expresses a person’s identity and vision of the world. Proceeds from last year’s benefit will support FFP’s community youth programs including Woodrow Wilson High School and its globally sustainable projects, aimed at creating income-generating or microfinance opportunities for individuals/families/communities in developing countries.
This event was the launch of the eco-chic line of apparel and accessories.
