What Sets Us Apart

Fashion with Compassion is an organization built by students, for students. It empowers members to believe in themselves – and to take responsibility for serving as agents of change.

The process of envisioning, planning, and executing all aspects of a major event teaches critical skills for college and careers in fields like fashion, business, visual arts, and marketing. Students design sets and plan programs; they negotiate with vendors and solicit sponsors; they oversee budgets and meet in a professional capacity with real-world decision makers. As a result, they walk away from each event with a tremendous sense of pride, accomplishment, and appreciation for their ability to change the world.
