Who Fashion For Charity Is…

Fashion for Charity harnesses the power of fashion, entertainment, and the visual arts to help vulnerable people. From Abuja to Milan to Atlanta, various industry players in fash- ion design, fashion photography, fashion media, modeling and more, have come together to become a force for good in Nigeria and beyond. This year, Fashion for Charity has been focusing on the plight of internally displaced persons from north-eastern Nige- ria.
