Fashion 4 Development


Fashion 4 Development places a significant focus on sustainable lifestyle practices for a healthier world.

New York Fashion week would not be complete without highlighting the power of fashion for good. Fashion 4 Development (F4D) was established January 2011 in support of the United Nations initiative “Every Woman, Every Child”.  F4D activates partnerships that promote the fashion industry, advance economic and social development activities, preserve culture and empower women.

F4D is simply a harmonious and powerful example of what is possible when fashion is intertwined with philanthropy,

F4D places a significant focus on sustainable lifestyle practices for a healthier world.  “Giving Back is the New Luxury” is the tag line of this extraordinary organization fueled by industry leaders, philanthropists, celebrities and global change agents. The message to promote positive social change is being received with open arms around the world, with initiatives in over 20 countries.

Learn more about F4D, their initiatives, and learn how you can be involved in a meaningful way by visiting their website at:
