There are fashion shows spread across the globe during specified fashion weeks. Some events are for industry insiders, some are for press and buyers, and others are merely for entertainment. Fashion shows with a higher purpose are the productions we keep a watchful eye out for. Les Couleurs Charity is a focused organization with clarity around the statistics they aim to impact.
We aim to inspire and empower underprivileged children through arts education and creativity
