Social Impact Through Collaboration
Authenticity

Our Core Values

We strive to:

2.    To further the interests of the New York fashion industry by connecting them with projects that align with their corporate social responsibility initiatives.

3.    To encourage and support recent fashion design graduates to participate in projects with social impact by increasing the availability and quality of fellowships and grant.

 

 

Authenticity

Authenticity

We make sure the things we do are genuine and in line with the approaches we believe in.

Collaboration

Collaboration

We seek to work with others, wherever possible, not just because it’s more fun, but because deep-seated change requires networks, allies and fresh thinking with others.

Reciprocity & Co-creation

Reciprocity & Co-creation

We genuinely seek to co-create a better world with other partners, preferring relationships rather than transactions.

Simplicity & Dynamism

Simplicity & Dynamism

We approach our work with the dignity, artfulness and fun it deserves, putting people at the centre of design, but always with the high energy needed to bring forth ideas to motivate and inspire others to create change.

Wholeheartedness

Wholeheartedness

We operate as whole beings. We don’t separate between formal and informal, hierarchic and functional, charity and business and we definitely don’t leave ours.
