Poverty transcends borders; its passes waters that bridge continents. It encompasses the earth much like the air that we all breathe. Hands of a Hero Foundation recognize that the poverty pandemic is far more than the shoe less children in Africa. Poverty is in our backyards, our neighbourhoods, in our cities. Realizing that the problem is deeper than hemispheres is the first step to creating a solution. Self awareness and Education are key in fighting this pandemic and it is up to us to make sure we help those in need.
But just like poverty, Fashion also, transcends borders. It defines a people and creates an awareness of self and culture whilst beckoning others to realize its beauty.
Hands of a Hero Foundation – Fashion Against Poverty Gala is meant to create an atmosphere of enlightenment and beauty as it brings forth the various fabrics, styles and customs of the different continents many of us call home.
Inviting 100 to 200 people
Decorate the hall with paintings from the studio, whilst highlight different cultural Fabrics from each continent.
Show casing at least ½ designers from each continent grouping
Fashion Against Poverty is set to attract not only the chosen up and coming Fashion Designers carefully selected, but also a unique audience blended with entrepreneurs, fashion lovers, students, youth as well as dignified people from the Fashion and Entertainment sector of Toronto.
Not only are we aiming at bridging the gap of poverty around the world through this expected audience, but aggressive yet selective media and propaganda exposure will help not only promote all those involved, but will set the tone for better things to develop the following year as a result of what has been accomplished now.
