Quick Facts

  • Fashion Girls so far has raised over $400,000 in 2011 and 2012
  • Fashion Girls for Humanity NY sale for Sandy Relief which took place on 27 & 28 November at the Bowery Hotel generated approximately $120,000.
  • We are a 100% volunteer-based organization.  Event space, furnishings and racks are all in-kind donations from local businesses.
  • Our goal is to efficiently and productively raise funds in order to support groups who are in the field for relief and/or rebuilding efforts.  Already this year, within 7 months after our sale in April, our donation enabled one communal house to be designed and built by an architect based group, Home For All/KISYN, lead by renown architect Toyo Ito for a town of 30,000 people who have been displaced since the 2011 earthquake and Tsunami disaster in the northeastern regions of Japan.
