Fashion Humanitarian Organization, United Colors of Fashion (UCOF), sets a standard for engaging glamour & generosity.
United Colors Of Fashion is a Fashion Philanthropy organization, which aids charities for children living with HIV and AIDS and supports the arts and fashion education in New York. UCOF harnesses the creativity and giftedness of New York’s underprivileged, aspiring artists to help them become successful professionals in the Fashion and Arts industry. It holds an Annual Benefit Gala wherein celebrities, fashion icons, and philanthropist engage in.
With funds generated from this artistic collaboration, UCOF partners with South African aid organizations to provide relief to children with HIV/AIDS, sickle cell anemia and paralysis, who are unable to obtain proper care through normal channels.
This year, Fashion One has the privilege to be one of the Media Sponsors for this themed event, “Be Glamorous: Glamour Gives,” held at the Museum of the City of New York. United Colors of Fashion intricately has selected seven international fashion icons to showcase their Spring 2013 collections that includes Anya Ayoung-Chee, Project Runway season nine winner, Style Butler (Denmark),
Amparo Chorda (Spain), Carla Silva (Angola), Naked Ape (South Africa), Soucha Fashion House (Egypt) and David Tlale, whom was the first designer from South Africa to present on schedule at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this season.
UCOF partnering designers serve as mentors for disadvantaged novices and assists with providing hands on experiences in the industry through our workshops, lectures, and presentations.
United Colors of Fashion is presided by founding partners Ciano Clerjuste as president and Veronica Rovegno as vice president.
