Our Programs

Our programs change the way our participants see themselves and are seen by others. The relationship to fashion can be about your own worth. You can find your voice and transform your life when you find your clothes.

Through our projects we discourage self-segregation and encourage inclusion and interactions with other models, fashion designers, stylists, hair stylists, and makeup artists.

 

Annual Runway Show

We use adult models of all ages, sizes and physical abilities along with professional, sample-sized models in a high-fashion production wearing local designers and brands. Our runway reflects the diversity of life in a beautiful parade of fashion.

Photo Shoots

Our photo shoots take place four times a year. We pair a designer with a few of our models, add hair and makeup, a photographer and venue. The result is an editorial shoot that highlights designer clothing in an unexpected, beautiful manner.
