LDNY: UN Fashion Show

The LDNY Foundation is proud to be working with the London College of Fashion and Parsons School New School in NYC on a competition that will showcase winning designs by students from both LCF and Parsons interwoven with crafts by artisans from the ITC's (International Trade Centre) Women and Trade Programme.

When we were first approached to take part in the LDNY initiative, it quickly became clear how closely it reflected our own ethos of Better Lives – using fashion to drive change, build a sustainable future and improve the way we live. Through this partnership we have been extremely proud to partner with the UN’s Women and Trade Programme which has brought together our womenswear and menswear students with artisans from places such as Ethiopia and Kenya.
