Through this philanthropy fashion show, we will transform the current school culture from competitiveness and the self-centeredness to philanthropy and collaboration.
The collaboration among the students through this philanthropy project will transform the culture of The New School by integrating all the available talents to create a greater value to the community. This project will be started as an on-campus clothing drive, which would encourage all the students and faculty to participate. Fashion design students would be recruited to alter the donated clothes into a new and exciting way. A large number of students in all majors would be involved to work together to build a charity fashion show to showcase and auction out the alternated clothes. The money raised at the fashion show along with the rest of clothing drive clothes would be donated to a local orphanage or homeless shelter. Through the process of preparing for the fashion show, students will become better team players through collaboration and build a happier life during the school year and greater networking in the future.
