FOCUS

The show will feature youth models displaying cultural wear from local and national designers from around the world and in our Ohio communities. The goal of the event is to educate people about different cultures as well as bullying prevention through fashion and arts.
Cultural appreciation and exchange is focusing on defining who we are exactly, what we look like, and how we affect each other socially, physically and mentally. The main take-away from the show is for guests to become accepting, appreciate and celebrate different cultures along with learning all about bullying prevention.

FASHION DESIGNERS or FEATURED ARTISTS

We are giving designers and featured artists a creative space to display clothes of one’s culture. It’s important that fashion designers show through their arts how culture appropriation can negatively affect youth through suicide, bullying, depression and more… The bottom line is the Fashion/Kids Art show wants to show our city that it’s important to be culturally aware everyday of the year.
