Housing Works Presents "Fashion for Action" with Zac Posen and John Varvatos
New Yorkers, come together and join New York City’s charitable, social and fashion communities for its annual Housing Works “Fashion for Action” event. Supported by hundreds of the fashion industry’s most influential designers, the event is an exclusive designer discount sale featuring a curated collection of sought after luxury brands. Proceeds from this charity event will support Housing Works’ youth outreach programming, which provides dedicated HIV-prevention and treatment services for young people living with HIV/AIDS or at-risk of infection.
Guests attending the event will get first dibs on over a million dollars worth of new, high-end apparel, accessories and merchandise at the intimate shopping party located at the newly renovated Housing Works Chelsea Thrift Shop, then dance the night away at the Rubin Museum of Art. Tickets are now on sale with a small number of $100 general admission tickets available for a limited time.
This year, Housing Works is thrilled to be partnering with celebrated fashion designers Zac Posen and John Varvatos as Fashion for Action Co-Chairs. Together they will leverage their influence and leadership to create an inspiring, fun and creative event.
“It’s always rewarding to see our design community come together to support a good cause,” says Posen. “Fashion for Action is more than just a fun night of shopping; it’s a way for us to raise awareness for HIV/AIDS. We would love for NYC to come out and shop, guilt free!” Varvatos adds, “I’m excited to be on board for this year’s Fashion for Action. Housing Works shares the same energy and passion that I have for this city, and it’s important for me to support their mission.”
