Compassion Through Fashion For Designers

New Directions’ Compassion Through Fashion event is an opportunity for local artists to make a difference through design. Whether you are an individual or represent a group or business, you can help make a difference in the lives of homeless men, women, and children. Your unique, handmade entry is what makes CTF one of the “can’t miss” event on the Grand Strand. Through your entry, you will be a part of creating an event that increases awareness, promotes advocacy, and raises funds which empower homeless to move from shelter, to hope, to change. Will you help change the lives of homeless through your creative talent?

Fill out the entry form below to get started. Once you have confirmed your design, materials, and model, you can complete a show description to help us correctly announce your design at the event.
