Proceeds from charity fashion show to benefit ATG’s supported orphanages in Vietnam, outreach programs and its Artistic Scholarship Fund.
October 1. 2011
6:30pm – 10:00pm
Fashion for a Passion (FFAP) showcases the collections of emerging Asian American designers, and several pieces from each designer’s collection will be auctioned off.
The proceeds benefit orphanages in Asia and ATG’s (Against The Grain) scholarship fund for Asian American students pursuing a degree in the arts.
This year’s roster of talent includes Texas’ Next Top Designer finalist Ann Hoang for Ann Hoang, Cac Lam for CacJudi, Hanh Dang for Lucy Dang, Judy Yang for JudYang, Khanh Nguyen for Nhã Khanh, Kyle Ramirez for Playful Ambitions and Ninh Nguyen for NINH Collection.
In addition to the fashion showcase, there will be hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, a silent auction, musical entertainment, and an exhibition of work by local Asian American artists.
Each designer was also challenged to create a design of their own using an ATG t-shirt. The shirts will be on display and auctioned at the event.
This year’s participants are made up of an eclectic mix of designers with diverse styles, influences, educational backgrounds and Asian ethnicities. “I am proud and humbled that these talents have united with us to share their talents and raise money for a worthy cause,” said ATG President/Founder Tammy Nguyen Lee. “It’s sure to be an amazing show that our audience will enjoy.”
