UCOF Colors Of Fashion
Our Annual Gala is the most exciting time of the year for United Colors of Fashion as we celebrate the last year and recognize exceptional individuals for their contributions philanthropically and to the arts. UCOF is excited to present our third international runway show featuring seven renowned designers from around the world, including David Tlale, Naked Ape by Shaldon Kopman, Sukeina, Ron & Ron and Kosibah. Jan Malan is our show’s Producer and Sandi Bass is our Casting Director. We are also extremely proud to showcase the first collection of our top fashion student and Achiever of the Year, Sade Solomon, in a fashion exhibition. This year, our 2013 Annual Gala will honor Pat Cleveland, the legendary supermodel, who will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. We are also proud to have Devyn, winner of “THE FACE” modeling reality show, as our gala’s International Fashion Ambassador. The night will also feature a dance presentation by Steps on Broadway as well as the opportunity to put on your own dancing shoes as the dance floor opens with our gala DJ.
As our theme “FAITH. HOPE. FASHION.” perfectly encapsulates what United Colors of Fashion believes in. We remain faithful that our mission will launch the careers of our interns, while we provide hope for their futures and our children in Soweto, South Africa through the trans-formative medium of fashion. That is what UCOF is all about. The proceeds generated by the gala’s ticket sales are used to fund the costs of running our programs for another year, while 100% of donations are funneled directly to the beneficiaries — our youth.
Join us for an evening to remember as we celebrate our mission to Empower Youth through Fashion
