About

On Thursday, November 17, 2016, Fashion for Action is back at Housing Works' flagship shop in Chelsea! Revamped and revised, this ultimate shopping party will bring together industry influencers, personalities and some of the "must have" fashion essentials of the year.

The evening presents the perfect blend of fun, fashion, and feel-good fundraising. Guest get access to shop over $1million worth of donated apparel, accessories and curated closets all while sipping champagne, listening to music and mingling with the city's most fashion-forward individuals including VIPs, event chair's and influencers.

All proceeds will benefit Housing Works and our mission to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS.

Past event chairs have included, founding chair Andre Leon Talley, the late Natasha Richardson, Thom Browne, Patricia Clarkson, Francisco Costa, Dree Hemingway, Marc Jacobs, Natalie Joos, Derek Lam, Rachel Roy, Zac Posen, John Varvatos, Bevy Smith, Martha Hunt, and Patrick Janelle.

Volunteering

Each year, Fashion for Action depends on the hard work of hundreds of volunteers.
