Fashion Designers Expo presented the first "I HEART Fashion.I HEART Kids" in 2012 to empower youth around the globe using their love for fashion as the tool.
"I HEART Fashion.I HEART Kids" featured close to 100 kids and teens, strengthening the Self Confidence, Self Esteem, Self Worth, of our youth while encouraging them to dream big. The goal is to let youth know that they can do anything they put their minds to. They can make a difference in their community, their nation, and even their world!
"I HEART Fashion.I HEART Kids" also focuses on anti-bullying. Bullying has become a very sad issue in our school system for years and has caused more and more suicides. "I HEART Fashion.I HEART Kids" is taking a step towards positive change by using fashion as the tool to empower our youth; building up their self esteem and equip them with the strength and confidence to face the challenges of life.
