FASHION 4 DEVELOPMENT

Fashion 4 Development  is a private sector global platform founded by Evie Evangelou in January 2011 in support of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and “Every Woman, Every Child”, the UN initiative spearheaded by Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon. F4D builds upon the core leadership principles of the 4Es: Educate, Empower, Enhance and Enrich, and activates partnerships that promote the fashion and textile industry, advance economic and social development activities, preserve culture and empower women. In 2015 F4D committed to support the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals and place a significant focus on sustainable lifestyle practices for a healthier world. Fashion 4 Development’s tag line, “Giving Back is the New Luxury”, and its message to promote positive social change are being received with open arms around the world, with initiatives in over 20 countries.

F4D’s mission is to promote positive social change and harness the power of the fashion and beauty industries by implementing creative strategies for sustainable economic growth and independence of communities worldwide, through the expression of fashion.
