United Colors of Fashion presents The 4th Annual Gala. Cocktails: 6:30 PM. Awards & Entertainment: 7:30PM. Black Tie. Lexington Avenue Armory, 68 Lexington Ave, NYC. http://www.unitedcolorsoffashion.org/gala/
The theme for this year's Gala is “Paper Dreams: Writing New Runways”. It is an homage to the aspirations our students work to realize daily, that will see them stand at the forefront of the fashion industry of the future. Everyone’s success stems from a dream. As young, starry-eyed hopefuls, our students have all their dreams written down on pieces of paper, which are the incubators of their talent and ultimate success. As their dreams translate to reality, they will become the ones who change the way runways present to consumers of fashion. Be it business, production, marketing, public relations or design, their dreams will dictate the future of fashion. Therefore, our 2014 theme pays homage to the dreams they have put down on paper as they will it to fruition and write new runways for the future.
