Fashion Fix

Fete of Fashion by Thomas Nguyen


It's interesting what random meetings can happen to you.  One day a couple of friends and I were heading down to the city.  While we were at the metro, we ran into two girls who had some questions about which metro stop to get off of to the event they were attending.  We were able to help them out and ended up chit chatting on the ride down.  We kept in touch and learned that we all follow a passion to give back to our communities.

The one girl's name is Tu-Anh.  She started a non profit called Fashion Fix, where they use the avenues of fashion and art events to raise funds and awareness to a local cause.  The event that just happened was named Fete of Fashion.  The proceeds benefited the Capital Breast Care Center, which is a DC center that helps screens women for breast cancer, no matter if they are able to pay or not.  Michelle Fenty made a guest appearance that night and spoke for the CBCC. Fashion Fix was able to raise over $3,000 that night for the center. Great job Tu-Anh & the Fashion Fix Team!
