Do you know that the amount of education loans taken by a student for a pursuing degree in fashion is double the salary of a recent fashion graduate? This harsh reality is increasing the gap between established and aspiring fashion designers.

Tonight at 6 PM at Chelsea, New York. Please join us to support a special exhibition featuring photographs of Cristina De Middel. This event is organized by Dillon Gallery in collaboration with United Colors Of Fashion, Inc. (UCOF) and #PUKU Tanzania to celebrate #AFRICA
The celebration will be followed by a #fashionshow, silent auction featuring jewelry, handbags, and accessories by #internationalAfricandesigners. Profits from the sales of all artworks and silent auction will benefit aspiring fashion education students at #UCOFAcademy

The gap between the rich and poor is spreading out. The elites prosper leaving little room for newcomers to grow. This is the reality of the fashion world.

UCOF Inc. was formed to break the barriers aspiring fashion designers face. Join us in our mission to empower under-resourced youth by providing free fashion education.
