Fashion One Foundation Partners with Anti-Human Trafficking Organization Fashion Hope
"Fashion is about freedom of expression and personality while also bolstering self-confidence and esteem. It is a natural fit for the fashion industry to therefore reach out to those who don't enjoy such freedoms - who are broken, suffering and living a life of shame not of their own choosing. The fashion industry is also well placed to set an example by supporting fair trade supply chains, literally freeing people from slavery around the world. FASHION can indeed provide HOPE," said Paul Myhill, Fashion Hope's advisor and president of Traffic Jam.

Fashion One Foundation is a non-profit organization comprised of fashion and entertainment professionals that are dedicated to protect human and environmental rights. With television as a medium, it hopes to create awareness to issues such as human trafficking, poverty and education.
Fashion Hope launched in May 2011. After looking at ways in which we could use fashion as a vehicle to make a difference, Fashion Hope was born. Fashion Hope builds awareness and raises funds in the fashion industry then partners with NGO's that are doing the frontline work to rescue, and rehabilitate survivors of human trafficking. Involving fashion press, celebrities, designers, local boutiques and other industry experts, we engage a significant audience with the real images and stories of human trafficking.
