Intro Title
Student models will be joined on the runway by cancer patients helped by The Verma Foundation.

The creations of notable independent New York fashion designers—with a focus on those of color who design for all gender representations, sizes and ages—will be highlighted on the runway at LIM’s annual student-produced Fashion Show on April 19 at 6 p.m. at The Glasshouse (660 12th Ave.) in Manhattan.

Each year, LIM provides students with a hands-on educational experience planning and producing a professional-level fashion show. While they do not design the apparel featured in the show, students are responsible for every other aspect of the production including styling, marketing, set design, event planning, and more.

The independent NYC designers who will be showcased at the event, which is themed Fashion Unleashed: Embracing the Elements, will be Carlton Jones, Cheval, Karl Kani, Pedro Juan, Terry Singh, Adrienne Landau, and Melesia Robinson.

Student models will be joined on the runway by cancer patients who have been helped by the Verma Foundation. The foundation provides free cap wigs to those dealing with cancer-related hair loss and was co-founded by Natasha Verma, a cancer survivor and Fox5NY News Anchor who is serving as one of the honorary chairs for the LIM Fashion Show.

Additional Honorary Chairs include Elliot Carlyle, Founder of CurrentLY Global and a fashion and jewelry industry consultant; Kirsten Ferguson, Peloton Fitness Instructor; and Emme, American supermodel and founder of the True Beauty Foundation.

To date, sponsor and partner organizations for the event include: Alice + Olivia, Nine West/Authentic Brands Group, Boxed Water, Curl Daddy, Empire Beauty Schools, Fashinnovation, Fashion Designers of Latin America, Free People, Kendra Scott, The Lions Talent Management Company, RAREculture, Vera Bradley and the Verma Foundation.
