The fashion designers are from Fashion Art Toronto (FAT). FAT is a non-profit organization that explores fashion and art collections. Fashion designers in the 2015 Fashions for Passions show are Fiona Veronicaf, Garvin Garcia, Tanushree Pande, and Dianna DiNoble.

The gala also gave the Icons of Empowerment award to Ms. Winnie Ng, Ms. Loly Rico and Ms. Susan Langdon. The award is in recognition of their passion and dedication in furthering the status of women and girls.

“We intend to impact more people than ever before,” says designer Thien LE, co-chair of the Gala. “Every year, our level of impact has increased. It encourages us to push for more, so that we can continue to break the stigma around violence, and the trafficking of women and girls.”
