The lighting will take place on Thursday February 25, 2021 and will be lit starting at dusk and will shine all evening throughout the night until dawn. This lighting is for one evening only so we want to create as much awareness around it in advance so New Yorkers know to look for the building shining brightly in the Pan African colors in honor of Black History Month to foster celebration, pride and acknowledgment of the Black Community’s Achievements throughout history.

At Fashion For All Foundation, we believe, every talented and qualified person should have access to all roles in the fashion industry no matter their background, racial makeup, size or physical ability. The Fashion Industry can take the lead and serve as stand up examples by setting the trend of diversity, representation and inclusion. It is our hope that by doing so, we the fashion community will spark a revolution and the world will follow the trend of Unity.
