Our mission

Our mission is to fund an early intervention teen relationship program to educate young men and women on the red flags of abusive, manipulative and controlling behaviour.

To assist young people to set healthy boundaries within a relationship, and how to safely ask for help if they find themselves in a threatening situation.

And to equip young people with tools and behavioural techniques they can call on if they find themselves exhibiting unacceptable or unhealthy behaviour within a relationship.


To provide a platform for emerging fashion designers, to drive connections with industry professionals, network with like-minded creatives, grow designer confidence and build pathways to a successful career in fashion.
