Fashion Fights Cancer

 

Fashion Fights Cancer Master Classes discovers and provides for crucial needs in the cancer battle and recovery process. During the workshops, patients talk about the lack of information, post-traumatic experiences and fears. Luxury Next Season proudly supports Fashion Fights Cancer. Our founder Penny Karabey is board member of this amazing non-profit organization. Founded by Ty Canty, the non-profit organization offers cancer patients and survivors the unique opportunity to express themselves through fashion- and- design disciplines and, in the process, allows them to communicate their experiences, fears, and the reality of living with cancer.
