New Yorkers, come together and join New York City’s charitable, social and fashion communities for its annual Housing Works “Fashion for Action” event.

Proceeds from this charity event will support Housing Works’ youth outreach programming, which provides dedicated HIV-prevention and treatment services for young people living with HIV/AIDS or at-risk of infection.
On July 17th, Housing Works Soho Shop will be transformed into an art gallery with a special opening featuring donated pieces from artist friends including Jemima Kirke (Girls), Scooter LaForge and Mel Odom as well as a curated collection donated from generous New Yorkers own collections, volunteers and staff.
