IPSA's 2nd Annual Fair Trade Fashion Show

NYU Wagner’s International Public Service Association is excited to partner with the NYC Fair Trade Coalition to bring local fashion designers who adhere to Fair trade business practices in their production of clothing, jewelry and accessories. Come and learn about these amazing designers, vendors, and watch Wagner students strut their inner model down the runway! Join us for a night of fair trade fashion, food, shopping and fun!

Fair trade is a system of exchange that ensures livable wages to the workers, safe working conditions, and employing environmentally sound company practices. Typically when we think of ‘fair trade’ practices, agricultural products from bananas to coffee come to mind, but fair trade is not just about food. Everything from the clothes we wear to the pens we write with have impacts on the workers who make them.
