DFW Teen Fashion Week® is a philanthropic event dedicated to improving the quality of life while boosting positive self-image of today’s teen/young adults through fashion. The 2017 will highlight and bring preventive awareness to a subject that is so very delicate – Teen Suicide. We understand that we must actively partake in preventive care to ensure the mental health, wealth and success teens and young adults. Since 2014 there has been a global increase in Teen Suicide ranging from ages 15-24, which is our demographic.
With our platform, we have the opportunity to reach and impact thousands of young adults in the DFW Metroplex. Our ultimate goal is to Help and Educate while providing Resources and Encouragement to our youth which has allowed us to cross paths and partner with the Grant Halndation Foundation, a Non Profit orgnization. Grant Halliburton Foundation works to strengthen the network of mental health resources for children, teens and young adults; promote better mental health; and prevent suicide. The Foundation provides mental health education, training and support to more than 21,000 students, educators, parents and professionals annually.
DFW Teen Fashion Week® is powered by ICONIQ Teen Development/ICONIQ Cares, a 501c3 non profit organization that brings together a diverse network of leaders to effect positive change through youth empowerment in our community.
Our Charities: DFW Teen Fashion Week® gives back the gift of “APPROACHING LIFE WITH CONFIDENCE & STYLE” to young ladies and gentlemen everywhere. We Sponsor the following Charities:
Divine Girls Home is a safe nurturing and loving environment for young ladies to receive love, encouragement, education and skills to become self-sufficient in society. The owner of this organization is Beverly Chavers-Foster.
