Events: Humans Who Design

Posted: Aug 10 2016

Tonight I'll be at FIT for the Humans Who Design event, featuring photographs of 20 pioneering designers, including Tara St. James (STUDY NY), Daniel Silverstein and more. The exhibit opens tonight with a panel discussion on Making It In NY.


Humans Who Design is a community and a networking platform for fashion designers whose work acts as a catalyst for positive social, humanitarian, and environmental change.

Formed in 2015 by Natalya Nyn and Jessica Wade, the goal of Humans Who Design is to create a ripple effect of good by promoting design as a powerful tool to achieve change.

Humans Who Design believes creative design has the ability to give visual voice, dignity, and positive structure to those without.

The Humans Who Design network brings attention to designers with progressive initiatives to encourage collaborations with nonprofit organizations and other designers to create campaigns, develop products, and collaborate on fundraising and events in order to make the world a better place.
