Fashion Vie is a nonprofit organization that was inspired by the life and vision of Chuks Collins, a designer whose career began in Nigeria.  His fashion lines have been featured for Fashion Weeks from New York to Canada to Lagos, Nigeria. He also serves as a costume designer for major U.S. film productions. Mr. Chuks received incredible care and support from a number of charitable organizations during his roughest times while suffering deadly kidney failure complications following a car crash that set his soaring fashion career into a two year tailspin. These organizations helped Mr. Chuks heal, access important resources, and begin to rebuild his career.

Collins created Fashion Vie to pay that care and support forward. As an institution that utilizes creative industry to support social justice and worldwide human right issues, Fashion Vie seeks to gather audiences for a contemporary experience of fashion and art, while calling attention to the incredible work of local, national, and international organizations like Housing Works, Turning Point, and our newest partner, Oando Foundation U.S.
