Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show

Each year, the Benefit black-tie gala features Los Angeles' largest fashion runway show with more than 70 professional models in 175-plus fashion designs for women, men and juniors. Approximately 800 guests—a creative crowd of leaders in fashion and entertainment—get a glimpse of the future of fashion design from those who invent it—Otis fashion students!  In 2013, more than $1 million was raised for student scholarships. Many of these promising young artists and designers (80% of whom require financial aid) would be unable to complete their education without this support.
