Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show

2017 SBFS Event header

35th Annual 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 125-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 College fashion students.  The event raises vital scholarship funding, as many of these promising young artists and designers (80% of whom require financial aid) would be unable to complete their education without this support.
