Design Architecture Senior High Scholarship
In support of the next generation of young designers, Cosabella awards a yearly scholarship to a senior designer from Design and Architecture Senior High School’s student-run fashion show. This competition gives students the opportunity to have their designs produced and sold on an international level. A percentage of the proceeds of the students' design is awarded to them to support their continued education. The 2016 winner is Amanda Leon who designed the Amelie collection which will be available in stores this upcoming Spring.
DASH holds a special place in the hearts of the Cosabella family as Guido Campello, CEO, is a proud alumnus of the school. “This is an incredible opportunity to give back, not only to my high school but to the industry as a whole. We want to encourage the next generation to be passionate and get excited about what they are doing. These students are the future of the fashion industry,” said Guido.
Design and Architecture Senior High is one of the premier high schools in the United States of America. Located in the heart of Miami, Florida's Design District, it has been ranked in the top 20 high schools in the United States by US News.
‘Fashion Targets Breast Cancer’ Initiative
Cosabella has partnered with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), a foundation that raises both funding and public awareness, internationally. A percentage of sales from the Never Say Never Happie Bralette in the color Deep Ruby will be donated to the charitable initiative. The Happie is a front closure bralette designed for optimal comfort, support, and compression for post-operative patients.
To date, nearly $55 million has been granted to breast cancer charities worldwide from CFDA Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaigns.
Each year Cosabella supports the fight against breast cancer by designing a special breast cancer awareness collection. A percent of sales of this collection is donated to our breast cancer awareness partner Bra-ha-ha ®.
Bra-ha-ha ® is an organization that promotes and raises awareness about breast health, by supporting local breast cancer centers in spreading breast cancer prevention through mammography and early detection awareness. “A seriously uplifting experience,” Bra-ha-ha ® brings together people from all walks of life - everyone from men, women, and children to seniors and major international designers, and offers them a platform so communities can celebrate the stories, the survivors and the spirit of those working to promote breast health.
