INTERNATIONAL FASHION CONTEST
Leonard Foundation exists to reveal the true gospel of Jesus Christ and glorify Him through fashion.
We stir fashion designers to use the Bible for their inspiration and, in turn, spark new fashion trends that make a positive impact on our culture.
We are sponsoring an international fashion competition that motivates and supports talented fashion designers to create God-inspired designs to be revealed to the press and buyers at DC Fashion Week in Washington DC in September 2018.
