According to Sabastian, a portion of the Skid Row Fashion Week sales benefit the homeless and hiring displaced individuals to work within the factory that makes the clothes. And the company’s website also states received funds propel the “transformation of SkidRow, Los Angeles from a space synonymous with neglect to a beacon of hope and healing.”
