Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show

SBFS 2015 Event Header

34th 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 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!  The event raises money 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.

Silent Auction Items
In conjunction with the Fashion Show, a Silent Auction also supports Otis scholarships. Our Silent Auction booklet lists the items for sale.
