Fashion Girls for Humanity is a non-profit organisation and was founded by Kikka Hanazawa, Julie Gilhart, Miki Higasa and Tomoko Ogura in 2011.

The Council of Fashion Designers of America has teamed up with the charity to raise money for Waves for Water, which will provide relief work.

Having the auction on Charity Buzz is a big deal because it’s international and it’s charity-based,” Miki said to WWD. “This will be the first time we will be featuring fashion experiences that will include international designers.”
