Fashion with a Cause: Empowering Survivors at Fashion For Cancer

Cancer can take a toll, but hope and beauty can endure. Fashion For Cancer (FFC), a movement led by inspiring fashion model and entrepreneur Ong Bee Yan (better known as @grey_evolution) is back for its second year, aiming to raise a record-breaking S$200,000 for cancer research and patient support.

Driven by her experience caring for her son, Rong, through cancer, Yan envisioned a platform to celebrate the strength and resilience of survivors.

Watch Yan and Rong’s story here:

In 2023, that vision became a reality with a powerful fashion show featuring cancer survivors as models. This year, FFC invites you to be a part of something extraordinary.

Witness Strength on the Runway

The centrepiece of FFC 2024 is the Charity Fashion Show on 31 August at The Westin Singapore Grand Ballroom. Imagine an afternoon filled with high tea, captivating performances, and the highlight – a runway showcase where cancer survivors take centre stage.

Witness their stories unfold as they strut their stuff in confidence, inspiring hope and reminding us that beauty shines even after adversity. Tickets are at S$180 (excluding Eventbrite tax) and can be purchased on Eventbrite.
