Runway for Hope is an innovative and unique collaboration of fashion and refugee issues which are important in today’s international society. By combining them together, we can bring refugee issues close to us. Indeed, Runway for Hope will make us realize that there are millions of people who have lost their homes and that refugee issues are related to our daily life. I hope Runway for Hope will bring people together so as to alleviate the sufferings of refugees in the world.
