LOS ANGELES, CA (June 24, 2013) – In the spirit of giving, Project Ethos, Slater Model Management, Always Awake and Sebastian Professional will host “Fashion Speaks“ benefiting No Right Brain Left Behind on Wednesday June 26th, 2013 at Emerson Theatre (7080 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028).

It’s an honor to work with a team that believes and shares these values with me, bringing this project to life.” – Joshua Washington, Creative Director of Fashion Speaks

As stated by the founders of No Right Brain Left Behind: “Creativity is the #1 leadership trait of the future. And nowhere is creativity more important than in today’s classrooms. But that’s where it’s lacking the most. Teachers can’t prepare kids for 21st century problem-solving while working in a 19th century school system. We need to re-instill the creativity that education has lost.”
