Fashion Trust U.S. awards Charles Harbison and MoAnA Luu with industry grants.

According to its site, the Fashion Trust U.S. aims to help designers “build their label into a thriving global brand.” Amid industry challenges surrounding access and capital funding, the Trust steps into the gap for young creators and innovators.

Fashion Trust U.S. is the brainchild of Tania Fares, who initially pulled together industry friends, including celebrity stylist Law Roach, to help build a buzzy board of directors and develop grant opportunities for participants. The organization held its first awards dinner in 2023, attracting celebrities like Ciara, Tracee Ellis Ross, Paula Abdul, and Demi Moore

This year’s soiree built on the previous one with another star-studded stylish guest list. Cynthia Erivo, who slayed in black, presented the Trusts’ Jewelry Award to MoAnA Luu of ManLuu. The brand honors the French West Indies using woven rattan, beading, and stones. 

Oscar-winner Da’Vine Joy Randolph presented Charles Harbison of the Harbison Studio with the Ready-to-Wear Award. Da’Vine’s award-winning stylists, Wayman and Micah, joined her for the presentation. 

Harbison is a celebrity favorite who designs for the over-the-top woman who embraces her femininity and flair. He’s dressed Chloe Bailey, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Victoria Monet, and more. 

The night’s winners also took home grants of between $100,000 and $200,000 to help them continue to build their footprint and influence in the industry.
