When Fashion Meets Philanthropy

For fashion designer Linda Rowe Thomas, her love for fashion is only matched by her passion for philanthropy. Each year, she seamlessly blends these passions through the annual fashion fundraiser, a heartwarming event aimed at raising funds to support burn survivors.

Celebrating 7 Years of Impact

Since March 2017, Designing Hope has celebrated its 7th year, becoming the cornerstone fundraiser for supporting Arkansas Children’s Hospital’s burn unit and various community projects aiding burn survivors in Central Arkansas and beyond.

Partnering for Progress

The Designing Hope Foundation has forged partnerships with leading burn centers across the United States, ensuring that programs for all survivors continue to flourish. Each year, the Designing Hope fashion show dazzles attendees with the latest Romás by Linda Rowe Thomas collection, alongside music, local boutique fashion, silent auctions, and even the participation of local firemen setting the runway ablaze—all to benefit burn survivors.

Fashion for a Cause

Infusing her passion for fashion with community service, Linda Rowe Thomas pledges a portion of all retail sales and fundraising efforts to support this noble cause. The Designing Hope Foundation’s commitment to philanthropy continues to leave a lasting impact on the fashion industry, engaging the community in acts of generosity and compassion. Contributions to the Designing Hope Foundation are tax-deductible, making it easier for supporters to join the Fashion and Philanthropy Movement and spread hope to those in need.
