The Youth College collaborates with The Salvation Army to promote the concept of intergenerational inclusiveness in the community. Students utilize their knowledge of fashion design and beauty makeup to create stylish images for 15 seniors aged 45 to 85. The elderly are transformed into fashion models, strutting down the runway in specially designed eco-fashion outfits during the 85th Anniversary Celebration of the Central Market. They radiate energy and grace. The students from the Youth College become a bridge connecting the community and the elderly in this project.
DVE (fashion) students utilize unused fabrics collected from The Salvation Army and the fashion industry to upcycle and transform them into fashionable and modern Japanese-style denim jackets.
DVE (Beauty Care) students are responsible for designing hairstyles and makeup, working together to create unique looks for the senior models.
