Fashion model Kristina Romanova (Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren, Dolce & Gabanna) and singer-songwriter/lawyer Antoniette Costa (Billboard Classical Charts) founded the Humans of Fashion Foundation to create a platform that guides and connects individuals in the fashion industry who have experienced sexual harassment, abuse, misconduct and assault in the fashion industry with pro bono and subsidized legal professionals, counselors, and support networks. The Humans of Fashion Foundation wants to create a safer workplace for ALL professionals in the fashion industry from models and designers to stylists and makeup artists.

By releasing an application, the "HOFF app" dedicated to real-time advice, Humans of Fashion Foundation hopes to bring a revolutionary approach to address and prevent sexual harassment and abuse in the industry, and create a platform for discussion. By incorporating technology into the platform, it's working to make the industry safer and encourage support between fashion veterans and the younger generation.
