Simmons’s brand new $1 million scholarship fund, which aims to underwrite scholarships at the Fashion Institute of Technology across all disciplines, but will also fund students at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) and RushTeens (a segment of an art-focused philanthropic initiative founded by her ex-husband, Russell Simmons), empowering young talent through education and enabling them with opportunities that even she, scooped off the playground for decidedly more fabulous ends, didn’t have, including an internship program with KLS Collection, her soon-to-be-launched New York brand.
“This is like wish fulfillment on my end, to tap into that formal education,” Simmons says, “I never had someone put money into my career or my business—it’s very tough out there, and it will never get any easier!” The designer hopes that the fund will embolden industry leaders to ask how to give back to encourage the next generation.
“For me, there’s so many young people who I feel like don’t have a voice,” she says. “I hope these scholarships will give access to that untapped talent, to tell the next Jason Wu Alexander Wang or Narciso Rodriguez that we believe in them.” And what could be more fabulous than that?
Well this is nice to see that she is plugging back monies into the next generation of fashion.

Michael Dunn will spend the rest of his life behind bars for the murder of unarmed teen Jordan Davis!
NBC News reports:
A Florida man convicted of first-degree murder for shooting a teenager to death over loud music was sentenced to life without parole Friday.
Michael Dunn, 47, was convicted of killing Jordan Davis, 17, in November 2012 after he shot into a SUV of four teenagers 10 times when an argument broke out over loud music coming from the teens’ vehicle.
Dunn was sentenced to an additional 90 years in prison for three attempted murder convictions and another 15 years for firing into an occupied vehicle.
“Our justice system works. This case demonstrates that our justice system does work,” said Judge Russell Healey at the sentencing.
Dunn was found guilty on three counts of second-degree attempted murder in January, but a mistrial was declared on the first-degree murder charge.
A jury in early October found Dunn, who is white, guilty of murdering Davis, who was black.
Testimony during the sentencing, including a statement by Davis’ father, Ron Davis, lasted about an hour.
Prosecutors did not pursue the death penalty, according to NBC South Florida.
