SynesthASIA

SynesthASIA is a student-run organization that puts on a sophisticated and intricately choreographed fashion show each year. This show is dedicated to raising funds for sustainable development and poverty alleviation projects throughout Asia. SynesthASIA is a play on words of the word “synesthesia”, which is a neurological phenomenon that results in a blurring of the senses. In this sense, SynesthASIA is meant to be a fashion show that stimulates the senses in a blend of charity, fashion, art, and dance.
