When Tommy Hilfiger opened his Los Angeles flagship this spring, it wasn’t just a night dedicated to socializing with his celebrity friends like Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez, and Julianne Hough. The milestone was also the launch of the Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation’s partnership with P.S. ARTS to endow and develop a multi-year arts education curriculum in two Los Angeles schools, Walgrove Elementary School and Grand View Elementary. The Hilfiger-funded program will help students with autism and other special needs achieve their full academic and career potential by providing over 950 students with ongoing, weekly arts classes. “[My wife] Dee and I are passionate about programs that make sure families dealing with issues like lack of access to medical care and education have access to the resources they need,” Hilfiger told InStyle.com, adding that he’s thrilled to help students by providing “dynamic and innovative learning environments.” And his celebrity fans were happy to throw their support behind the cause. ”I love that [Tommy Hilfiger] advocates for children’s education,” Alba told InStyle.com. “I just love that they support those issues.” Visit psarts.org to learn more about the program, and see more exclusive photos from inside the opening on page 110 of May’s new InStyle issue—also available on your iPad, Nook, or Droid tablet.
