HESHIMA KENYA EVENTS

2015 | Heshima Kenya Fashion Challenge

 

Heshima Kenya’s Fashion Challenge celebrates refugee girls and young women, highlighting their work in the Maisha Collective, Heshima Kenya’s social enterprise in which they produce the unique, hand-dyed scarves that will be featured in event fashion show.

Designers will receive two Maisha Collective scarves chosen at random, and will have just two weeks to design one original women’s look and one accessory. Looks will be judged based on originality, wearability, demonstration of designer personality, and construction quality.

Let the best design win!

Join us November 12th,  6:00-10:00 p.m.

Doors open at 6pm

Fashion show begins at 7:30pm.

Room1520 in Chicago's West Loop. You can purchase tickets here
