Last week, I attended the ARISE Magazine “Made in Africa” Spring 2012 Fashion show during New York Fashion Week. The show featured African designers such as Jewel by Lisa, Lanre Da Silva Ajayi, Tsemaye Binitie, Bunmi Koko, Asibelua, Piere-Antoine Vettorello, and Kluk CGDT. Although it was a night of fashion and glam, we were also reminded about the water crisis that the continent of Africa faces. Saran Kaba Jones, founder of Face Africa, was present. Over 2 billion people die each year because of diseases linked to unclean water. The ARISE Magazine “Made in Africa” Fashion show was not only a great fashion event but a conscious reminder of our responsibility to the world.
Stay tuned…more pictures to come.
