The main things I wanted to share with you in this update were the Maseno Project II Garments of Hope fashion show and charity auction which took place on the 1st of May and the forthcoming CCD Fashion Show on the 10th of May.
The Maseno Project helps to support children in the western Kenya orphanage Nest Rescue Center and, as this is such a wonderful charity and such a good cause, I wanted to sponsor an event and donate a unique piece of jewelry to be auctioned in aid of the children. The event on the 1st of May was a huge success and featured a CCD model – Naiyah Dreamscape – as well as the event management skills of Marian Rexen. Nani Wrigglesworth, SterlingZen Harbour, Latex Zemlja and me were all in the audience to support as well and it was a lot of fun to see so many beautiful designs and our friends modelling them too. The show featured some of my jewelry designs from CCD as well as the work of a number of other designers (MariaElena Barbosa, Digit Darkes, Blacklace, Alphamale, Nonna Hedges, Sherona DeGroot, Ramona Planer, Naiyah Dreamscape and Z’Vogue design (by Zepher Dibou) but I think the highlight for me was the charity auction which closed the event and raised some serious money for the Maseno Project charity.
More pictures from this event can be found here.
I designed a unique one-off piece of jewelry which you can see being modelled by Mimmi Boa in the picture above. A generous supporter paid $25000L for Mimmi’s outfit at the end of the auction and I was really proud to be part of this great event and help to raise such a huge sum of money!
Work is also underway on a CCD fashion show planned for the 10th of May at the Fashion in-Look Institute. CCD Models; Nani Wrigglesworth, Sheyla Mills, Shaz Bashly and PinkAngelStar69 String will model my jewelry and dress designs and the event is being organised by our Model Manager Naiyah Dreamscape who has done a great job organising the models and writing the script. The event starts at 11:00 AM on Sunday the 10th of May at the Fashion in-Look Institute and I hope you can all be there.
