Dresses for Haiti is ready to bring fashion, charity, and art all in one night! Dresses for Haiti will be launching their “Little Dresses for Haiti” project which will raise money so the organization can make handmade dresses for young girls in Haiti. As well as showcasing fabulous dresses on the runway that inspire creativity and raise awareness about Haitian culture and history.
The show will feature two fashion segments:
1) Express Yourself: Summer Love. In this segment designers were asked to make any dress their creativity could render. Each designer will be showing two looks on the runway.
2) Ayti Ma Cherie. This is an installation piece in which models will act as standing art. Each dress embodies an aspect of Haitian history, geography, or culture. Designer were asked to pick a source of inspiration and design a dress based off of that inspiration. These sources of inspiration included everything from Carnival to folklore and nature to Neg Mawoon.
Food and drinks are included in the ticket price.
