Fashion means different things to different people such as clothes, bags, shoes and so many other fashion intricate pieces. The big question who makes these items, how was it done and who crafted them for you to desire to purchase them. That’s were mastery of the craft makers come in. You will be shocked that some of them are made by people with special needs.
St. Eve West African Fashion Week is at it again, this year we want everyone to partake in this project. We want it to be interactive, we are taking it to your door step and we want you to come out for fashion.
The physically challenged in our society have a lot to offer in this industry as much as the fashionistas, why do we say that this? We see potentials were everything seem bleak. As a result, we have decided to give funds to these special set of people but most importantly is knowing that a lot of them have the passion, skill sets and gifts to be fashion designers.
The fashion industry has so many arms i.e cloth making, photography, retailing, pattern making, beads, fabric embellishment, ironing, to mention a few. In these various aspect we have identified that our brothers and sisters who are physically challenged can be given life changing opportunities from which they’ll earn a living and possibly become the next super star in the industry.
SEWAFW is happy to announce that it will be giving 12% of the proceeds from this event to Charity through various NGO’s including those that cater for people who are physically challenged. One of such organizations is the BETHESDA School/Home for the blind. We recognise that some who are challenged in their sight there are making bags and other fashion items and we are happy to partner with them also for this course.
We welcome you to come into their world and join us to expose these rare talents to the world and make Africa great with our unique rich art and cultural fashion.
Welcome to the Charity world of SEWAFW.
