Heshima Kenya 2018 Fashion Challenge X: Decade of Impact

| May 1, 2018 | Parties

Chicago-based international non-profit dedicated to serving refugee girls, RefuSHE, celebrated ten years of impact at their annual gala Fashion Challenge X: A Decade of Impact at the Chicago Cultural Center. Over 250 guests attended the one-of-a-kind runway show featuring looks created with fabric made in RefuSHE's social enterprise, a program that fosters leadership and business skills through the design and production of hand-dyed fabrics and scarves. A panel of four Chicagoland fashion experts evaluated each runway look designed by Chicago designers and selected Rakan Shams Aldeen as the winner. All proceeds from the evening benefitted RefuSHE in their mission to empower refugee girls.
