The 5th Annual Heshima Kenya Fashion Challenge

| May 15, 2017 | Parties

Heshima Kenya, a Chicago non-profit dedicated to serving refugee girls, celebrated fashion and philanthropy at their signature event, The 5th Annual Heshima Kenya Fashion Challenge. At the Chicago Cultural Center, over 250 guests attended a one-of-a-kind runway show featuring looks from fourteen Chicago designers who were tasked to create a unique runway design in just two weeks by incorporating scarves from the Maisha Collective, Heshima Kenya’s social enterprise that fosters leadership and business skills for refugee girls through the design and production of hand-dyed fabrics.
