A few months ago I was invited to be part of “RUNWAY TO PERU” event produced by ADOT Productions in collaboration with some of the best Peruvian designers, we will join forces in a one night event to benefit www.hojanueva.org
The fashion show was held at the popular METROPOLIS of Seattle – Washington, and brought some of the most notable fashionistas, art lovers and supporters, whom where blown away by the production of the show and the creativity put on the runway from designers like Augusto Manzanares, Jose Zafra, Privat Collection, Las Polleras de Agus, (ME) Evelyn Brooks Designs.
Through tickets sold, a silent auction program, and money donated from sales done through the art market, Fashion for Conservation – Runway to Peru benefiting Hoja Nueva was able to raise over 15K dollars that will be used for different programs in the Amazons of Peru.
Part of our business mission is to help communities in need, even more so when is about saving our Peruvian Amazons. I have seen first hand that education is a big problem in communities that are isolated, where in small towns there is only one school house that has students from different ages under one roof.
How could they really benefit? Part of the money donated will help to buy educational materials that will advance kids knowledge in the fields of math, language, sciences and environment. This was one of the programs that touched me, as a mompreneur I can’t imagine my kids receiving or being limited to educational material or education in general.
There are many other projects that Hoja Nueva is committed to; and that you could take part in helping SAVE our Peruvian Amazons.
It was a HUGE honor to meet these wonderful designers, producers and supporters, designers who came all the way from Peru to be part of Fashion for Conservation – Runway to Peru in Seattle. I wish you ALL much LUCK & SUCCESS!
Looking forward to working with you again!
Hasta la próxima!
