The fashion and accessories that will be on display are made in the US and by groups of young entrepreneurs supported by AfricStyle Initiatives in West and South Africa. They will feature authentic print fabrics and materials.

Proceeds from the fashion show will go toward supporting the organization’s overseas partners in their business and ministries.
