Fashion Challenge 2017.jpg

Join us for a night of fashion and philanthropy with a runway show highlighting Heshima Kenya's social enterprise, The Maisha Collective.

Chicago designers will be tasked to create a unique look that incorporates Maisha scarves assigned at random. Prominent members of the Chicago fashion community will judge this Project Runway- inspired competition.

With hosts: Tanja Babich of ABC7 News and Jerome McDonnell from WBEZ Radio as emcees for the night. 

This year, the Heshima Ambassors Board will host an after party to celebrate the event and the young women of the Maisha Collective.

We are honored to partner with Presenting Sponsor, Hogsalt Hospitality, and media sponsors Modern Luxury and Chicago Woman to make this event possible.
