OFW- Walk the Truth chairty gala

Africa's Chidren-Africa's future brought together fashion and passion with its Walk the Truth Charity Gala.  The event opened with live singing from an outstanding choir, followed by informative slides on HIV/AIDS and how the organization is helping those in need.  The inspiration concept of this runway show was that children were asked what HIV/AIDS means to them.  Based on their answers, designers were asked to create garments revolving around those themes.  Themes included Walk for Life, Walk for Hope, and Walk for Death. The garments created were both beautiful and inspiring.  Pieces reflecting Life glimmered with colour and delicacy as pieces that reflected Death brought on a more somber and dark veil.  Overall, I was extremely pleased to have seen such creativity with the pieces, especially considering the great cause that they are all working towards.

Visit to bid on these fabulous items & more.  All proceeds go to ACAF's support and education programs.
