February 23, 2009 § 1 Comment
As New York Fashion Week came to an end last Friday night, Project Runway finalist Korto Momolu debuted her Fall 2009 Collection at The Macdella Cooper Foundation (MCF) Fashion Week After Party Benefit Auction at Nikki Beach Midtown in New York City. The purpose of the event was to raise funds for the MCF Academy for Orphans and Abandoned Children, opening in Liberia in 2010. In the end, the foundation raised almost $50,000, all of which will go towards the construction of the academy, which will be built by acclaimed architect, Winka Dubbeldam of Archi-Tectonics. Korto, who is from Liberia, said she was honored to unveil her collection at an event that supports a cause that is so dear to her heart. Here, a few of my favorite pieces from her collection!
