Korto Momolu Designer Video : Africa Fashion Week in New York
Eagerly, but patiently waiting, we’ve finally received our video clip from Africa Fashion Week in New York 2o11 and it was well worth the wait.
This show was extremely action packed beginning with the planning of all of my looks, planning for a finale Wedding for WeTV (which happened during my runway show by the way) and of course the crazed media & press.
So Team Korto Momolu showcased Thursday, July 14th 2011 (last year). I used my collection to represent the transitioning stages of my countries’ social and economic conditions. Brutality against women, which was mainly due to the civil war in Liberia was common, however, because of social leaders and organizations like Armani Liberia, slowly many women are beginning to regain their voice and are being taught skills to establish and restore themselves, their families and country. I’m happy to have showed my collection and further the knowledge of those watching the video about our efforts in restoring Liberia.
It takes a team, it takes time, and it takes passion. Watch the video and see all of these elements sewn together.
