This past Saturday December 10, I attended the Laugh, Live, Love: Healing 29 year old Ms. Kemi Ogunsakin who suffers from Colonrectal cancer, fundraiser and fashion show featuring designs from Aso Damisi. The event was put together by some of Kemi’s closest friends and strangers who heard about her story and wanted to help her financially. Even though she wasn’t physically present (Kemi is in India undergoing cancer treatments due to lack of health insurance in the US ) her spirit was felt through out the evening. The event raised over $10,000 for Kemi. You can still donate and help heal kemi here.
Also, to lend their support and featured was the sister designer duo, Mo and Tifa of Aso Damisi (ah-SHAW DAH-me-see) designs. They are hot off the press from their successful and much talked about debut at the Philadelphia Fashion Week. Before the show I went exclusively behind the scenes to get a sense of how the ladies work, chatted up with the models, many of whom model for Aso Damisi at Philly Fashion Week. I had a blast with the sister duo, and the models were professional as always. Thanks Ladies
