Help Fashion Aid A Cause: Heshima Kenya’s Fashion Challenge

Heshima Kenya is a women's and young girl's nonprofit community in Nairobi, Kenya, dedicated to providing a safe home and assistance to refugees in the region. Through the video below, you catch a glimpse of Heshima Kenya's community and purpose. If you'd like to contribute to this astonishing project, join Lara Miller, Billy Dec, and NBC Chicago's Marcus Riley this coming Tuesday, July 26, for a fashion challenge and benefit. Local designers were provided with one stunning scarf each (made by the women of Heshima Kenya), and they must design an outfit based on the scarf. Watch them compete, and know that your ticket price is serving the best cause possible.

Heshima Kenya Fashion Challenge, Room 1520 West Fulton Street (between Laflin St & Justine St); 312-952-1520.
