Event Details

Join us for a night of fashion and philanthropy with a runway show highlighting Heshima Kenya's social enterprise, The Maisha Collective.

Chicago designers will be tasked to create a unique look in just two weeks that incorporates Maisha scarves assigned at random. Prominent members of the Chicago fashion community will judge this Project Runway- inspired competition.

With hosts: Tanja Babich of ABC7 News and Jerome McDonnell from WBEZ Radio as emcees for the night. 

This year, the Heshima Ambassors Board will host an after party to celebrate the event and the young women of the Maisha Collective.

We are honored to partner with Presenting Sponsor, Hogsalt Hospitality, and media sponsors Modern Luxury and Chicago Woman to make this event possible.

Get a sneak peek of the fun by watching our highlights from the 2015 Fashion Challenge.

    Heshima Kenya

    Heshima Kenya is the first and only organization of its kind in Kenya serving the most vulnerable of the world’s refugees – unaccompanied and separated refugee women and girls. Many of the girls we serve have experienced the detrimental effects of war, the loss of their families, and, in many cases, kidnapping, rape, trafficking, unlawful detainment, and torture. At Heshima Kenya, we create and mobilize a social network that empowers girls and women to strive for economic self-sufficiency, allowing them to become leaders in their own right.
