As you may know, April was Sexual Assault Awareness Month. A walk across the Brooklyn Bridge happened on April 29th + Brooklyn Fashion Week was there championing the cause. The walk was a way to spread awareness of a serious problem + take a stand against Domestic Violence.
Denim Day Story with Fashion Week Brooklyn
We took to the streets of Williamsburg to raise awareness for the up-coming Denim Day NYC with Fashion Week Brooklyn. See photos below!
My shoot in New York for Fashion Week Brooklyn was pretty awesome. We shot in Soho, Manhattan + in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The Denim Day Campaign is in support of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. On 29 April 2015, models, makeup artists, hairstylists, bloggers + fashionistas will walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to City Hall styled in denim for the cause! City Hall will host the official commencement speech. Brooklyn Fashion Week will be held on 25-28 June this year, with one lucky designer showcasing his or her collection on the runway!
I had a great meeting with Rick Davy + Michael Johnson of Fashion Week Brooklyn at Starbucks in New York. I am their South African ambassador. You can read about the programs they offer young designers in South Africa to show their collections in New York here as well as about their events in New York + Johannesburg.
