Heshima Kenya Fashion Challenge
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. Heshima Kenya’s Fashion Challenge celebrates refugee girls and young women, highlighting their work in the Maisha Collective, Heshima Kenya’s social enterprise in which they produce the unique, hand-dyed scarves that will be featured in event fashion show.
Designers will receive two Maisha Collective scarves chosen at random, and will have just two weeks to design one original women’s look and one accessory. Looks will be judged based on originality, wearability, demonstration of designer personality, and construction quality.
Let the best design win!
