Fashion A Better World


Hello!  How has everyone’s week/weekend been? For me , this week was filled with exams, rehearsals and no sleep.  But the weekend is here and it’s going great so far and I don’t want it to end.

I am really excited for this  post! Last week in the Pit ( a sunken courtyard that is a popular location for student gathering) two Fair trade designers held a fashion show  called “Fashion A Better World”. The show was completely student-run, and featured collections from SymbologyMamafrica and musical collaboration from Beat Making Lab.

Models walked in tune with music provided by Beat Making Lab which is a Global Initiative started by a  UNC professors Pierce Freelon and  Stephen Levitin (aka Apple Juice Kid). Beat making Lab’s mission is”one of cultural exchange. We collaborate with cultural centers, connect youth to global audience, and contribute equipment and training.”

Check out the songs that the models walked to:
