The last and only time I walked a fashion runway was back in 2014 for Dare to Wear Love, a charity that uses the power of fashion for good. It collects funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which puts money into grassroots organizations in Africa to fight the AIDS pandemic.
Here I was in my Susan Dicks‘ creation. 😉
This year, I took part in the Dare to Wear Love Challenge again and raised $1775! Thank you so much to everyone who supported me. ♥
From all the challengers, four of us were chosen to walk the runway at the gala on May 12th, and I won one of the spots! The fabulous Farley Chatto is designing my dress this time, and he’s calling me his “Gala Seductress.” Here’s his sketch of my dress, which he considers ‘naughty goodness.’
I love it!
I’m proud to continue supporting this worthy cause, and I hope you will too. There are still $150 tickets available which gives you access to an amazing Silent Auction, cocktails, the incredible fashion show, and a rocking after-party! Dare to Wear Love is on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, so connect to them to see all the latest posts and pictures.
It’s a charity event like no other, and this year, Stephen Lewis will be there to introduce the Foundation’s LGBTQ initiative and much more. He’s considered one of the most captivating and eloquent keynote speakers, and his speech is sure to inspire. Renowned Ugandan LGBTQ activist, Frank Mugisha, will also take to the stage.
Join me if you can — fashion for fun, hope, and a great cause.
In the meantime, enjoy the music of the great David Bowie, an icon of fashion if there ever was one,
Thank you so much for your support, and have a fashionable week,
