This year JCI Leeds is continuing to support the United Nation Foundation’s Nothing But Nets malaria campaign.
On Saturday the 8th of October JCI Leeds will host Fashion Bites Back, a charity fashion show that will raise awareness and funds to help eradicate malaria by sending bet nets to Africa. A fantastic community teamis working on this project and with in excess of 50 tickets already sold it looks set to be an amazing event!
The community team interviewed a number of fashion designers who are interested in showcasing their designs at the show and were blown away by their talent and creativity and can’t wait to see the designs on the catwalk. The designers will be showcasing a collection of garments that will be modelled with African style make-up and they will also be creating a netted garment, which will fit perfectly with the theme of the event. The team have also hosted a model casting day to gather models for the show.
A raffle with also be held on the night and the team have already secured some amazing prizes, including a little black dress donated by French Connection UK, and ESPA body massage courtesy of the Academy Spa in Harrogate and £100 of vouchers to spend in NEXT. Stay tuned for more exciting prizes to follow.
