HOPE FOR EMILIA is an exciting event from July 22 to August 9, 2012 including a Summer Fashion Fair, fashion shows, an art expo and entertainment events to fundraise for the victims of earthquake in Emilia, Italy.
As most of the world is aware, the northern region of Italy has been hit by devastating earthquakes since May. The impact of these earthquakes has been terrible: 26 people died, and thousands are homeless, living in tents. The whole economy of the country was brought to its knees.
“Hope for Emilia” aims to fundraise to help the many victims of the earthquakes: 100% of the funds raised with this event will be donated to victims of the earthquake through the bank account opened by Emilia-Romagna region. At the fashion fair many designers will be supporting the cause by offering an exclusive item, the full proceeds of which will be donated to Hope for Emilia.
Fashion shows highlighting the exclusive items are planned for July 29th and August 5th.
There will also be an Art Exhibition starting on August 3rd, at which artistic creations from the grid’s most accomplished artists will be on display and available for purchase.
Hope for Emilia will open officially at 1pm SLT on July 22nd, 2012.
Shown here - the Hope for Emila exclusive gown from Desir. I'll be bringing you more when the fair opens!
