We don't always get behind-the-scenes photos from events, but photographer Nancy Valladolid did a fantastic job of capturing the activity throughout the afternoon and evening leading up to our Culture Without Borders fundraising gala, which raised money for the Pan-African Association and which took place at The Ivy Room. Find out more about the event HERE.
With nearly 20 adult and children models, many of whom are refugees directly affected by the work of the organization, there was a lot that needed to happen the afternoon of the gala to get everyone fitted into the clothes they would be wearing and to have hair and make-up finalized. Four amazing hair stylists and make-up artists volunteered their time and talents to do incredible work! A huge thanks to Milian Bonillo, Kate Johnson Artistry, Tricia Davis and Kendyl Beauty for all they did to put together the looks. Fashion designers Joquette Boutique and Akese Stylelines showed off their unique pieces in the fashion show.
