Knowledge is Power
In an effort to make a difference in this world, many people gathered last night at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising for Room to Read's 10th anniversary. Local designers were invited to create wearable art t-shirts with the theme "Literacy and Gender Equality". Designers had two things in common: a plain white t-shirt and a desire of helping kids in developing countries. For my creation I used ordinary materials like pencils and alphabet blocks to create an outfit that reminds us of the royalty. My idea was to make people realize how powerful women can be if they have the same opportunities as men. At the end t-shirts were auctioned off and 100% of the money goes to Room to Read's programs of education in 3rd world countries. Such an honor to be part of this great cause!
