Project Runway

No, I am not going to be a contestant on next season…but I do love Project Runway. I have been watching it since the beginning. Even though the past few season has been somewhat underwhelming I have learned so much from it. I started dabbling in fashion design after watching the first season, I would watch them drape and mimic what they were doing. I am still proud of the first dress I draped. It's no where near perfect and has a lot of techniques missing but it’s still wearable!

Now, I am sure you are wondering why I am writing about Project Runway now. Drum roll please…

Korto Momolu, the runner up on Season 5 Project Runway will be joining Amani Ya Juu!


How did this come about you ask? Well we have another amazing addition to our design team Stephanie. She is such a lovely women of God and has been such a blessing to the Amani Liberia. She is the sweetest person and is so ambitious! She has been able to achieve so much in the short time working with Amani. She has worked with Korto’s agent and they have agreed to design for the March fashion show in Liberia. And to top that, she has agreed to go to Columbus, OH on Feb 26th to show her latest collection to raise funds for Amani Liberia.

I remember watching Project Runway and seeing Korto reading her Bible in the morning, and I thought “Now there is a designer I can look up to, her designs are beautiful, and her heart is gold.” Not only is Korto Liberian, she has a heart to bring redemption to her country. Amani Ya Juu is so blessed to have her, and I am so blessed to play whatever part in this.
