Janna's NYC Fashion Showcase

Hello and thank you for even considering donating! I am raising money to help fund my very first fashion show in New York City. If you know me personally, then you know that this is an absolute dream come true for me. I have dreamt of becoming a fashion designer my entire life. From modeling in fashion shows at the age of 5 to learning how to sew at the age of 10, I knew this was God's purpose for my life. I began directing fashion shows in college and realized nothing made me happier. This year I relocated to New York City and God opened and closed many doors for me this year. I am blessed to now have the opportunity to be a featured designer in the RAW Artists fashion showcase. This organization was created for creatives like myself who need a platform to showcase their talents while also providing exposure. The showcase tours 60 cities every year and New York is one of the largest shows, as you can imagine. The competition is much higher to showcase in New York and I was selected and scouted by the organization based on my previous work. While the opportunity is free, there are so many expenses that go into creating your own show and I would greatly appreciate any donation you are prompted to give. Your donation would help fund fabric, supplies, make up services, and travel expenses that accrue as I create my collection. I am also required to sell a certain number of tickets to the show but while there are many people who support my dream, only a handful of them reside in NYC. Therefore, I ask and would be so grateful if you could donate anything to this cause. Thank you so much for reading and thank you so much for your support!
