Fashion Meets Mental Health On World Mental Health Day
Posted on October 08, 2020
SECRETS UNVEILED” is a virtual fashion presentation for World Health Day. The event will occur on October 10, 2020 from 5pm-7pm via Youtube. It will feature 15 year old celebrity designer, Egypt Ufele, CEO of Chubiiline and Bullychasers. The fashion show calls for a movement to shift from shame and embarrassment and address the pain within by using OUR VOICE to walk in OUR TRUTH. The true ingredients to the fashion show is to help save more lives, to remind our men and women that it is okay to express themselves and that “YOUR LIFE MATTERS”.
This is an opportunity for the men, women, teen and child models to walk for Mental Health Awareness and for Sexual Abuse Survivors. The fact that models are walking to bring light to many who are dealing with depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, eating disorders is a way to encourage others that they are not alone. “SECRETS UNVEILED” will also pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman by presenting a Wakanda scene and photo exhibition of children and adults who support their hero “Black Panther”. When asked why this fashion show was so important to her, Rip The Stigma Founder Elise Antoine stated "As a two time suicide survivor and sexual abuse survivor, I want this fashion show to shine a light on those who are struggling in silence. To encourage them and let them know that giving up is not an option”.
Fellow designers presenting and showing support for the event are Mary More-Shanghai Fashion,, Gwendolyn Wells-Shulmite Modest Apparel, Nora Seay-Pain In The Seam and Larry Underwood-House of Underwood. The event sponsors are Youme’s Events and 8 At The Table.
Tickets are .00 and available via Eventbrite
