Just one week ago the some members of the Yaarah Schools team were waking up after wondering “Is it all really over already?” Of course we were thinking about FUSIONITE which was held on the Monday 6th of September at the exclusive Avalon venue in Shoreditch.
FUSIONITE was our first major fundraising event with a mix of talented fashion designers collections on show including Funke Bello, Mia by Davinina DeCordova, INTERN CLOTHING by Schenell Stephens, LAMULA ANDERSON, Kayobi Clothing by Kwabena Boateng and N’kya Designs by Sheila Boateng. After the fashion it was time for the crowd to get a real taste of Africa with the Ghanaian food on sale. Options included jallof rice, chicken, fried plantain, samosas and coleslaw! Hmmm! That was some GOOD food! The night then moved onto our live acts, K.Y.M., Ms Darks and JPeace who provided is with an array of electrifying music whilst we digested our food! We ended the live acts with some insightful poetry from Musa Okwonga!
With Remel London as our fabulous host the night went down exceedingly well. Despite the tube strike (not nice London Underground!) and the rain (typical of the weather); Londoners came out and us to raise an amazing £900 for Yaarah Schools.
Your money is going towards providing a learning life line for village children so thank you for all you support and see you next year! Check out some of the pictures from the night HERE!
