In the UK area? Looking for a way to give back and learn about an awesome organization empowering women? Then make your way over to Spark this weekend! Spark is an event brought to you by UK based organization Mayamiko. Mayamiko empowers women in Malawi suffering from the HIV virus through skills training and education, training them in tailoring and sewing so they can produce garments for UK designers or begin their own businesses, creating better futures for themselves and their families.
The Event ‘Spark’ will feature a night of up-and-coming ethical and sustainable designers, musicians, performers and artists who are joining forces to raise money for Mayamiko. All funds made from Spark will go towards building a skills and production centre in Malawi, where currently all trainees learn and work outdoors.
The fashion showcase will include, Mayamiko Designed, African Fashion Week rising star MIA by Mia Nisbet, Fair & True, Here Today Here Tomorrow styled by Bunmi and AFOL Milan Fashion School with shoes by Beyond Skin.
