Fashion Power 2019 charity fashion show held in support of YMCA’s annual Strong Communities Campaign Fund and our Girl Child Education Initiative, both of which focus on empowering beneficiaries to reach their full potential while helping them live healthier and happier lives.
This fall, Kaima Designs launched its children’s collection. The event was a huge success and had about 300 guests in attendance. We were honoured by the presence of the Deputy Mayor Shirley McAlary who gave a beautiful welcome address while Tanya Chapman of The Chapman Group, Tunde Apantaku of Dr. Tunde Apantaku Psychiatry Clinic and Li Song of PRUDE Inc delivered heartwarming speeches which resonated with the most of the guests. The speeches bordered around topics such as 'Building an Immigrant Friendly Business Climate: Saint John City Approach, Strategies to Excelling in New Brunswick: An Immigrant’s Perspective and Business Survival Kit for the Entrepreneurial Immigrant.

Fashion Power 2018
Coverdale Centre for Women Edition
It was indeed a night to remember on Thursday, Dec. 13th at the Kent Theatre where the maiden edition of Fashion Power was unveiled. For some of the guests, it was their first African fashion show. The riveting speeches by the Mayor of Saint John, Don Darling, Mary Saulnier-Taylor and Kim Chase of Coverdale Centre for Women hit a home run. The success of the event would not have been achieved without the support of those who believe in the vision and mission of Kaima Designs.

Coverdale Centre for Women caters to the needs of women struggling with conflicts within the justice system, poverty, homelessness, abuse, addiction, physical and mental illness. Women faced with difficult situations access Coverdale services for a variety of reasons at different stages in their lives.
One of the major challenges for the centre is the inability to provide the required funds for women who are ready and willing to transition into rehabilitation centers when it matters most.
Through the fashion show, we intend to raise funds and a greater awareness about this cause.
We all have the power to create lasting change and empower others when we tap into our wells of empathy. Evidence-based statistics show that strong and free women raise healthy children, run functional homes and ultimately, build a better society.
Join us for a night of fun and networking for a good cause. Highlights of the event include the fashion show, African dance performance, silent auction, raffle draw and a light refreshment.
Tickets @ $15 each
