Want to combine your fashion obsession with, like, something good for humanity? Get on down to the Misión Charity Runway, an event showcasing Australian and international designers to raise funds for a well-worthy organisation, the Misión México Children’s Refuge.
Misión México provides a loving, safe home for children of all ages who have been abused, neglected, orphaned, and abandoned, and who are from backgrounds of extreme poverty. The program is run by two Australian parents from Noosa who have dedicated their lives to care for over 40 children on a permanent basis.
Hosted by human communications specialist Rum Charles, and Miss Humanity Australia Cleo Howman, the runway features designs by Cholita Bonita, Mijanou Swimwear and Karlie Gartner, along with many more.
Come and show some love for talented designers and kids in need.
