Minika Ko and COPE NYC present KOllision: a collaborative fashion show that envisions the future of female power through fashion, technology, and art. In celebration of International Women's Day and Women's History Month, artists across all mediums will showcase their creations with Minika Ko’s KOVASKY collection as a canvas. These wearable works of art will be shown on the runway and available for purchase in a charity auction.
KOllision will be emceed by refugee turned supermodel, Mari Malek. The event’s fundraising goal is to support Malek's Stand for Education #nopadnoschool campaign. Malek hopes to supply 1000 girls in South Sudan with sustainable menstrual hygiene products. Funding will also go towards designing family rooms for Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York through COPE NYC.
The pre-show party kicks off at 4:30pm. Come sip wine, mingle, and enjoy live music. Meet Mari Malek at HerStory talk and learn how she advocates for children in South Sudan.
