Kanaval- Fashion and Benefit


 I saw this and thought I would share. It's for a great cause so if you find yourself in the area and if you like this kind of thing you should definitely stop by :)
The fashion and photography is different and interesting
KANAVAL is a fashion installation inspired by the rich tradition of Haitian Carnival. This unique fashion benefit exhibition for Haiti features menswear designer Hvrminn’s latest project. Curated by world-renowned Haitian photographer Marc Baptiste, the KANAVAL collection will be auctioned off, in addition to limited edition photographic prints, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Baby Joseph. Baby Joseph is 10-year-old girl living in Cité Soleil, an impoverished commune in Port-au-Prince. Marc Baptiste met Baby Joseph on a recent trip to Haiti, where he learned that she is in immediate need of a complex reconstructive surgery. As a young child, Baby Joseph’s right hand was badly burned and she did not receive proper medical attention at the time. Her condition is worsening and she needs immediate medical attention to avoid losing her hand altogether. The money raised from KANAVAL will go directly to Baby Joseph to cover the cost of her x-rays, medical evaluation by a team of  New York doctors in Croix de Bouquet, and follow-up surgical procedures.
