Key North Boutique and T Lee Custom Designer Jewelry are collaborating on a fashion show fundraiser to support and supply school materials for the children of Pokara, Nepal. Proceeds will be donated through Rotary International.
Last year, T Lee Custom Designer Jewelry and Key North Boutique raised $5000 for the Shree Saraswoti Kunja primary school in central Nepal. This year, we again are collaborating in the hopes of raising more money for the long-term sustainability of Nepali school children.
Savvy style expert Grant Whitaker of Whitaker Style will emcee the runway show, with models wearing fashions from Key North Boutique and jewelry from T Lee Custom Designer Jewelry. Key North will feature exclusive women’s clothing and accessory collections from American and International (Venice, Paris, London, Brussels, Munich) designers. Key North has created a local marketplace for organic, sustainable, fair-trade fashions that supports global designers, artisans and workers who are paid a fair wage. T Lee Custom Designer Jewelry will debut new one of a kind pieces and also a new collection of fine jewelry woven in 24kt and palladium. All materials used in T Lee designs are ethically sourced and environmentally friendly.
VIP tickets are available for $100, which includes a reserved seat for the runway show, two $50 gift cards (one each from Key North and T Lee), food and drink, a gift bag filled with contributions from neighborhood businesses like Find furnish, Riddle Room, I like You, Vintage Pearl, Mill City Running, Urban Violet, Bibelot, Mona Williams, Parc boutique, Bona Venture, GH2, and Ambiente. Food and drink will be donated by Gardens of Salonica, Gorhka Palace, Pinku, Lu’s Sanwiches, Red Stag, and Spitz. General admission tickets are available for $10.
