My good friend Rosario Dawson launched her Studio One Eighty Nine collection with designer Abrima this past Friday (9/5/2014). This also marked Baby Z’s first fashion week experience and she loved every second of it.
Rosario Dawson is currently promoting her new movie “Sin City 2” (in theaters now). The collection was amazing and I had great time all being together with a lot of dancing and African drums.
There was one degree of separation, when Abrima’s nephew and Baby Z attend French school together as well as many play dates in central park. Everything Came together for one great memorable night.
STUDIO ONE EIGHTY NINE is a social enterprise created by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah that consist of creatives that seeks to provide a platform to help promote and curate African and African-inspired content through an ecommerce shopping site, a supporting agency and an artisan produced fashion collection, called FASHION RISING COLLECTION, launched in support of V-Day's One Billion Rising. We focus on creating opportunities for empowerment, education and employment of artisans and creatives.
Together we represent countries all over Africa and its Diaspora. Created by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah, the mission of Studio One Eighty Nine and the idea for Fashion Rising, took shape following a trip with V-Day in February, 2011, through Kenya, Burundi and Rwanda to Bukavu in the Democratic Republic of Congo for the opening of the City of Joy.
