What are you launching or hosting and what are your aims?
The refugee diversity fashion show will benefit refugees and asylum seekers as well as community members living in the inner-city areas, especially young people, who never have time or opportunities to showcase their talents and to engage with one another. They will link with other local communities during the Refugee Week Diversity Fashion Show event and designers on the night. We will work together with refugees and asylum seekers to showcase their traditional wear and engage with other communities.
Our aim is to engage some refugees and asylum seekers in the planning, organizing and implementing this one-day event which will entail a diversity fashion show by bringing together diverse communities to celebrate and showcase their rich diversity while celebrating friendship and life in Nottingham.
Customer Review/community views
“This is the first of kinds to fashion event celebrating cultural diversity and bringing different communities in one platform, where we can all dance, eat, listen to cultural music together.”
“ We can wait to see how the event will be as we don’t see stuff like these happen in Nottingham that appreciates different people from different cultures. Culture is a wonderful thing that I love. I encourage people to learn about the culture that comes along with their race and/or ethnicity.”
