The Dr Olivet Buck memorial fashion and sewing academy fundraising page now up
Following my trips to Sierra Leone last year. where I set up a small studio space to have my garments not just produced in Britain but Sierra Leone also (why go so far afield as to India/China etc when the will skill and need here is plenty. I'd rather invest in my roots, in Africa), I was deeply moved and inspired to do even more upon my return to London. Over the summer I took a big leap with a proposal to the Canterbury of West Africa. I am THRRRRRIILLLLED to announce that they have accepted my project and have agreed to provide me with Land space to build, from the ground up, the very first International Sewing School and production studio in Sierra Leone.
So so soooooo much to this story so PLEASE visit my fundraising page now LIVE! , have a read and hopefully I can gain your support. Donations are obviously the priority but just as important is spreading the word as you never know who it will reach down your chain.
REPOST, spread the word, tell your friends, family, distant cousin, neighbours cat, tell them all and help me make this iconic project a reality.
Much love and appreciation. Also please feel free to get in touch with me if you'd like to find out more or get involved in any way.
