Hosted by Guy Lambert, Korto Momolu (Celebrity Fashion Designer), Renee Nash, Anji Corley and April Watts, the Colours of Sickle Cell event was held at the Riot Act Comedy Theatre. The founder of the benefit fashion show is local actress and model Jamarias A. Malone who was born with sickle cell.
Events were followed by a Red Carpet, educational social hour and a live music performance featuring sickle cell patient singer Crystal Ki followed by a fashion show crafted by local Fashion Designer Studios D'Maxsi, Timbro Collections, Red Hue Boutique and Heydari.
Proceeds benefited the national headquarters of the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America.
