That's it folks. Let us know what you think! Several thousand dollars were raised at the event and these funds will benefit children through the UN World Food Programme.

Props to Deola, Mensah and Obaro. Deola's collection was styled by the team of Yemi Akerele and Bola Balogun. I luv Deola as always, my other favs are Ozwald, Tina Atiemo and Sika Collection + I luv Rachel Roy, her fashion sense is fabulous - she is the ultimate fashionista! Let us know what you think of the clothes or whatever.

Where was this event held. And Deola Sagoe - is she half ghanaian, reason i ask is cos "Sagoe" is a ghanaian name. I know Paul Boateng and Kofi Ansah are but i am curious for Deola. The clothes are very nice, where can i buy some if i am located here in US. I want to support our ppl.

Bella. Obaro Ibru and hiw wife; Hirit, Femi Amure and Matthew Mensah are really keeping hope for children in need alive. Through what they are doing and organising, using Catwalk for fashion as a forum.

A very creative way of helping to stop hunger and poverty in the lives of African Children. "... children are our future" like Whitney sang in one of her hit songs.

Bella. as usual, always keeping it real. More to u, girl
