ILAVA presented a fashion show at POP UP Beauty on Saturday, August 12th from 10 AM-8 PM in downtown Montreal! Pop Up Beauty is the Montreal and international rendezvous of afro fashion. With fashion shows, shopping, panels and workshops, this gathering event is aimed at afro-descendent Montrealers and other curious people, emerging brands, entrepreneurs, and influencers in the fashion, beauty, and wellness industry. We loved being there!

Msichana Collection Fashion Show

ILAVA presents the MSICHANA COLLECTION. The Collection aims to support the MSICHANA INITIATIVE: Bicycles for Enhancing Girl Education in Bahi, Dodoma.

Msichana Initiative is a nonprofit organization in Tanzania established to advocate for all girl's right to education in Tanzania. This includes addressing and finding solutions for key challenges, which limits girls' right to education. The initiative seeks to ensure this inherent right is given to all human beings.
