Make-a-Wish Makes a Catwalk Dream Come True at the Indashio Fashion Show in NYC this September. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG
On Friday, Sept. 7, 22-year-old fashion designer, stylist and entrepreneur Indashio will team up with Commerce Bank and the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant the wishes of two young ladies who have always wanted to model. Seventeen-year-old Ali, who is diagnosed with Wilms’ tumor, and 16-year-old Marissa, who is diagnosed with aplastic anemia, will meet the designer, attend pre-show fittings and model castings, and take a turn on the catwalk for the debut of Indashio's Spring 2008 collection - a Las Vegas-themed extravaganza to be held at the Commerce Bank’s New York headquarters at 42nd Street and Madison Avenue.
"I am thrilled to be partnering with Commerce Bank again this season as my presenting sponsor," notes the designer. "Their continued support for my line and my humanitarian efforts means the world to me. Not only are we celebrating the fashion industry, but we are teaming up again to make dreams come true through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.” In 2006 alone, Commerce made 4,900 different contributions and donated a total of $9 million, part of their overall contributions exceeding $56 million which benefit organizations that improve the quality of life of people living in the communities served by the bank. “Thanks to our affiliation with Indashio, Commerce is not only America's most convenient bank, but also America's most fashionable bank,” says Greg Braca, Commerce Bank New York City President. “More importantly, our partnership provides the resources that enable Make-A-Wish to offer hope and strength to ill children and their families.”
The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants more than 12,600 wishes a year to children with life-threatening medical conditions - more than 150,000 wishes in the U.S. since they were founded - to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. “Indashio has such a big heart,” agrees Brent Goodrich, Make-A-Wish Foundation of America spokesman. “He goes above and beyond to create a wish experience that is truly phenomenal and is sure to inspire these extraordinary young women.”
