“This project will raise money for, and awareness of people in the Horn of Africa, where the UN estimates that 750,000 Somalis alone could lose their lives as a result of the drought and famine. The plaid fabric of the scarf is widely used by the Masai tribe in East Africa, and the pattern has also inspired my fall collection.”
