One Simple Wish is a non-profit organization that was started in 2008. The organization helps individuals grant simple wishes to foster children and those in impoverished families. 16-year old Imani is one of the foster children with One Simple Wish who will be able to live her dream of a full day of beauty in Time Square on Saturday, June 7th.
Fox 5 TV’s Good Day Street Talk made it possible for Imani to receive the surprise and brought One Simple Wish, TRUE Model Management, and Runway the Real Way together to fulfill Imani’s dream. TRUE Model Management CEO Dale Noelle will provide Imani with a complete makeover and new look courtesy of Sydney’s Closet. Imani will then flaunt her new look on the Girls Empowerment Fashion Runway and keep the look once the show is over.
All participants walking in the runway, including Imani, will have their makeup done by celebrity makeup artist and L’OREAL Paris Pro makeup artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis and a group of independent makeup artists. Gomez-Duplessis’ experience includes creating looks for Donna Karan, Kerry Washington and Jennifer Aniston.
GEFR will also feature workshops backstage on education, philanthropy, health, nutrition and building confidence from various schools and organizations. After the runway show there will be a post-dance party from 3:30-5:30 pm.
