February 18, 2012 – Students at Marymount University presented the Voyage to Utopia Fashion Show, organized by the African Caribbean Student Association. Voyage to Utopia recognized Aidah Fontenot as Designer of the Year. She is a DC designer who incorporates an ethical green mission in her company.
“I was touched to be honored by the Marymount University students. The students at that campus have continually supported my events and a few have made very dedicated and talented interns. I am proud to be appreciated by the next generation of fashion.” – Aidah Fontenot, Designer
Voyage to Utopia, started in the early 2000s, has been a successful event in the DMV area to highlight local designers. The mission behind the Voyage to Utopia fashion show is to “enrich the Marymount University community and attendees from different backgrounds, religions, races, with a variety of cultures through various mediums of entertainment while raising awareness and donations for charities indirectly affiliated with the Marymount University community and their values.”
Because of the Voyage to Utopia Committee’s dedication to giving others the opportunity that they have been given, 100% of the proceeds have been given to KaKenya’s Dream as well as the VTU Education Scholarship.
