Back in April we brought you news about SCHEFO, the charity featured in our Autumn 2011 issue: a city wide fashion show, Sankofa: A Fashion Affair, hosted by New York University’s African Students Union has partnered with  NYU’s African Law Association, Columbia University, St John’s University, City College, Baruch College, John Jay, and NYU Wagner

Sankofa: A Fashion Affair was on Friday, April 20, 2012, from 7:30pm to 10pm at the NYU Law School’s Vanderbuilt Hall (40 Washington Square South – Greenberg Lounge), featuring 8 designers and showcase a variety of performers from the New York City area.

NYU’s African Students Union aims to make this a community event, bringing people of all backgrounds together to celebrate African tradition, with a modern twist.
