Style Mission, as the name so aptly suggests, is a special event concerning style, yet purposefully styled with a mission, in mind. Sonia Noel and the Sonia Noel Foundation for Creative Arts had begun this mission some years ago, featuring her fashions, all designed to support the less fortunate, the financially challenged and the underprivileged. This year, Style Mission returns with a bang…featuring a cross-section of local designers, all part of Guyana Fashion Week (GFW) 2016, under the creative direction of the Caribbean’s fashion guru, Richard Young, on September 11 at the Pegasus Hotel at 16:00h.The charity is geared towards assisting two outstanding persons in the creative field to seek further medical attention. Popular actor/comedian Henry Rodney and former lead hairstylist and makeup artist for GFW, Corin Gibson, are both in need of assistance to meet their medical expenses. Style Mission 2016 is expected to raise funds so as to enhance the life chance of the individuals.Noel, recently bestowed with an honorary doctorate and 2016 Philanthropic Leader award for her extraordinary philanthropic work, continues her style mission, as it were, by giving back to her community and elevating the ways we seek to develop nation-building confidence among our citizenry.The presentation also comes as a precursor to GFW, highlighting an eclectic range of innovative designers and showcasing stylists, hairdressers and makeup artists alike.The phenomenal Russell Lancaster will grace the proceedings with his inimitable singing style. Also featured at the event will be an auction of jewellery from King’s Jewellery World, a painting by Devina Deputron and a signature piece by Noel.Local celebrities such as Ron Robinson, Merrano Isaacs, Jennifer Thomas and Sonia Yard will also be in attendance and will add that special touch. Ras Camo will be there to entertain with his music.“Giving back is in my DNA,” Noel ecstatically said. It’s a premier event in aid of a worthy cause. Tickets cost $2500 and $4000, and are available at Nigel’s Supermarket and the Pegasus.
