VH1's Yandy Helps Raise $12k for Keeping Families Connected

On Saturday May 19, 2018, Keeping Families Connected (K.F.C.) hosted Creation of Fashion, a high-intensity designer fashion show, at Howell and Dragon in Dallas’ Design District. The elegant gathering highlighted the latest in fashion, spanning the realms of casual wear to formal, all the while entertaining the crowd for a night of style, impact, and charitable giving.  

Yandy Smith of VH1’s Love and Hip Hop New York was the event’s official host, expressing her gratitude for K.F.C. and for the work that its founder, Letitia Scott, has done in the community. Overall, the Creation of Fashion event raised $12,000.

“I love organizations like this,” Smith stated on the red carpet and repeated again during the event. “I’m so grateful to be here. Keeping Families Connected is doing an amazing job. From the bottom of my heart I just want to say thank you to K.F.C. – on behalf of all of those men and women who needed the love from their children [while incarcerated]. Thank you on behalf of all of those little babies who needed their mommies and their daddies. You so graciously have given them the love that they need.”

The fundraiser proceeded with a multi-look fashion presentation produced by Willie Johnson of J3 Productions to include designs by Black Kaviar, The Heart Hatter, Pink Lucy, RKJ Designs, EDW Designs, and more. Guests mixed and mingled throughout, enjoying cocktails by One Vodka, music spun by DJ Frances Jaye, swag by Sparkling Ice, and shopping by vendors.

Spotted in the crowd was CW33’s “Morning Dose” Host Laila Muhammad, Indigo 1745’s Keith and Denise Manoy, Fashion Group International 2018 Rising Star Nominee Daniel Mofor, special guest Anita Hawkins, bestselling author Cheryl Polote-Williamson, and more.
