International fashion designer, Korto Momolu, will return to her home country of Liberia, in May 2011, accompanied by her public relations manager Leonard T. DeShield, Jr., to show a 27-piece collection designed specifically for Amani Liberia's “Sankofa Fashion Show,” to be held Saturday, May 14, 2011, 8:00 p.m. (GMT) at City Hall in Monrovia.

“Amani Liberia's goal is to create the opportunity for women to work with dignity and respect,” explains Amani Liberia Creative Director, Stephanie Myers. “Amani Liberia provides a place where women can earn an income for themselves and their families.”

Amani Liberia is a nonprofit organization that teaches Liberian women how to create, market and manage businesses through textiles and sewing. Women grow in value and self respect while living in harmony and working together. To date, Amani ya Juu has helped hundreds of women.

“My vision is for these women to be self sufficient,” said Momolu. “I want them to be independent enough to stand on their own. It makes sense for me to go to them and be a part of this, because with these women, they are me and I am them. They can look at me and say it's possible because she is like us. We're the same cloth.”
