Global fashions premiere in Albuquerque

Founded in 2009, New Mexico Women's Global Pathways (NMWGP) has become part of the bedrock that supports Albuquerque's population of refugee families from around the globe—many of whom have survived war, decades-long conflicts, and economic and political upheaval. Through classes that include English as a second language and sewing and craft training, as well as small-scale farming, NMWGP supports women and their families in their transition to life in America, providing them with the resources they need to thrive. Many of the classes that bolster the self-sufficiency of the women the organization works with emphasize the design and creation of fashion and accessories, and soon the greater community will have the ability to see and purchase these at NMWGP's upcoming Cultural Fusion Fashion Celebration, which will be held at the Albuquerque Museum on Jan. 15, from 2-4pm. As they plan for the celebration, the nonprofit's event coordinator, Babsy Sinandile, took the time to share with me the importance of events like this and the details of the exclusive fashions that NMWGP will soon launch.
