The Angelman Syndrome Collections Presentation – is using fashion to make a difference. A fusion of fashion and fundraising is due to take place in one of the world’s most vibrant locations – New York City – at the Paul Hotel NYC on the 28 April 2018 the beautiful images below help to tell the story about our mission to cure Angelman Syndrome.

A host of global designers will be showcasing their latest designs whilst the organizer raises awareness about a charity called FAST the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics; designers will present their collections to an invited audience of fashion industry members – style leaders, fashionista’s, and the media.

All of the participants in this great event are able to use this fantastic platform to promote their work, their designs and engage with members of the media in a ‘Meet the Press Session’.

Joanna Marcella the founder of the Angelman Syndrome Collections Presentation says, “I’m encouraged by Colin Farrell’s mission to raise more awareness about Angelman Syndrome (a condition that his own son has) and I’m inspired by my grandson (Manasseh) who is living with Angelman Syndrome. As a celebrity Colin is able to capture the attention of the media with the story of his own son. Designers’, all members of the fashion industry and I can use this showcase to help raise funds for the research, which will lead to treatments and eventually a cure.”

The ‘Meet the Press Session’, is the main focus of this event, the mission is to engage with journalists and bloggers to create brand awareness for designers.

Fashion Designers of all ages, backgrounds and from all parts of the world that would like to advertise in our new Angelman Syndrome brochure or show a collection in our forthcoming event taking place at the Paul Hotel in New York City on the 28 April 2018, can send an email to Joanna at: joanna_marcella@hotmail.com

Info about Angelman Syndrome
Those with Angelman Syndrome typically have profound special needs, some physical disability, a significant lack of verbal skills, sleep disturbance and epilepsy as well as other possible complications. Angelman Syndrome does not reduce normal life expectancy but those with the condition will always need round-the-clock care. Angelman Syndrome is an extremely rare condition that is characterized by laughter, energetic movement, hugs and a mutual fascination of all things shiny – including water.
