TALENT SHOW: This Wednesday and Thursday, the Council of Fashion Designers is highlighting the work of two panelists at the Newsweek & Daily Beast Women in the World Summit. Rebecca Lolosoli from Kenya and Phelicia Dell from Haiti — both from the Vital Voices network—will be showcasing their designs in the CFDA offices. Lolosoli, the matriarch of Umoja Uaso Women’s Village that protects women and girls fleeing from abuse, is bringing beaded jewelry and crafts that help sustain the village, while Dell features her VéVé handbags inspired by her native country.“It will help these two women who have emerging businesses,” CFDA executive director Steven Kolb said. “We are giving our members an opportunity to meet some interesting artisans that could bring collaborations and ideas to them. It’s a resource and introduction to artisans from Kenya and Haiti.”
