Ashley By Design Teams With GiGi’s Playhouse To Host New York City “Got Dreams?”
New York City, NY (March 11, 2014) Down Syndrome Speaker/Clothing Designer, Ashley DeRamus, will start World Down Syndrome Day on March 21st of this year at the United Nations. She will close the day with an Ashley by Design fashion show and party at Gigi’s Playhouse in New York City. The event has been named “Got Dreams?” and takes place from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM.
The "Got Dreams?" event is a joint effort between two organizations that work to promote the awareness of those with Down syndrome, The Ashley Deramus Foundation and GiGi’s Playhouse. Ashley believes that those with Down syndrome should say what they can do instead of what they can’t.
Featured as models will be several young ladies from Miss America and Miss New York pageants. They will also assist the other models with dressing for the show as well as helping with their make-up and hair. The event will begin with all children and adults who attend enjoying music, dancing, and refreshments. A professional photographer will be taking photos of attendees during this time and the models will be walking through the crowd wearing "Ashley by Design" fashions. The models will be girls and boys who attend GiGi's Playhouse, ladies from Miss America, as well as Ashley DeRamus herself.
Ashley DeRamus will speak to the audience for 5-10 minutes introducing herself, her foundation, and her clothing line after which the "Got Dreams?" Fashion Show will begin. "GiGi's Girls" will model "Ashley by Design" clothing and be escorted down the runway by "GiGi's Boys”.
Each child with Down syndrome, their siblings, and all fashion show participants will be given a gift bag at the end of the evening with a special gift in it from Ashley. They will also receive a photograph to remember this special occasion.
"Ashley by Design" clothing will be on display and available for purchase. Ashley DeRamus will be available to talk with parents and children after the event at her display area.
