Suluki FardonKeiona Cook, owner and head fashion designer of Qe’Bella hosted a sneak peak fashion show at Homewood Studios, 2400 Plymouth Av. N.

The sneak peak displayed a few garments that will be showcased at her annual fashion show. The mission for the fashion show is to raise money for youth to continue to take free sewing classes at Homewood Studios.

The sewing classes are for children ages six - 16 with six students per class. Homewood is owned by George and Beverly Roberts. George Roberts is a former teacher of Cook’s while she was a student at North High School. The Roberts said they saw Cook’s vision of using fashion shows and sewing classes to give back.

“What we are trying to do is to find young people in the community making their ways as artists in the field of design, art teaching and provide a place to do that,” said George Roberts.

Cook’s upcoming show is September 15 at The Capri Theater located at 2027 West Broadway Avenue in North Minneapolis. Two show times, 5pm and 8pm. General admission tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. VIP tickets are $40 in advance and $60 at the door.
