On February 10, 2017, Angel Watching Over Me (AWOM), a 501(c)(3) organization founded by Sarah Akiba with a mission of raising awareness and supporting the victims and families left behind by a loved one by incorporating fashion and art, debuted its first ever fashion experience at Rafael Gallery during New York Fashion Week (NYFW).
The stunning models who showcased the statement pieces from the AWOM Club Brand all had a story, and guests were able to learn about their emotional connection to the brand with tablets sponsored by Microsoft and headphones by Master Dynamic.
Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed savory hors d’oeuvres from Omar’s Kitchen and sweet wine from Whispering Angel. Creative mixologists from Hooch, an app that creates a private cocktail society, mixed up top-of-the-line drinks with the renowned Tito’s Vodka. Aside from honoring the AWOM Club Brand, the event also celebrated the release of AWOM Journal, AWOM’s new monthly magazine. Attendees also had the pleasure of hearing heart-warming speeches from special guest speakers, AWOM founder Sarah Akiba and Vice President of AWOM Leah Karimdadian.
As the evening came to an end, all guests were thanked with goodie bags containing treats from Lush, Whispering Angel and MALIN + GOETZ as well as the signature AWOM hat and the newly release AWOM journal.
