Korto Momolu NYFW SS13 Bare Feet Shoes, General Mills
Earlier this year, Korto teamed up with General Mills and ShopRite’s year-round, hunger-fighting initiative, ShopRite Partners In Caring, as a celebrity judge for a t-shirt design contest, appropriately called “Knock Out Hunger.” Additionally, Korto will appear on a special edition box of Cheerios that will be sold exclusively at ShopRite stores in September 2012. To further demonstrate her support in raising hunger awareness, she invited the grand prize winner of the t-shirt design contest to showcase his winning design on her runway at fashion week.
Highlighted as a top 5 designer to watch by New York Magazine in 2010, and listed as “The Grio’s Top 100” in 2012, Korto Momolu, a native of Liberia, West Africa, easily stands out from the rest and has captured the attention of the fashion industry elite. She has been featured in People magazine, Essence magazine, Women Wear Daily, Soap Opera Digest, and will appear in American ELLE magazine this fall.
