Saving the animals with fashion

A group of models are made up as animals to raise awareness about endangered species.

Bo Sakalkitya, a producer at PNN, and make-up artist Apple Love decided to collaborate on ‘The Jungle Project’ after a successful social-media project, and recruited a group of models – including Laura Mam and actress Mean Sonita – to participate in an exhibition and fashion show next weekend. “We wanted to do this exhibition because of the [recent] drought, and issues with climate change,” Sakalkitya explained. “I mixed it into fashion because it’s my way to share information.”

In addition to the show, the event will feature young eco-activists and booths for wildlife-protection NGOs. It starts at 6:30pm June 25 at Kaifun, #25 Street 334.
