A New York City Fashion Week Event Supporting the White Lions


NYC Fashion Show Supporting White Lions – A Beautiful Success

Check out Linda Tucker’s video above which was made for the NYC Fashion show from footage of the White Lions brought to you by Brad Laughlin.The sublime musical track, “Children of the Sun” is thanks to U.K. composer David Chabeaux, who has generously donated this composition to the White Lion cause. Thank you so much for the enchanting song.
An enormous thank you to Adrian Alicea for putting on such a fabulous show. Also a big thank you to Carol Pepper, our New York based asset manager, for introducing us to Adrian.
Last, but certainly not least, extreme gratitude to Joanna May and David Ladd for, not only participating in the Fashion Show, but also helping the Trust raise awareness and money to help protect White Lions! Check out Joanna May’s pictures below showing how she lit up the Fashion Show in NYC. Joanna definitely has a second career she can easily fall back on!

Not only was the fashion show a success but over $1,000 U.S dollars were raised to help our White Lions! Joanna May’s, The “Spirit of the White Lions” and “Majesty”, paintings you see highlighted in the pictures below were both sold at the Fashion show. 20% of the proceeds were donated to the White Lions! Joanna May also helped to raise a little over $800 U.S dollars by taking the “White Lion” challenge and walking the runway.

A Little Overview on This Talented Designer:




Born in the rain forest outside Puerto Rico, Adrian Alicea is an avid animal lover and long-standing vegan. His support will be a trail-blazer, setting the trend for the high fashion scene to STEP-UP and take a responsible stand towards today’s environmental crises. Drawing attention to the White Lion Trust’s urgent conservation imperatives, Adrian Alicea’s spectacular designs WILL ONLY USE IMAGES OF WHITE LIONS THAT ARE ALIVE AND FREE IN THEIR WILD ENDEMIC HABITAT.

    While famous names such as Linda Evangelista, Channing Tatum, and Paris Hilton have graced his catwalk shows, Adrian Alicea is known for honoring beauty in women of all ages. In support of Saving the White Lions, this enterprising designer has offered an exceptional opportunity for any aspirant catwalk model of any age to walk his runway show this season for a fee of $1500 – which will be donated 100% to the White Lion Trust. What an extraordinary idea! If you are interested in modeling and walking the runway with Adrian’s new fashion line, please contact Adrian Alicea

However, there is also an opportunity to support from the crowd with tickets starting at $35!
