Saskia Hardt, wife of the US Ambassador to Guyana Brent Hardt has graciously accepted the role as the patron of the event ‘Better Living 2012 and Glamorous… walking on sunshine’, the climax of the reality television series – Guyana Model Search (GMS)/Designers’ Portfolio (DP).
According to a GMS press release, Saskia also lends her support as patron to the 2012 anti domestic violence drive of the Sonia Noel Foundation for the Creative Arts, through which she hopes to increase awareness of the problem of domestic violence and abuse of women and children here in Guyana.
Meanwhile, the release also said that Minister of Human Services and Social Security Jennifer Webster has endorsed the mission statement of this year’s programme, that the youth must be made aware of their potential. To this end, the Ministry of Labour, Human Services and Social Security is partnering with the Sonia Noel Foundation for the Creative Arts and Guyana Fashion Weekend in promoting awareness of domestic violence as a national evil to be expurgated, the release added.
Richard Young, Creative Director for the two-part spectacular – ‘Better Living 2012 and Glamorous… walking on sunshine’ is very honoured and humbled to craft this indelible stamp on the Caribbean process of event tourism and the unique branding of our regional aesthetic. The driving force behind GMS/DP, Sonia continues to push the envelope for the development of the fashion industry.
