1st Solo Showcase

Join Kesho Wazo as they bring a new sense of urban youth culture to the city of Portland—showcasing their vibrant talents through music, art, performance art, fashion design— including a pop-up shop—short films and the release of their “Idea Chart,” which will outline future plans and events for Kesho Wazo.

Music during the runway show will be hosted by producers Shadia & Charle (Leap), DJ Freeit and DJ Soren. Filmmakers Henry Spritz and Erin Murphy will showcase their short films during the event—one of which includes, an exclusive trailer for the Kesho Wazo documentary. The group will also hold a silent auction with collaborative pieces by David Thete, Mahalia Judge, and Candice Gosta.


 The merchandise was created by Mahalia Judge, Dylan Greenlaw, and David Thete . Judge designed and printed the merchandise . Greenlaw designed and repurposed clothing and styled the models with the help of Thete.
