[:en]Korto Momolu – Fashion Designer[:]

[:en]Korto Momulu is a Liberian fashion designer currently residing in Little Rock, Arkansas. She is best known for her achievements on Bravo’s Project Runway Season 5, where she placed second in the competition and was awarded the coveted title of “Fan Favorite”. Korto has gone on to create a name for herself in the fashion industry with designs that are created for real women and blend modern fashion with African details inspired by her Liberian heritage. Her designs have been featured in Essence magazine, Marie-Claire magazine, and InStyle online. Of Kimmie Weeks, she said: “It’s amazing when someone goes through the hell stages of life, rises up from it and instead of self-pity, proclaims self-determination. The determination to help the ones who are the most helpless, our children. It is an honor to support not just a fellow Liberian, but in my opinion, one of our generation’s greatest humanitarians. The Kimmie Weeks movement will be going long after he is gone, but while he is here, I vow to contribute and do my part to stop the suffering of our children one country at a time. Please know you have my support always.”[:]
