Urban couture house Deemai Fashions will host the Garden of Eden Benefit Fashion Show, a lavish party and fashion show to benefit the York Street Project in Jersey City on Wednesday, May 26 at 7 p.m. The event, which will be held at the Westin Newport Hotel in Jersey City, promises to be a true showcase of emerging designers and talent from New Jersey. In addition to offering a preview of the new Garden of Eden-themed line from Deemai, emerging designers Chi Chi J Designs, L'oshe by Deyonne, and Chi Chi Gahvienie will showcase their latest collections. Press and guests will be treated to performances by the Lost City Dancers, the soulful sounds of Renata Thompson, Tru Sol, and Rachel Guerra

All proceeds from the event will benefit The York Street Project in Jersey City, NJ, a center for homeless and economically disadvantaged women and children, providing them with food, shelter, education, child care, counseling and advocacy. “I’m thrilled to be in a position to be able to give back to an organization that has done so much for me and my family,” says Ellis, a graduate of the York Street Project. “There would not be a Deemai without York Street."
