HOPE FOR EMILIA Summer Fashion Fair
July 22nd – August 9th, 2012
Hope For Emilia is an exciting event that will last from July 22 to August 9, 2012 and will include a Summer Fashion Fair, kick-off fashion shows, an art expo and entertainment events to fund-raiser for the victims of earthquake in Emilia, Italy.
Belle Roussel has created ‘Mignonette’, a lovely Choker, Earrings and Bracelet in Italian Rose and Yellow Gold with Padparadscha Sapphires. ‘Mignonete’ is only available for purchase at the Chop Zuey Hope For Emilia store.
The first earthquake, registering magnitude 6.1, struck in the Emilia-Romagna region, on 20 May 2012. Two aftershocks of magnitude 5.2 occurred few hours after the main event and seven people were killed.
Nine days later, on May 29, a magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck the same area causing an additional eighteen deaths and widespread damage, particularly to buildings already weakened by the 20 May earthquake. And again on June 3, 4 and 6 aftershocks struck the region, causing panic between people, who still don’t know if this incubus is going to continue…
The damages of these earthquakes are terrible: 26 people died and thousands are homeless, living in tents. The whole economy of the country was brought to its knees.
Please be sure to check out the other designers and builders participating in this event.
Don’t forget to stop by the Chop Zuey main store for all of Belle’s beautiful designs.
