Crowned Free Far Out Fashion Show 2022
New Vintage Place
889 Broadway Ave NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504, USA
Get ready to boogie the night away at Crowned Free's 70's themed Fashion Show on Thursday, March 17, 2022, at New Vintage Place in downtown Grand Rapids! The runway event will feature Crowned Free's 2022 spring line. We want to keep the event groovy but we also want to share some important information on the Human Trafficking industry so we'll be sharing the ways Crowned Free supports and empowers organizations that work with survivors! If you really want to create some good vibes we invite you to wear your best 70's threads. Don't worry, you'll still be copacetic if you show up in your best smart casual outfit.
We are thrilled to have survivor Leslie King share her story with us! Leslie is a survivor of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. She was coerced into the lifestyle of prostitution at the tender age of 15 in Grand Rapids, MI. She became trapped in the underworld of prostitution and drug addiction for over 20 years. On July 4, 2000, Leslie miraculously found the strength and the courage to break free. Since 2003, she has been intensely engaged in working with individuals who find themselves trapped in the same horrors that she experienced.
In 2005, Leslie utilized her experience, expertise, and inspiring example of a renewed lifestyle to open Sacred Beginnings, a safe haven that offers hope, and healing to trafficking victims. Leslie consults with law enforcement agencies, human service professionals, clergy, and others requesting direction and understanding in working with prostituted individuals. She also speaks at various conferences and academic institutions on the issue of human trafficking. Leslie has been featured on The Today Show and has received many awards and recognition for the incredible work she's doing.
Leslie is well-respected in the state of Michigan from which she hails and where she is often seen boldly conducting street outreach to sexually exploited people during unconventional hours.
A portion of all sales during the event will benefit Leslie's ministry, Sacred Beginnings Women's Transitional Program.
You can pre-order Leslie's book When Angels Fight here at Barnes and Nobels. You can also check out her award-winning video here.
Crowned Free is a women’s direct selling clothing, jewelry, and accessory company whose mission is to change the lives of those who have been rescued from Human Trafficking. We believe this event will not only spread awareness but provide a catalyst to come together and make a difference!
