ING Activewear and Touch the World's Code Purple Event Is an Endeavor That Marries the Arenas of High-End Fashion and International Philanthropy

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 9, 2012) - Calling all New Yorkers, surrounding areas, and those who will be traveling into New York City for the 2012 Fashion Week events: Join Code Purple on Thursday, February 16th at 7pm, on the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum for a historical first show.

The newest craze in fashion is purple, and this craze is launching in New York City with a reach extending across the globe. A collaborative effort between ING Activewear and Touch the World, Code Purple Event is an endeavor that marries the arenas of high-end fashion and international philanthropy. ING Activewear CEO and Founder, Robin R. Crespo, engineered a fabric that is certified mosquito repellent and then designed this life-changing technology into a garment called Moskeeto Armor™. With the aid of Touch the World, Moskeeto Armor™ has already made its way into parts of the world, such as Africa, where mosquito-borne malaria infection is the number two killer, claiming a child's life every 45 seconds.

You can do your part and help save lives across the world by attending Code Purple Event at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum on February 16th. Be part of this momentous, first ever Code Purple Event fashion show and the launching of a movement that will literally change the world.

Join us on at the Code Purple Event and enjoy whimsical runway collections by three world-renowned designers:

  • Lawrence Pizzi who recently closed Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week,
  • Guy Wood of 5001 Flavors who has designed custom attire for over 300 music videos and dressed celebrities like Alicia Keys and LeBron James, and
  • D. Barak Stribling of By Barak whose work graced Madonna's dancers at the Super Bowl halftime performance as well as the Victoria's Secret fashion show.

Code Purple Event is bursting with other treats like giveaways, a live auction, surprise music performances and appearances by supermodel and reality star Cynthia Bailey and Nigerian Princess and supermodel Keisha Omilana.

Do not miss out on an exhilarating night of high-end fashion, celebrities and an opportunity to save lives. Make a child, mother, father, or friend safe from malaria by attending the event and extending a hand to someone around the world who needs Moskeeto Armor™ to live without fear.
