Arizona designer creates fashion with compassion
By Gillian Ferris Kohl
Flagstaff, AZ – Host Intro:
Flagstaff might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of high fashion...it's more of a fleece and flip-flops kind of place. But tonight, Flagstaff will host a world premiere showing of couture ball gowns on their way to the United Nations. They'll be part of the U.N.'s Global Compassion Ball, an art show and fundraiser for worldwide relief efforts. The designer, 27 year old Arizona native Danell Lynn, gave a preview of the gowns to Arizona Public Radio's Gillian Ferris Kohl.
