DESIGNER DRU CHRISTINE FEATURED AT 38th ANNUAL NAJASO CONVENTION GALA
CLEVELAND, OHIO — There is no denying this designers love for reggae music and culture. These elements remain a viable source of inspiration for the designers collections and other works. In retrospect, Dru Christine has been selected to showcase her latest collection at the 38th Annual NAJASO Gala in Cleveland.
NAJASO (The National Association of Jamaican & Supportive Organizations, Inc.) is an Association of Jamaicans and supporters throughout the United States and internationally. NAJASO was founded on July 4, 1977. NAJASO embraces many non-Jamaicans in organizations and individually, who support the Association’s programs; and also works closely with American and Caribbean organizations on issues affecting Jamaica, in particular, and the Caribbean in general.
