International designer-and Project Runway season five runner-up--Korto Momolu will bring her 2011 fall collection from New York to Columbus for a Downtown fashion show.

"Peace Through Fashion" will take place Saturday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. at the Athletic Club of Columbus, 136 E. Broad St. Tickets cost $35, with proceeds to benefit Amani Liberia, which helps educate and empower women in the African nation.

The Liberia native plans to take a different collection to her home country in May--one created specifically for Liberian women. The trip will be Momolu's first since she left Liberia in 1990 to escape civil war.
