In our follow up to this incredible story, we went Live on the scene and now, bring you highlights from the show and the mission of this highly talented and very driven woman. On August 18, 2018, 26 year old Demi Cruz held her first annual Runway of Dreams fashion show in support of starting her nonprofit organization called “Diamonds of Destiny.” Her biggest inspiration was and is her goddaughter, Chelsea, who has down-syndrome.
During an inspiring fashion show that graced the St. Luke’s Catholic Church Parish Center, Cruz was joined by over 100 of her family and friends to support the IDD, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities community, she’s passionate and committed to serving.
The “Runway of Dreams” fashion show highlighted three outfits for each model. Outfits were chosen based off of “What inspires them”, “What they aspire to be” and “A Celebration of Formal Wear.” All outfits were picked to represent their individuality and inspirational stories about becoming a young medical professional, business men, and world travelers.
Demi Cruz’s dream of creating this non-profit organization is in hopes of building a fun and safe environment for her goddaughter and friends to live a life of independence and zest through recreational activities. Cruz said it best, “I want to build a facility for these beautiful people, to live in their 20’s and have the ability to enjoy a gym workout, fine dining, and dancing, all while doing it in a fun and safe environment.”
At 26 years, Demi Cruz is setting a great example in her community by showing great leadership, innovation and heart. In her very first runway show to help fund her non profit organization “Diamonds of Destiny”, Cruz is already making dreams and miracles happen one runway at a time and proving that fashion can be used for good.
