About Fashion:

Why did you pick NOTW to collaborate with?
The NOTW people are SUPERFREAKS! "Freak" means to be highly enthusiastic about something you believe in or love. I know the staff at NOTW is passionate and purposeful about winning souls for the Kingdom of God. In these times, in order to get different results, we have to do things differently. I love NOTW because we're on the same page when it comes to reaching souls inside and outside of the church.
