Men & Women of Distinction: Korto Momolu

A little girl forced from her African home by a violent coup, Korto Momolu held firm to her dreams and rose to the top of high fashion. She first burst onto the scene with two appearances on the reality series "Project Runway" and never looked back, becoming a fixture at New York's fashion week and building on her desire to make couture available to all women. Far from the bright lights, Korto now knows that home is where the heart is -- and her heart is here in Arkansas.
