The Birthday Girl

It official…its November. In the spirit of the relaunch of the fall collection I would like to pay homage to the fabulous girls who rocked my summer capsule collection.

Above is my bestie Jasmine who of course talked me not using the summer fabrics to create a custom 25th birthday look for her. Check out more pictures below including Natasha, my first customer, who wore the Cape Coast Collar to a wedding, Tamika who wore the Golden Tulip Romper to her graduation party, and Madison one of my besties and repeat customers who wore the Asylum Down Crop Coat to my fashion show.

The collar matches everything...even her date!

This collar just turns a little black dress all the way up!

Now this is how you celebrate a milestone!

Ray Marshall taking pic...Marci styling...and Brittney modeling..

Before the fashion show I did a photo shoot for the revamped fall collection. I worked with Ray Marshall again but this time I brought in Marci Rodgers of Heels and Hightops to assist with the styling. With over twice the looks than my summer capsule collection, I needed help. I also continued the trend of working with a young up and coming model and chose a young lady by the name of Brittney Brewer. The look for the shoot, and the collection, was very “Jenny-from-the-African-block”. Lord knows I love an aspirational and transitional girl and no one embodies that more than Jennifer Lopez. I was so in sired by her Bronx roots so I brought in lots of door-knocker earrings and we styled her hair in a top knot and bangs a la Lopez herself.
