Baton Rouge Fashion Week Year 5

Well it’s a wrap for Year 5 of Baton Rouge Fashion Week and I am happy to say that it’s Big night was a big success. Hosted by the beautiful and talented Chelsea LeBlanc from WAFB,   and the equally talented and dapper Gerron Jordan from NBC 33, the night was filled with witty banter and unbelievable high fashion.

Designs included a whimsical vision of haute couture as visualized by the twelve year old (YES! you read that right…twelve) Alexandra Bujan, a sexy mod vibe by Just Joe, social messages on IME’s t-shirt line, dreamy lace creations by Altrage by Kelby Bell, and vintage with a modern take from Your Mother’s Closet.

There were several precious moments during the show. A two year old model in the making stole people’s hearts as she placed one leg in front of the other, hands on hips, and a face that meant business. She was there to give the people what they wanted and the crowd went wild. I must admit that I got a little emotional, and there were several proud momma judge moments when I saw several of the models walk down the runway. Some of these young men and ladies have been doing this show for several years now and when you see them grow up in front of your eyes, it just tugs at your heart strings. There was also a lot of genuine gratitude too for the opportunity of participating in a fashion show.

It was a very special night. Congratulations to Brandon Campbell and his incredible talented and hardworking team for bringing this vision to life in the Capitol City.

Until the next post.



This week: OBRFW 3


It is surreal how much I feel time slipping through my hands (btw great start to a future Mariah Carey song, dontcha think? I heart you Mimi!). In all honesty it seems like just the other day, I alongside a group of beautiful and talented ladies served as judges for the selection of models for Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion week season 3.

Today, OBRFW 3 is rolling onto its second day showcasing BARE, a sexy take on fashion that introduces an array of edgy, exotic, looks for your eyes to feast on. Tickets for tonight are sold out but if you want to “dip it and do it,” like my fave talk show host Wendy Williams does in the club, you can still get tickets for “The Big Night” here. “The Big Night” is when all the fashion kids come out and play, and “Yaaasss honey Yaassss,” I will be there to say “How you doing?”

This past Saturday Baton Rouge fashionistas dressed in black and white to attend the Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week (OBRFW) fashion show hosted by the very talented and charismatic, Chenese Lewis (pictured above) . The show featured the collections from OBRFW founder Brandon Campbell, LSU fashion design alumni, Juju’s boutique, just to name a few.

It was a lively night with the Jupiter downtown parade in full swing outside of the Louisiana State Museum, and the amazing view of our state capitol serving as a back drop for the fashion show.  And I have to admit that everyone there looked beautiful!

Until the next post!

This past Saturday Amelie G magazine celebrated the launch of it’s winter issue in New Orleans with a release party featuring the designs of the very talented Pedram Pasha Taheri of Pedram Couture. Pedram Couture’s winter 2014 collection consisted of beautiful plunging necklines, plunging back dresses, full sequined dresses, and delicate lace overlays. The entire collection is stunning, sexy, with a touch of sophistication.

I feel very fortunate to have met Pedram while he was embarking on this journey, and to see his vision materialize in such a beautiful way. There are some great things unfolding for him in the near future and I can’t wait to witness all of his future successes.

Until the next post!

Happy Friday everyone!!!! It has been a rough week for me for various reasons so a fashion show was just what the fashion doctor ordered. I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Prêt à Porter designs fashion show which took place on the roof top of the beautiful L’Auberge hotel & casino in Baton Rouge. Prêt à Porter designs is the creation of local New Orleans designer Carrie Licciardi who after receiving her degree in fashion design, and working for various fashion labels in L.A., decided to return home to New Orleans and launch her own fashion line. The collection is a cross breed of dainty southern charm meets contemporary design. From tuxedo jackets to a white linen dress, and no southern fashion show is complete without a purple and gold outfit. I really enjoyed the entire collection, and the fashion show was a great success for Carrie. I was very happy to see the lovely Leslie from Southern Flair Blog who was also in attendance. It was great to catch up and blog talk while we waited for the fashion show to begin. Overall it was such a fun night. I am glad that my friend Erica came along, this was our second fashion show that we attended this year. And my outfit is my take on the color block trend, that’s right like the song says “I did it my way”. I love everything about this outfit, not only was it super cute, it was super comfortable.

Until the next post, XO!
