OPERATION: GIFT OF FASHION 2012…Behind the scenes!

I know right my goal, but for good reason I promise!! Happy Holidays!!! The semester is over and the Gift of Fashion showcase was a huge SUCCESS!!! I told you all that I was the  backstage coordinator for the Gift of Fashion!! I was extremely organized and everything came together very nicely!!! Sooo, these events are chaotic, but this is my zone, my element!! ya know, so this was a love/hate relationship back there especially because my job is to ensure everything and everyone is where they need to be doing what they need to be doing, and ensuring everything goes smooth, fast, and efficient as possible behind the scenes and on the runway!! Despite, a M.I.A. MUA and a flakey designer and model (I must keep it real)….OMG IT WAS AMAZE!!!

RECAP of mostly backstage and will get some runway shots up as they  become available!!

Big Shoutout to everyone that was a part of the show’s success this year!! I have to thank the team Cre8tive Chemistry, Jay Nicole,  John and Sports Zone,  Designers, Models, Dj, Reesa Renee, Photographers, hair Stylists and last but certainly not least MY BACKSTAGE CREW!!! I have to say def. loved the crew!!! I had cousins on make-up, pix of behind the scenes, my dad helping with music, 2 cousins were models, and cousins as dressers and Though many were my cousins that didn’t mind helping and a few that volunteered for a good cause mixed with fashion!!! Without each person, we couldn’t have made the show work!! Ending the night with a box filled with toys and raising $400 for Toys for Tots!!

LET’S JUST DIVE IN… Yes, my cousin Pierre (pierre_edwards1@yahoo.com) made this Amazing program for the show!!! My families quite lovely, aren’t they!!

So the MUA that was M.I.A was replaced by some samples that Tony and Jazmine went around Georgetown looking for…well, that was the last option since neither M.A.C nor Sephora would lend us an MUA for a good cause…BUT THE SAMPLES WERE CLUTCH, and my cousins Lovie and Tiffany along with helpers Rudy and her team did it up on the models for their make-up…THANK YOU THANK YOU!! I am away in Florida til’ after Christmas, so once I’m home I will load more pix!!
