Last night was my runway debut as a designer in Charlotte Seen Fashion Week's Recyclable Designers evening at Reel Works Studio. For my look, I wanted to bring awareness that one can achieve a luxurious appearance without having to wear their wallets on their sleeves, in other words, look like a million bucks for much less. My design was created out of Michael Kors shopping bags. My model, Hannah (right), rocked my 2 piece plunging tunic and detachable darted a-line skirt with pearl detailed clutch in hand (all in gold). Hair and makeup were kept sleek with a touch of classy rocker edge. Simple, ready-to-wear.
|My model, Hannah, sported a volumized sleek ponytail with a black smokey eye, contoured cheeks, and a nude matte lip.|
|Hannah getting her nails done after the salon. An Essie 'Licorice' mani.|
|A preview of what I wore. Pearls, pearls, pearls! (Reminiscent of the pearls on the clutch.|
|My badge says I'm a 'captain'. All aboard!!|
|Waiting for the show to begin|
So mad I only got a 3 second clip!
