Essence Of Womanhood: Interview

February 2nd, 2012 — 6:26am

When did you first become interested in design?

From as far back as I can remember, I was always interested in fashion. I remember from the age of nine or ten my mother taking me to my seamstress for us to sit and design various outfits for special occasions.

So, from a young age my goal was to be different, and I did this through fashion. I then began modeling at the age of 17 and soon took on the role of stylist at the age of 24, but it wasn’t until completion of my Bachelor’s in business and after styling various clients in Barbados and in the United States that I realized that I was not truly expressing myself as the artist that I know I am.

Such a realization pushed me to follow my dream and pursue a career as a fashion designer.

January 15th, 2012 — 8:13pm

Hello folks!
I hope everyone is having a great week so far and has had a wonderful weekend. My week was busy as usual but over the weekend I got the chance to attend an amazing event; the Miami launch of The Diva Lounge.

The Diva Lounge, founded and hosted by popular media personality Shayna D hosts exclusive networking events giving women in similar fields the chance to meet, interact and even build future relationships. These Diva Lounge events take place in New York, DC, Atlanta and now Miami. It was an excellent opportunity to meet some amazing, powerful ladies and to of course, make a toast to the Miami Mavens who were honored at this event for their unbelievable contribution to the industry.

Vixen Designs at The Denim Bar!!!

January 15th, 2012 — 8:10pm

I do hope everyone had a great and relaxing week and of course I must check in and let you  know how my week went. I am at a point in my life where i am trying to find balance, I find myself rushing here there and everywhere and this rushing is proving to not be the best thing, this realization hit home for me as I was rushing around on Saturday, had to stop for gas and then drove off with my purse on top of my car. Yes, I admit, I was that scattered person, but thanks to good and calm friends and a good samaritan I found all my belongings and all is well.  (oh and thanks to traffic lights since my belongings were in the middle of the busy street!) But onto more fashionable and fabulous moments!!!

Over the weekend I attended a fabulous event hosted by the legendary Monie Love. All those familiar with the Hip Hop story would know of female legends such as Queen Latifah and Monie Love and on a side note for all you ladies out there who sometimes need some encouragement and motivation, I suggest listening to the Queen Latifah’s  Ladies First featuring Monie Love.

Now on to the event, which was held at my new favorite place, the Denimbar, we got first look at Monie’s launch of her  ‘Vixen Designs ‘. I must say, it was an amazing event, held on a Sunday afternoon, I got the chance to meet and greet many, enjoy delicious appetizers (which I  am still craving, big shout out to Haitian sensation Erica the Chef!!) and after we all had a bite and got to know each other, we all had a chance to do what ladies do best, shop till we drop!
