New York Fashion Week is a magical yet chaotic cultural phenomenon where the fashion industry comes together while creating impactful moments in time. Dreams can genuinely come true overnight with a well-executed, attention-grabbing visual presentation that takes teamwork to build. With that being said, Curve and Plus Size models alike were showcased at this year’s
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being a featured guest for the last of 2015’s Cocktails and Conversations by Impact Magazine. This really meant alot to me, as I have featured Tunisha Brown on the blog, have watched her over the past year as each month she brings very unique, smart, and inspirational folks out to talk about their craft and inspirations!
If you are not familiar with Impact Magazine, this digital publication is doing some real cool things in and beyond Atlanta! IMPACT’s purpose is to “shed light on the lives of ordinary people who are doing extraordinary things and making an impact in their communities.” I mean, hey! So when Tunisha invited me to be featured for December, as I celebrated 7 years of plus size fashion with The Curvy Fashionista, I could not have been more honored!
And I was amongst great company at the every so swank The Georgian Terrace hotel! Not only was I a featured speaker, but Terrance Terry, aka The Nail Villain and Jasmine of Razor Chic Atlanta were featured speakers as well! Both of whom I follow on Instagram and have stalked for a minute!
Guests enjoyed beats by the UBER talented DJ Naturel, seriously, she had us jamming on the ones! From Beyonce to The Percolator, in betwixt and between the speakers, we all grooved and sipped and thanks to the uber chic vendor, Mo McKenzie Styles, we had the chance to sneak a peek at her “Style or Die” Tees!
As for what I wore?
I was hyped and geeked out to rock this velvet number by Rachel Pally! Woot! Paired with a pair of nude-to-me Sam Edelman Heels, I wanted to be sleek and chic and festive! I cannot go without thanking Patrice Story, who beat my face!!! Thank you boo!
Each month, Impact Magazine holds these Cocktails and Conversations with a different theme each month and if you were at Full Figured Fashion Week, then you may have attended her feature with Gwen DeVoe! I cannot wait to attend many more of these events, to meet more of those who are making an impact in the community!
“Everyone is dynamic in his or her own unique way and that each of us has the ability to change ourselves, change our circumstances and change our lives.” Tunisha Brown
