Designers Take Back Chicago With Delvin McCray!

Hey guys!

Thanks again for reading :) ! I am coming at you guys with an overdue post on my awesome experience at Designers Take Back Chicago. I was honored to be able to attend as VIP Media, along with my lovely aunt Miriam, thanks to the main designer, Delvin McCray. I am very grateful to him for that.

First off, if you are unfamiliar with Delvin McCray, then here's a short statement from him: "I am finishing my last semester at Columbia College Chicago with a BFA in Fashion Design. I have interned with companies such as Cotton Inc and LOLA MINX. I sought out special couture skills and tailoring techniques outside of school. I was previously trained by a master corset maker from Europe. I have been doing custom designs for 2 years and my company is now expanding to retail while offering custom made garments. I have 3 years experience in the fashion industry and sales. My mission is to bring elegance, timelessness, and innovation to American fashion. Practicing the same techniques used in Parisian ateliers, I am to create a competitive brand to that of Haute Couture. Slowing down fashion and bringing it back to quality and timeless elegance." Sounds pretty impressive, right? That's why his links are down below.

Now, let's talk about the event. This was a large collaborative fashion show organized by Delvin to encourage the showcase of local Chicago Designers for Fall Fashion Week. As you can see from the images below, the designs were not only visually pleasing but they were technically impeccable. The construction skills of the designers was just as impressive as the imaginative skills, especially with Delvin's work. The event lasted a total of approximately 3 hours and there was never a dull moment!
With great music mixes, fierce fashion models and killer garments, the show came together very nicely. Might I add that I appreciate the model casting. They were diversified in appearance and that is very important to me in keeping me engaged during a show.

Also, I was able to enjoy complimentary beverages and great food! All of the staff had such warm, hospitable demeanors and made me feel so welcome! All in all, the event was fabulous. I definitely hope to be given the priviledge of coming to the next one. Thank you so much to Delvin McCray from myself and my aunt! Congratulations on a successful show.

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
