Neiman Marcus CUSP Fashion Show and Panel

Hello guys!

I hope you all are doing well! Thanks again for reading ;) Today, I am sharing thanks and gratitude once again to Neiman Marcus for allowing me the honor of attending as a VIP guest to their CUSP fashion show and panel in early April. And as usual, they were quite impressive from the VIP goodie bags we recieved to the amazing outfit compositions that were strutted down the runway.

As someone who works in fashion editorial/media , I am constantly engulfed in fashion related discussion and debate. There's always the questions of "what's hot and what's not," "Trends or classics?," and "who you should be wearing this season." Those key talking points were included in the panel, however, they seemed to delve a little deeper into the relevance and authority of fashion, specifically large houses such as themselves and large designers, as well as how you can utilize fashion's power to better the community. This was very nice in my opinion because it shows a different side to fashion, especially high fashion. It wasn't the shallow nature that many stereotype.

Clearly, in the images below, the ensembles were very well put together and catching to the eye. I appreciate the variety of styles as well as the variety of models. There was a very colorful wardrobe, as well as a colorful cast. And, that exemplifies the importance of diversity in fashion. As a woman of color, it creates a sense of relateability for me to see other minorities glamorously waltzing down the runway in million dollar attire ;)

All in all, I had a phenomenal time and hope to be invited to the next event! Please check out the links and images below to show support. Thank you

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
