Audi - Chicago's Fashion Week Finale

Hi guys!

I hope you guys are doing awesome! I am coming to you today blogging about Audi presenting the Chicago Fashion Week Finale, hosted by Fashion Bar Chicago. Shoutout to them for the invitation, especially Caitlin Nero! :)

If the goal was to end off with a bang, then mission thoroughly accomplished! I'm not quite sure where to start. There were so many things that I enjoyed about the entire event. How about the stark diversity amongst the pieces? I saw everything from dresses to costumes to pants suits to athletic wear. They really put together a nice multitude of fashion styles so that literally evryone in the audience could have something they loved. With so many collections that were presented, I got more than my fair share of eye candy for this season LOL. I also appreciate the fact that they had models of many ethnic backgrounds, sizes and it was co-ed. This was very nice to see as many times, all of the models in major fashion shows look very similar. So, kudos to the designers and casting director for the plethora of looks!

The first picture below shows my favorite three designs that competed in their Avant Garde competition amongst the designers. The challenge was to create a unique piece that symbolized the story of Chicago. The first representing the nightlife, the famous Skyline and the "fun" environment. The second, which turned out to be the winner (I agreed), represented the Valentine's Day Massacre with infamous Al Capone, even having authentic newspaper from that time woven into the garment, thus representing Chicago's long standing "gangster" persona. The last represented cancer awareness, love, beauty and life, which were all things Chicago is big on. The winning designer is linked below.

It was quite the experience, and I am so grateful that I got to attend. Thank you so much to Tony Long, the CEO of Fahsion Bar Chicago, for making this happen! His passion is unbelievable and inspiring to everyone. I hope to be able to attend again next time ;)

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
