Fashion has always been a huge passion of mine, you could say getting the opportunity to watch some pretty iconic fashion moments being made as a young girl ( I never missed a Baby Phat fashion show , Kimora was a young fashion beast and I was always inspired) and having the chance to launch my own sneaker line ‘Pastry’ with my sister at 22 certainly fueled the passion.
Now in my 30’s I am ready to get back into fashion, I took a year in 2017 to shadow and work with a Project Runway Alum Candice Cuoco to not only create a bad ass collaboration “Bad Butterfly” but also to learn the ins and outs of being a fashion boss. I learned so much from Candice and her team over that year and put on 3 fashion shows, 2 collections in the matter of 6 months, it was like a high-speed internship / fashion course. the first video is where it all began, Candice teaching me how to make a pencil skirt from scratch and the second is a peek at the what we worked on. the entire experience inspired me to keep going and I am proud to say that in 2019 I am teaching my daughter the fashion game and we will be launch Glitter and Lace, A mommy and me experience :) Stay tuned for my full Fashion Doc on my year with Candice, AND Glitter and Lace!
