Clark Atlanta University Homecoming Fashion Show 2013

The Clark Atlanta Homecoming Fashion Show on October 22nd, 2013 entitled Mt. Olympus took place in the CAU gym.  This theme was inspired from the Greek mythology. 

 The fashion show consisted of seven scenes captioned with god and goddess names. The flowing trains, white gowns, and royal headdress and hairstyles were very cohesive with the show’s theme. 

 The beautiful finale piece of the show was announced as an auction piece on CAU designer Stephanie Gordelle’s website A portion of the proceeds were contributed to a breast cancer foundation.
 Master Piece.

During the middle of the show there was a musical performance by artist Natasha Mosely. She wore a black and white striped (jersey mesh and leather) dress paired with knee-high black boots. 

 After the performance was the anticipated “walk off”- sponsored by Uppity Negro clothing line. The hosts invited about 20 male and female participants on stage to strut their stuff. The crowd decided by applause that two models were the strongest, and they “walked to the death” to break the tie. The winners received clothing from the sponsor as well as bragging rights for the rest of the year.

These two fierce young ladies tied at the end (and rightfully so).

  The show continued on with a menswear focused section. 

 Bandana print pants

 The show included a wide variety of different prints, looks, and materials. The overarching trends throughout were: black and white color combination, fringes, metallic material, body chains, zebra print, denim, color blocked panels, mesh, and silk garments.

It was a great show! The behind the scene members worked long and hard on Mt. Olympus. The blood, sweat, and tears that put forth paid off!

 It has created great anticipation for Clark Atlanta University Fashion department's fashion show in the Spring. 

I can't wait!!!

Vote for Lucky FABB's New Voices of Beauty

Blogger Naty Michelle is in the running. She is a Latina blogger who actually inspired me to create this very blog. She is very deserving of being chosen. Naty has been soaring ever since the creation of her Blog A Love Affair with Fashion, and hasn't slowed down since. I admire her humility, sense of style, and hard work.
 "I created A Love Affair With Fashion on December 4, 2011.  I was looking for a new creative outlet and a way to connect with others.  I wanted to show that you can still look great while shopping on a budget and that personal style isn't just about the brands you wear.  At the time, I was transitioning out of the music industry and felt that on some level I was having an affair with fashion. 

Three years ago, I lost my father to stage 4 colon cancer.  It has completely changed me as well as my outlook on life.  I'm a firm believer that the struggles and tragedies we face make us who we are today.  People always ask what inspires me, and my main source of inspiration comes from my father. After seeing him fight for his life and seeing all of the pain he endured, it made me realize that I can do anything in life and that I deserve to do what makes me happy.  I get my strength and courage from him and he will forever be my driving force.  I just want to encourage others to believe in themselves and to follow their dreams just like he did for me.  We all have our personal stories and this is mine.  He's the reason I want to inspire.  It's not just about my blog or the clothes, it's more than that.

My amazing mother takes all of my photos and this blog would not be what it has become today if it weren't for her.  She has truly helped me transform A Love Affair With Fashion in such a short amount of time and I am very thankful for that.  My blogging journey has been such an incredible experience so far and I look forward to all that is to come! Thank you so much for taking the time to read my posts and for all of the lovely comments and support.  It means more to me than you know!" -From her About page.
