Fashionistas & Fashionistos!!
I lowkey miss ya'll...I have been so swamped with VonRay's "DAMAGED" FashArt Exhibition preparations and designing the Unconventional DAMAGED Collection. We had the first FashArt show in Shreveport, LA, our hometown to kick off a FashArt Tour and it was INCREDIBLE. So, grateful to GOD. We had three showtimes on June 4th and each show was sold out. I will be writing a blog soon to talk about the Damaged Tour... Houston,TX is the next city we will hit in July! We were also was granted our own Proclamation by the Mayor Ollie Tyler of Shreveport,LA our own official day... "VonRay Day" is June 4th every year!! This is so legendary for VonRay.
Thank you Dr. J Pickens for working with us and making this happen, you are super Dope!
Now Lets Talk Fashion... Obviously thats what you are here for!
I was prompted to make a bunch of Denim pieces, because of a vivid thought of my beautiful late mother. She loved denim, 98% of her wardrobe was Denim. That's one reason I was super excited to be connected with Mah-Jing Wong last season on Project Runway, we had that instant Godly connect and his design aesthetic of designing denim reminded me of a soft spot in my heart for my mother's love for Denim. My sister and I actually still own a lot of denim pieces from my mother's wardrobe. God gave me another great inspiration and it was my sweetie pie, Charleste Cotton, who is a MUA and Full-Figured Model. We have had the pleasure of having her Model and as a MUA for VonRay Fashion Shows & VonRay's Damaged FashArt Exhibition. So, I was scrolling IG, something I rarely do & saw a couple of dope photos of her wearing a Crop Top, can we say she LOOKED GORGEOUS. She inspired me to create the Light Blue Floral Cropped Top (which I named after her "Cha-Floral Crop") that you will see on me later on in this blog paired with a Denim Wrap skirt I made and a Lane Bryant Denim button-up shirt. I decided two weeks ago that I wanted to create a mini-collection of simple Denim, transitional seasonal pieces for Full-Figured Women & call it "Fat Girl BLUEZ". This collection will be presented in PFW (PlusSize Fashion Week Africa) in September (Praying God allows everything to go well).
Check out these two beautiful crop top looks from Charleste's Instagram:

Thank ya'll for reading and thanks Den Den for always capturing dope pics, rather we use a phone or camera. All photos were taken on my phone and no editing.
