Hello ALL!

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:

I love the color palette & pattern marriage in this look from Charleste.

Who doesn't love a girl that isn't afraid to wear a cropped top with intricate details.

How long have you been into Fashion?

I have been into fashion since 8th grade with just styling myself as a hobby. As I enter into high-school, I was always that big girl who dressed nice and other plus size kids wanted to know where I got my outfits from.

What's your expertise in Fashion, Men or Women? 

My expertise in in plus size women. However, I am expanding my brand to plus size this year.

Where do you see Fashion going in the next 5 years?

In 5 years, I see myself as a black fashion icon with 2 brick and mortars in Miami and California in the United States, along with several pieces in resort hotel stores all over the world. In 5 years, our revenue will be exceeding 8 million dollars. 



What's your favorite color?

I do not have a favorite color. I love all bright and vibrant colors! 

 

Tell us more about your brand? Where did it start? Where can people purchase?

I started my brand in 2013, when I moved to Tampa, Florida. God spoke to me to create plus size resort & swimwear. I didn't think he was talking to me, until 2 skinny chicks walked passed my window in bikinis lol. Since then, my life has changed with volunteering, conducting research, and just designing for my curvy queens! My items can be purchased at www.ninasharae.com

Who do you look up to in Fashion?

I love COCO Chanel story. She reminds me of myself; a strong independent woman who wanted to impact the fashion industry. Coco almost lost everything, but she made a big comeback. Plus, she is a LEO! 



Favorite music artist?

Yonce! We have the same values and business ethics.



What influences your STYLE?

Traveling and learning different cultures influence my style and creativity. All my fashion shows and collections are based on theme. Last year, my theme was WELCOME TO THE CARIBBEAN and I played on the vibrant colors you will in the Caribbean. This year, my theme will be THE EGYPTIAN GODDESS"!!

Wear It Thin to WIN(ter)

Dennis Robinson II

This winter season has been super unpredictable with the weather, so when this occurs I always suggest "layering". When you layer up, remember to layer up in THIN layers... this way you can peel down if you get too hot or keep on the pile of layers if you feel cold. By layering, you will remain fashionable and prepared for any weather! Winter is almost over... I wonder what beautiful fashion will hit the scene this Spring 2017!! 

Check out my super dope Christmas gift from my second mother Penny Robinson in Miami,FL. She bought me this amazing Scarf that acts as a full poncho and she got this great piece at Burlington Coat Factory and it's great for any body type. My Boots are from Lane Bryant (I got them 3 years ago for $7.95 on clearance), Top & Leggings from Forever 21 and Necklace from H&M.
