Yes we are officially on the map now..."B"Couture Consulting & Placements pulled off a successful runway show on August 20th at the Frey Norris Art Gallery in San Francisco California. Featuring local designers; Erica Evarize,West Coast Leather, Max Nugen, Adu Jamal, "B"Couture Exclusive ( boutique launch coming spring 2010) and our new friends over at Selix formal wear topped it off.
It was a wonderful experience for me, as the producer of this operation I was blessed with a fabulous team of dedicated Models; Brandi, Ashley, Theresa, Tiffany, Caroline, Mary and the 'oh-so-lovely' Noelle...Our gents were just as edgy and to highlight a few I'll mention Terrelle, Steve, Saudi, Joshua ( who brought me a glass of bubbly when a sista was just about ready to lose it lol) Delijah,Frances,Carlos, Lilai, Semaj and Terrence.
We can't even begin to talk about beauty and success without mentioning the "B"Couture C&P team of beauty and fashion professionals who contributed to making this a successful event; Jamaica Suk my lead makeup artist, Mercedes and Steve who came out and effortlessly represented to the fullest. Alongside was first-timer Sydney who managed to give us a creative mix of hairstyles in the midst of all the chaos she kept her cool and pulled off a great debut that led to an immediate collaboration.
This team has no idea what they mean to me and their hard work and professionalism resulted in a fabulous show and has opened the doors to many more opportunities to come!
The day Started early with many run-ins and set-backs but it ended with a crowd of political socialites and local celebrities giving a standing ovation a birthday celebration of Keith jackson and me proudly taking on that runway. It was a tough journey but all so worth it. Since then, "B"Couture has been approached with opportunities to produce more events but I think we will wait and take a more casual approach to that side of the business. But in the mean time you can definitely keep watching for the "B"Couture Logo on fashion show flyers, websites, music videos, plays....you name it! where ever there is lights cameras and action..."B"Couture is there bringing the Hair Makeup and Wardrobe!
Special Thanks goes out to Chuy Gomez of 106.1 KMEL for spinning,Even Odds for coming out to show their support and to Wendi and Raman for approving my request to use their venue for this event!
