9th Annual RVA Fashion Week
This is my 3rd year participating as a model for RVA Fashion Week in Richmond, Virginia. I love working with this team. The team consist of the area's top models, leading designers, producers, choreographers, make artist and stylists. RVA Fashion week showcases many of the industry's top organizations, local businesses and charities. Every year, RVA Fashion Week collaborates with local businesses and designers to display Richmond's style, creativity, culture, thru fashion. They are always well put together and execute the week of events in a spirit of excellence. The Executive Director of the Show and the Models is Ms. Marion Batts and her team take pride in the show and the presentation of the show. From the vendors, the models, photographers and the make-up artist they treat everyone involved with the show with dignity, respect and great care. I got a chance to speak with Marion backstage on the day after she was sick with food poisoning. She was a leader until the end of the show. She is a wonderful person and director. I have enjoyed watching her grow and elevate this event each year. I can't wait for the 10th annual RVA Fashion Week.
I participated in day 4 and 5 of the fashion week. The Casual Wear Designer Fashion Show and the Formal Wear Designer Fashion Show. They were a host of designers and boutiques that made the show a success. Just to name a few Tangee Massey Jones of Tangee's Closet. Charissa Goerge of toFREEyourSTYLE, Angelia Cooper of Angelia's Couture, Chanel Green of STitch by Chanel, LaKisha Greene of Le LaMone', Cynthia Gaines of Sew Uneek, and Klyde Wright of Klyde by Haus of Klyde just to name a few. There were so many wonderful designs. There were a couple of show stoppers. Kay Woodson shut the show down with the design from Angelia Cooper of Angelia's Couture. I have posted highlights below. This is a show that sells out every time. I have listed links to the designers below check them out.
