This marked the 3rd Annual Church Girlz with Curlz Freedom Conference. However, this was my first year being apart of this AWESOME event. I was first exposed to the Church Girlz with Curlz movement last year at the Nzuri Natural and Beauty Expo Fashion 2 Fro segment which was also coordinated by Church Girlz with Curlz and Karon Couture.
The 3 Day Conference was held May 8-10 at Fellow Ship of Love Church located on 10223 Clodine Rd, Richmond, TX 77407 Each day was fulfilled with Workshops, anointed performances , uplifting messages and so much more.
First Lady Kandice and her team had been planning for weeks in advance to make this successful. The event was blessed with Great Sponsorship from all industries. (Fashion, Make-up, Health, and so much more)
Weeks of preparation went by before the event, and the bond that was made with the ladies became even tighter. My participation was involved in the fashion segment that was held on May 9, 2015. This was no ordinary Fashion Segment. It consisted of being Styled on stage then RIPing the Runway.
There were three Stylists – Karon Couture, Karen Outlaw Owner of SixtyFourFifty and Iesha McClarty Lead Styling Assistant to Karon Couture that did their magic. I will honestly say this was a BOMB idea. The concept was to style each model on stage by adding accessories and/or changing of the hair. This gave the audience a visual of how you can add flavor to any outfit. The audience was captivated and excited to see the transformation.
