RAW Houston was a success in my book. It was held at Stereo Live March 23, 2016 in Houston Texas. RAW provides independent artists within the first 10 years of their creative career with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity.
Once given the invitation in December that I would be participating in RAW Houston and after the screaming I began holding model calls and scheduling fittings. The hard work and anticipation was well worth it.
MeYe Label showcased 10 vintage looks with an emerald city theme. The models were uniformed with a bold and dramatic look that was given by one of Houston’s best MUA Shartara Davis / IG @fierce_honey. The hair was styled by Nene / IG @thebeautymagician__ in an elegant bun for some while other models wore sparkling head pieces. I was in total awe as each model was fully dressed and my vision came to life.
RAW definitely pushed my brand to go the extra mile especially since I was the last fashion showcase to RIP the runway. Other designers included were
RAW currently operates in over 60 cities across the United States, Australia, Canada and the UK! So you can imagine how huge this was for me.
The Night also included independent visual art, film, fashion design, music, performance art, hair and makeup artistry, and photography.
Speaking of photographers, I definitely can’t forget the man behind the lenses that captured every moment for me, both behind the scene and on the runway. Mr Roderick Lightfoot owner or RL Studios. – www.rodericklightfoot.com
This night could not have been possible without the support of many family and friends that provided peace of mind. Teriya Young owner of MMW which is a women’s empowerment organization was right there by my side to provide organization and stability for the night.
For the aspiring designers, artist etc. keep on your path to your dream. I am firm believer that hard work and dedication will land you where you want to be.
Look forward to the next event!! Stay Tuned
