Tag Archives: Fro Fashion Week 2012
Hello everyone! You may have seen a few ‘Fro Fashion Week recaps already, and I assure you, it was just as awesome as they make it seem! I really walked away feeling inspired by Tarin Boone and the Naturally Me Media team. Y’all know Tarin is my age?!? There is nothing we can’t do if we put our minds to it! Anyway, *climbs down from soapbox* I apologize for the quality of pictures in advance. Feel free to donate to the ‘Holly Needs A New Camera’ fund. Lol!
First, the brunch! We were on the top floor of the hotel, and the view was gorgeous! They set the table so beautifully, and the food was pretty good too! The cheesecake was my favorite… ( ._.). Every woman there was doing the same thing in their life. Hustling to keep their blog and their outside life successful! It’s a juggling act y’all! Afrobella came and spoke to us about her story, and how to build our brand and keep readers engaged. It was so inspiring to hear from her! Check out the pictures!
Next, I went to the Naturally Natural documentary screening where I was the moderator! The screening went great, and I had so much fun discussing different topics with our panel, the director and producer Queen, and the guests! Only thing is, we needed more time!! Of course, I don’t have any footage of that.
There were seminars, styling demonstrations, celebrity stylist Felicia Leatherwood held a question and answer session, Shea Moisture representatives gave massages and manicures, Beautiful Textures gave away FULL SIZED products of THEIR ENTIRE LINE… In other words, all sorts of amazing things were going on!
Then Saturday night, the penthouse party!! The party was hosted by Kim Coles, and it was so much fun! The DJ kept everyone on the dance floor all night! Check out the dim, blurry, pics. That’s how you know we were having fun, right?!
Sunday afternoon, it was time for the ‘Fro Fashion Show!! My camera didn’t do ANY justice to the beautiful hair and designs there, so I will refer you to some recaps that really show how amazing the whole thing was! Check out these blogs:
All in all, it was a beautiful, fun, and inspiring event! I can’t wait for the next one! With that said, let’s get into the blog-hop! If you don’t know how the blog-hop works, just check this post!
