So this past Saturday, I had an amazing opportunity to cover the 4th Annual Wear What You Fear Fashion Show produced by Ricky “Trendy” Da’Vista. Ricky is a wardrobe stylist, accessories designer and morning host of “Trendy Tuesdays” on Hot 93.7 radio.
Not only did the night focus on fabulous fashions but also on health awareness with the American Lung Association. The show partnered with the Northeast division of the American Lung Association to increase awareness about the Emphysema disease, a lung disease that destroys lung tissue, reduces the elasticity of the lung and leads to the collapse of the airways, making it difficult to breathe. Partial proceeds of the show were donated to the organization.
The Wear What You Fear Fashion Show was hosted at the beautiful Bill Miller’s Castle here in Connecticut and showcased some of the top emerging designers of Connecticut! It was so nice to see Connecticut step up and step out onto the runway with some amazing fashion designs. Some of the designers included Chinnyere McPherson of La’Rose Faschinn Designs, Stacy Lawes of Stacy Lawes International, Carmen Veal of Sani Auri, Bertha Angelo of La’ Moo Deisgns, Yseline Suarez CEO of Vice Versa Boutique and Matthew Reisman of MistirMr.
Check out some of my favorite looks from the red carpet to the runway!
