This is the post you all have all been waiting for! as you know by now I attended The eye on fashion event in Tampa Fl. This competition was to showcase four amazing stylist’s and their unique talents for the chance to win $550.00 and a spread of their work in Revized Magazine.
I arrived In Tampa a little before 7:00 pm to make sure I was there on time. I decided to go with a playful, edgy look that night. Isn’t that smooch tank top so cute??
As Soon as I went in I heard the sweet music of a wonderful Jazz player. I then was greeted by warm and friendly front desk staff working the door. They quickly asked my name and then they stamped my hand giving me access. I was immediately stunned on how beautiful this venue looked! It was breath-taking how amazing this event was put together. From the white chiavari chairs all lined up, to the beautiful lighting. I knew this was going to be an epic night.
I then was asked to go find my seat, as soon as I found it I saw this. I squealed with joy (on the inside of course 🙂 ) I snapped this pic with my I phone in my excitement!
I then sat in my chair patiently waiting for the show to begin.
Here I am going crazy on my social media of course I had to give live updates.
As I waited there I sent my wonderful photographer/husband to get some behind the scenes coverage.
As he is clicking away I got the opportunity to check out some of the sponsored vendors and best of all the complimentary delicious appetizers. which by the way where not only beautiful to look at but tasted top-notch.
Check out these gorgeous chocolates I don’t even have words to describe them They had flavors like, Sangria, Mint, Peanut Butter just to name a few.
Now it’s show time! to start the show each stylist had to send down one look as their mannequins. Each “mannequin” was to represent a stylist aesthetic (at that moment we didn’t know who belonged to who).
After the “mannequins” took their place on the side of the stage the show started. These models are gorgeous!!
Now it was time for each stylist to style their model on the runway.
First stylist to come up and showcase her work was Melizza Williams.
Second stylist to come up was Brownie Brown Here is her look
Third stylist to come up was Faheema Safa here is her look.
Fourth stylist to come up was Tristan Richards here is his look.
Now it was time to announce the winner. though they all did an amazing job sadly there could only be one. After what felt like an eternity the envelope was in and the judges had given their scores.
THE WINNER OF EYE ON FASHION 2014 was Melizza Williams!!
Congrats to this amazingly talented girl, I know her journey has just started and she is ready to take her talents to the next level!!
Here is Lacy B. Smith thanking everyone for coming out. A big THANK YOU goes to him and The Fashion Movement for letting me be apart of his event. I’ll forever be grateful and I cant wait to work with him again sometime in the future.
I can truly say it was a great night. I loved mingling and meeting with all the great people I did. The show was a success and I’m forever glad I got to attend this event. It’s moments like these in my life that make me proud of the hard work I’m putting into chickicouture. I truly hope to be able to take it to the next level in due time.
Here I am on the red carpet
