Behind The Scenes at DDH Purple Passion Fashion Show
I am back in action ladies! Oh yes! That means I will be blowing up you little devices with endless post featuring inspiration, fashion and just a little bit of what is going on in my world. So stay tuned.
In the meantime lets talk fashion! If you follow me on social media then you would know that a couple of weeks ago I was blessed to be a part of the amazing DDH Purple Passion Fashion Show. In my latest blog post, White Walls Induced My Model Walk and Pink Happens To Be My Favorite Color you will see that I featured a couple of their simplistically elegant and fashion forward accessories. Go check them out!
Based on a few messages that I have received, I know that you all have been sitting at the edge of your little seats just waiting to hear more about the show. Well, I am here to tell you all about it finally after a couple of weeks of rest! I needed the time to rest from the pageant, so thank you for baring with me beauties.
To be completely honest, I did not know what to expect as I sat in front of designer and founder, Darieus Freeman as he told me his expectations for the show. I mean, I have seen some of the clothing and accessories during our photoshoot but as far as an overall appearance of the fashion line... I had no idea what to completely expect. It was like putting pieces of a puzzle together. Oh, but when the puzzle was all put together I was introduced to spring time, classy bliss of an assortment of purples, pinks, yellows, and blues.
As I walked into the doors of the venue hours before the show started I stopped in my tracks as my jaw dropped to the core of the earth. Standing before me was every model, expect for me, in their assembled looks and I was shook! I was in awe. I was in LOVEEEEE! Yes, a pure love bliss. I could not do anything but think of how much I wanted every single piece of clothing as I scrambled to get my get my outfit to try on. I am sure I can speak for every person in the room when I say that each piece was dipped in elegance, dressed with class but still had a hint of sassiness. The best part of it is that each outfit looked expensive but y'all it is no secret, they are affordable! *passes out*
Oh man, what a wonderful time I had! Can I take a moment and talk about how down to earth the designers are! With all of the hustle and bustle that can come with being in a show it can get pretty crazy. I mean mood swings and elbows swinging too, if you know what I mean. Lol I am totally kidding, I have never actually seen or heard of a physical fight at a show before. Nonetheless, it can get really intense as the time winds down seconds until the show. As designers, Darieus Freeman of DDH and Lynn Danbrielle rushed around shuffling their feet doing last minute alternations I never saw them break a sweat. Even in the intense emotions that lingered as rapid tears flowed from behind the curtains due to a tribute for a beautiful angel whose presence was felt through the passion that was put into every single stitch in the clothing..
I have not been in many fashion shows but if I ever get a chance to be in another show I hope that my future experiences will be as joyful as this one was. I know that the designers were proud and their loved ones are even prouder, including those looking down below and watching us from way up high.
