Currently reading : CAUSE AND AFFECTION
I haven’t had the opportunity to post since I last left for Europe. Our calendar has been jammed and after warding off several “subtle” hints from my long lost brother in Louisiane I finally have a Sunday morning free. No rest for the wicked. As I work my way backwards on the chain of events that have kept our studio occupied over the past couple of months, please, excuse the time warp.
Last Monday, Rich, our team, and I had the honor of actively participating in GMHC’s Fashion Forward event as the stylists of a runway show featuring Narciso Rodriguez, Yigal Azrouël, Richard Chai, Anna Sui, DVF, and Simon Spurr. Monday evening’s event raised $250,000 for Mr. David Geffen’s GMHC organization which is dedicated to HIV education, prevention, and healthcare. We had such a wonderful time thanks to Tonya Miller and everyone at the GMHC who were so open minded and forward thinking in regards to our work. I enjoyed my first working experience with, long time friend, Mr. Andrew Weir and his team who worked so hard with us casting models for this show. It felt so good being backstage with the 56 models that donated their time and exuded such enthusiasm and joy towards this cause. There were so many notable pros on board and it wouldn’t be fair to start naming names but safe to say, with Sang Bleu in the house, there was no shortage of beautiful inked bodies.
I want to especially recognize Shakir Najieb who selflessly put in some serious overtime and exhibited full commitment and dedication to our team and this event. Props.
Legends and ladies who love ladies first…
