Douglas Says Fashion Show

I was able to make it to the fashion show of a co-worker friend from the Ground Crew  after missing his show for the past couple years. He showed to a full house at the Newark Library. It was a really nice show worthy of being seen at the tents.
Please forgive my blurry photos. My digital camera did not want to cooperate and it's not very good with taking pictures of moving objects. Also the angle was not the best and I could barely get a good clear picture of any of the models...*sigh*. It is what is though. It was a really nice show and I am so glad I went. I wish Douglas Says  much success!       

 This is the awesomely wonderful Lu Sierra! I have been a fan of hers since the 80's when models really knew how to model and had personality. This woman knows how to work the runway. I so wish more models knew how to do it half as well as Lu!

 Lu has so much personality and brings the outfits/gowns she wears to life!

 Worki it Lu!

Strike a pose for one final look over the shoulder!

RIP Lou Meyers

Lou Leabengula Myers (September 26, 1935 – February 19, 2013)
better known as Mr Gaines from the tv show A Different World. 

I got to meet Lou Meyers in a Duane Reade  up on 125th street after the Micheal Jackson Tribute at the Apollo in 2009. I ducked into the store to get out of the rain and noted him. I wan't sure at first until other people started chatting with him and taking pictures. He was kind enough to take this one with me. May God rest his soul.

Fashion Week In and Around the tents, Part One

After my final show on Wednsday 2/13, I went up to the tents with a couple of coworkers who had another show. I went to get some goodies from the tents, but before we went inside we took a little ride. The video called "The Ride of  Lifetime". For the opening of the latest James Bond Film, Skyfall, they had Astin Martins available for free rides! I never considered myself a sporty car person, but it was a fun ride. Our driver was a professional race car driver, the ride was that much more fun!

Sorry the picture is blurry, my camera didn't seem to want to focus. This is the Astin Martin aka James Bond car from across the street before we crossed over

This was our driver for the fun ride!

No for the cars inside the tent...Mercedes Benz.
