Fashion Fashion Fashion! I have been covering these events for Bold Curves for a couple of shows and I love these ladies and the designers. Ms Danielle puts these various shows together in Richmond to bring awareness to fashion in the area and to feature curvy girls and the fashion for them. She is doing an excellent job and I am glad to help and be a part of her team!
There’s a new and unique alternative to hiring our heroes. Prowess steps away from traditional employment and launched the nation’s first fashionable employment initiative. Founded, operated and owned by veterans in spring 2015, Prowess is making its mark by penetrating an industry typically not pursued as a career change for service members in transition. The military has taught our nation’s heroes to adapt and overcome any obstacle; if they can march, then they can surely strut the runway with the best of them.
Prowess’ fleet includes, Prowess Women, Prowess Men, Prowess Curvy, Prowess Physique and Prowess Brats. U.S. military bases have Military Exchanges, which bring in hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue each year – a majority of the consumers are service members and their families. Troops and their families enjoy popular brands at Military Exchanges, such as, Coach, Ralph Lauren, Lucky Brand, Tommy Hilfiger, Bali, Hanes, Under Armour, Nike, Levis and Michael Kors and many more. The time has come where we should walk into any Military Exchange or Fashion Week and see these designers represented by our nation’s finest!
If veterans have modeling on their bucket list, then they are perfect candidates for Prowess. Interested veterans should contact Prowess at email@example.com and visit their website, www.prowessmodels.com, for additional information about the agency.
Being in the DMV for two years has been an eye opening experience in many ways. One way was to be able to discover the local fashion scene here in the city and it only took two years to find out that DC has a fashion week. I was fortunate enough to be able to cover three of the events they had starting with the mens fashion show on the first night. The second event I covered was the emerging designers of the area and eight designers were featured. The finale night, which was my favorite, showcased a lot of the international designers that live here in the DMV area. Below are just a few of the images I was able to show on this blog but believe me there were plenty of amazing designs this year! I can't wait to see what the next season will bring for this DC designers.
