So...I've gone on enough already about the event....but finally, now that I have a moment to breathe I wanted to take the chance to enlighten you on what went down and show you some great images from the event.....
Early May saw the crew setting up camp in Midwood High School in Brooklyn, the venue where the SUNY Downstate Medical Centre was hosting their AMAZING initiative to educate and engage young people on the reality of HIV/AIDs and how it could be prevented as well as provide a day of seminars, fun activities, the fashion show and also the chance to be screened and seek advice...
The event was organised by and I hopped on board to co-ordinate!
I was honoured to finally meet and get to work with the girls who had been helping me in month running up to me arriving in New York...and it was a total well as lots of fun!!!! Erica, Asha, Amy and Diana....thank you SOOOO much for all your AMAZING help in making the magic (and thanks also for picking me up off the floor and getting me new tights when I fell over!!!)
Also I was excited that the superstar tropical stylist and fashion editor extraordinaire, Alexis Knox, jetted all the way over NYC to support the project as well as lend her styling genius!!She also worked alongside myself and Adenike Omisore, a fantastic and super lovely NYC based all in all we were the dream team!
My favourite EVER tights brand, Celeste Steine, very very generously sponsored all hosiery for the show so I'm thanking the lovely Selina from Mytights MUCHO! I also want to say massive thanks to another couple of brands that have been fantastic in supporting both my own brand as well as the NYC Against HIV BIG WOOOP for Softlips, Doc Martens and New Era!!!!

OHHH....and the Hair and Make Up was awesome....Make-Up was directed by Steven Canavan who flew in from Paris to create some AMAZING looks with his fantastic team! I was also excited to meet Xenia/ Doe Deer Founder and owner of Lime Crime Make-up who joined the team and also very kindly supported the cause by donating gift cards for our juicy goody her work..check her out...

We felt it was so incredibly important for the kids at the school to get involved and be part of this amazing event....and it was a pleasure to have their helping hands throughout the week!!! Some of the kids also modelled in the show and we also got the Midwood High School Marching band involved in the extravaganza!!!

And before I bore you to death by going on FOREVER....i'm going to leave you with a few images!!!
But, I would LOVE to say MASSIVE thank you to Raoul at for
inviting me to join the team, as well as Ninette at Designers Against Aids for introducing me to this endeavour....and of course Karen Jemmot from the SUNY Downstate Medical well as the entire team of supporters, creatives, helpers, sponsors and models that made it all possible!
Ok...sit back and enjoy the photos!

New York New York!!!

So...where to start...the last month or so has been pretty thin on the ground in the gossip stakes....the reason being that the past few weeks I have dedicated myself to supporting the NYC AGAINST HIV event so it's been super busy in preparation!!!
And it was totally worth it!
I spent last week over in the US based at the venue, Mid
wood High School in Brooklyn which was awesome and like stepping into a Zac Efron movie...yes please!!
Hall monitors, marching bands, flags and stuff...AMERICAN STYLE! Yes please!
I was excited to be staying with my old housemate Paige...we lived together in Hell's Kitchen when I was interning in NY a couple of years a I set up camp in Queens!!!
It was a crazy week of model castings, make-up tests, styling....all sorts and we were so lucky to have an AWESOME team helping support!!!!(THANK YOU SOOO MUCH GUYS!!!)
So you have already heard the whole spiel about the event over th
e past few weeks....see below if you haven' I'm just going to give you the good stuff!! For example the fun show stuff and the gossip....although there's only so much juicy gossip you can get from hanging out in a high school!!!
Ooh yes...lots of fun and pizza times....I especially liked me and Alexis being mistaken for students!!!

Yes....and I took the most spectacular tumble that you could ever imagine....broad the middle of a road...straight into a puddle...yes...blood dripping down the leg...glasses and laptop had to be fished out the puddle....yes my cigarette was still lit!!!however...I did lose a lovely pair of tights in the whole spectacle!!!
And the show was amazing!!! It was a huge success and the auditorium was packed to bursting! We also had some of the students model in the show as well as the models!!! We had a full blown marching band in the mix complete with flag twirlers and a super special performance from the most awesome band EVER...."JAIME AND I"....check them this space for the full low down on the team, the show and special photos...COMING SOON!!!
