After taking a nearly three month hiatus (to take care of my mother as she recovered from her uterine cancer battle), I decided to make a comeback to the Baltimore fashion scene.
One of the most important stops on my Comeback Tour 2015 was attending American Breast Cancer Foundation‘s 3rd Annual Fashion Saves Lives.
My godmother and aunt Wanda is a breast cancer survivor. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate her live as well as others.
It was truly an honor to be invited to this event by Baltimore socialite, fashionista and owner of KIS Agency, Lana Rae.
My adventure started when I met up with Giselle Melrose. If you haven’t heard of this talented woman, she is the owner of The Melrose Experience. She is a professional make-up and hairstylist. Seriously, I am in love with her aqua hair.
Before the event, we had the chance to mingle with others and get a bite of local eats in the Baltimore area. Around 8:30 p.m., it was time to get seated for the Fashion Saves Lives fashion show.
I was happy to run into Andrea Tomlin, the designer of Mimidre (shhhh, we are collaborating on something for my readers and it drops this Sunday, November 1).
Fashion Saves Lives runway was filled with stories of survival, inspiration and importance of early detection of breast cancer. The models on the runway ranges from breast cancer survivors from John Hopkins Bayview Breast Center to professional models to Baltimore City police officers/firefighters and local celebrities. Not to mention the very entertaining and informative duo of Rebecca Klein and Keith Scott of TALLsmall.
