DC CW50 Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle Expo 2012
Over recent years I have heard plenty about DC CW50 Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle Expo; and being a fan of America Next Top Model since the beginning I couldn’t help but stare at the FBL commercials. It’s been a long time coming! And it’s unfortunate that this year was my first time attending the expo and it was absolutely a great experience. It’s an honor to also add that Nanichi played a big part in me being present. This year Nanichi was invited to be a part of DC CW50 Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle Expo as a vender. I would like to thank everyone who stopped by and shopped at booth #507. I met many awesome fans, supporters and patrons as well as fashion contributors such as Ms.J Alexander and Jaslene Gonzalez.
Thanks to my team Celebrity, entertainment and nightlife photographer Mateo Photography, Models Kim Ryan, Rita Drayton, Mari Loh, and Milochka Tshibingu as well as Makeup Artist: Mackenzie Plus Me.
