Over the week I attended A Saphyre Affair “Pink Saturday Hair and Fashion Show” at the Gala Center. In an effort to support survivors and those who may have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer, the ASA (A Saphyre Affair) team fused fashion and awareness to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month in style.
Upon entering the venue each guest received a Miss Jessie gift bag and was greeted by the lovely Mrs. International Beautiful Laquisha Hall warm smile. Guest was treated to light refreshments and was able to shop at the vendor tables.
The vendors that were in attendance were:
Girl Mischief one of kind jewelry that were made from hardware and slay bells…absolutely stunning.
Body Magic who boasted that you could loose up to 2-3 sizes in 10 minutes with out diet or exercise.
Cheryl’s Bracelet Bar arm candy was made out of gemstones and diamond encrusted pink ribbons.
Tara’s House of Styles who specializes in natural hair care and styles was also there with her Naturally Beautiful t-shirts.
Also in attendance were Astonishing Handmade, Temptations Party and Fashionably Advantage Magazine.
After the reception our host of the evening Kibwe D. Ali took the stage to welcome the guest and introduce the speakers for the evening. Andrene M. Taylor owner of Zuri Works spoke about her 3x battle with cancer. She credits her lifestyle of healthy living on sustaining her. The keynote address was given by the Sisters Network a national African American breast cancer and survival network. After the speakers the host led us into the Wobble. At first the attendees were a little nervous but after seeing some us (me) not do it right, the steppers got up to show us how it was suppose to be done. After getting the crowd warmed up the elegant fashion show started.
The runway featured fashion forward designs by Shear Audacity Hair Salon, Le Sheea, Inc., LKGE Boutique and Saphyre Designs. CynDiva serenaded the breast cancer survivors with her sweet voice. After the serthat the survivors of Breast Cancer sashay down the runway with their heads held high. Seeing the survior was the highlight of the night. Special thank you goes out to Jamila of Naturalgaldiary.com and Shannel Roberson CEO of A Saphyre Affair who made the entire event happen.
