MECKLENBURG INTERNATIONAL FASHION WEEK
WHO WE ARE
I’ve always followed my heart and it’s gotten me this far. I’m highly intuitive and draw inspiration from the world around me. From a young age, I knew I wanted to promote fashion and make the dreams of young designers come true, a dream that became a reality in 2001. Since then, I’ve tried to get involved in a variety of projects, all of which have somehow become part of my ongoing creative journey.
To positively influence full broad-base citizen participation in mental health prevention through espousal, recommendation, training and services to address social-emotional challenges that are currently facing our nation.
MIFW envisage a healthy society which is equitable and passionate toward high quality, culturally, competent mental health treatment, awareness and services regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity or gender.
The African Lady Fashion Show
What an experience, backstage is packed with models, designers, managers, stylists, makeup artists, hairdressers, publicists, and other fashion elite who are there to ensure a fabulous show. Photographers trying to squeeze in a few dozen shots and be politely shoving each other around to document the event.
“Fashion is art.” Fashion shows are not events that designers use to showcase what you’ll be able to buy in stores the very next day. Instead, a fashion show is a chance for a designer to show off a particular aesthetic, a particular mood, a particular feel or point of view. As a result, African Lady Summer collection showcase fashion that tend to be more conceptual and focused on a higher level idea.

“Everything has beauty in it, but not everyone sees it”
The Full Picture
Beauty is everywhere. I’ve learned to express this through fashion, and since 2001 it has become my life’s work. From a young age, I understood I had a calling, and I’m lucky to have found success in my vocation.
Mecklenburg International Fashion Week Show is inspired by the unusual and by the ordinary, by the colors provided and the colors created, by mother earth and the universe. I follow trends and apply them to my work, always trying to stay ahead of the curve. Interested in collaborating on a future project or will love to sponsor the next show in May 2023?
