A new season. New people. New mindset. New opportunities. Everything is simply new. I don’t even feel like the same person. Things have change, for the better. Manifestation is upon me – I can’t even describe all that’s happening right now. But, persistence pays off.
Last week on Friday, September 6, I had the opportunity to walk in New York Fashion Week for designer Kahindo Mateene presenting her SS’14 Modahnik collection, a part of Harlem’s Fashion Row at Jazz @ Lincoln Center. I’ve walked in plenty of shows before, but this one was quite MAJOR! As I type this, I’m getting excited all over again. I have dreamed of this moment over and over and over again, and to see it come to pass was emotional and overwhelming! It was such a humbling experience because it has taken me two years to get to this point; there were many nights when I wanted to quit, BUT I couldn’t because there was something inside of me so strong that wouldn’t allow me to. My God! One step at a time. A step. That day was so special to me, one that I will always cherish – the lights, cameras, photographers, makeup, hair team, the excitement, the dim lights, the craziness before the show, and the runway! AHHHHH, such a major accomplishment for me! For a glimpse of my experience, be sure to check out some of the photos and videos below!
