Luminaries in color is a non profit organization based out of Orlando, FL founded by my friend Sunny D. The purpose of the organization is to educate, empower, and inspire. The organization caters directly to the community by hosting networking events, as well as educational and inspirational workshops and seminars. Luminaries in color was started in hopes of creating harmony, support, and empowerment within the community. The mission is to set the community on the direct path of fulfillment, together as one. Luminaries in color also gives back by highlighting outstanding luminaries within the community and working directly with the youth and impoverished community, creating opportunities for growth.
The fashion show event was one of the highlighted attractions of the evening. I had the privilege to work with six beautiful women from various ethnic backgrounds and cultures. We incorporated the different ethnic cultures traditional garb with a modern flair. Queen Nefateri African roots led the runway followed by revolutionary Haiti with the mystique of Asia on the horizon, the natural allure of Spicy India mixes things up, while Indigenous beauty captivates the world, lastly- the sexiness of bountiful Italy tantalizes our senses.
The below clip is the rehearsal for the fashion show. The original plan was to have the ladies walk on the stage. However, the ramp was too steep and would had been an accident in waiting with women walking in heels.
The evening was a success! The Ladies were spectacular and it was an honor styling them in the modern cultural wear.
