This past weekend I had the pleasure of debuting a few pieces from Bijoux and
working alongside Ken Lawrence     in styling his Spring Fashion Preview.
 It was an amazing night held for a wonderful cause, women with Heart Disease.
 Also, on this night UPGRADE magazine released a preview of their new
 and improved mag layout, featuring House of DeVinci and Bijoux!

Mii at the Fitting before the show!!

I know the pic is a little grainy but it's the only one I have of everybody right now.
Miss Black Alabama, on the right, is also wearing a gown sponsored by House of DeVinci for the Red Heart Truth Red Dress Campaign as the National Platform for the Miss Black USA Organization. Job well done to the hosts and sponsors of the event!



In a previous post I talked about Christian Siriano's Spring 2010
shoe collection for Payless, as worn by A.Rose,

 BUT today...I saw an even more impressive collection for Fall 2010.
 Feast your eyes on these...

On Thursday I awoke to a text message from my collegue Ken Lawrence, a designer currently based in Birmingham, telling me that our FAVE off the wall, most innovative, and creative designer Alexander McQueen had passed away. It's so wierd because we were just talking about McQueen's scarves and how much we loved them the night before.
 No words could explain the feeling I had upon hearing this....I was truly shocked! Knowing that he was definitely one of the only designers left in my opinion who ::REALLY:: took chances and was basically ::EXTRA:: in all that he did! Ken is really inspired by Alexander McQueen and I dedicate this post to him and the late designer.

Many blessings and prayers are with him.

Though I am saddened by this loss, I am happy to announce and proclaim
success for the House of Devinci. On February 21, 2010 Ken Lawrence will be holding a viewing for his Spring Collection at the Downtown Wine Loft. It's going to be night to remember.

 SO...if you are in or around the Birmingham area be sure to make an
 appearance and be on your best dressed behavior because I am!
 Also there will be a few jewelry pieces featured that night so stay tuned!
