Los Angeles Ford Fiesta Fashion Week Hits Fresno!

Los Angeles based “Ford Fiesta Fashion Week” will make a stop at Fresno’s Fashion Style Lounge on September 30, 2010 at 6:00pm at Woodward Park Amphitheater. The “Ford Fiesta Fashion Week” hosted by Hollywood Fashion Celebrities, Parris Harris and Sebastian St. George, have achieved great success by stylishly promoting the 2011 Ford Fiesta in its fashion shows all over Southern California and Las Vegas. Ford Motor Company branded the social marketing campaign as “The Fiesta Movement” with Parris Harris and Sebastian St. George being two of 40 Fiesta Agents in the Nation. http://www.fiestamovement2.com/ You can view the new 2011 Ford Fiesta sponsored by Lithia Ford at Fashion Style Lounge.

The fashion runway show will include an extraordinary exhibit of hair and fashion. Ajmal Layla is an expression of silent beauty and mid-eastern fashion presented by hair designer, Isaac Huerta and theatrical makeup artist, Maha Ahmed.

Activation Speciation is a spectacle of evolutionary fashion as seen in the eyes of its creator, Lindsey Zielger. Lindsey coordinates many fashion shows in Fresno, San Francisco, and Orange County and was offered the opportunity to be FSL’s Fashion Show Creative Director.

Parris Harris will reveal his unique display of fashion reinvention with Punk Mail. Wires, tape, stickers , foam animals, chains, the kitchen sink (JK) and other treasuries that may assemble a shirt or dress; Punk Mail recycles, recreates, and redirects a garments path in the eyes of Parris Harris. The crowed will definitely be entertained and surprised by this runway expose.

Fashion Style Lounge or FSL is not like other fashion shows in Fresno because every show is different. One constant element; it brings together local and LA based indie fashion and accessory designers along with beauty experts and products. Guests can shop, eat, drink, take a picture, and meet new people who all have the same thing in common….fashion. One guest described FSL, “I felt like we were characters straight out of a scene from “Sex and the City.” Where else can you see a 100 foot runway?

Fashion Style Lounge takes place on September 30, 2010 at 6pm. This is a 21+ event benefiting local non-profit, A Spoonful of Sugar. Tickets available at PC Solutions, www.fashionstylelounge.com or call Falina Marihart at 559-487-1091 for more details. Thank you to Lithia Ford, Avecinia Wellness Center, Zarcone Salon, The Standard, and PC Solutions for their support.

Motorcycle Doo-Rag Goes Custom!!

So I have been getting requests to add logos, rhinestones, feathers, etc. to my hats and I think it's great. I love the fact you can customized this hat to your own style. I have a few more orders to work on but as soon as I have them done, I will post pics. Personally, I like the classic black look when I wear my bad ass hat!

An Upscale Doo-Rag?

My motorcycle-inspired Bad Ass hat is like, or better yet, it is an Upscale Doo-Rag. (That's weird to hear "upscale" and "doo-rag" in the same sentence.) My recent meeting with Renegade Classics owner, Debbie Mortimer, confirmed my thoughts on marketing this hat to women riders.
Renegade Classics is a motorcycle retailer sporting everything you need and want from brands like Harley-Davidson, Renegade Classics logo gear, and you name it, Private Plane Originals.
After wearing a helmet, women don't want to sport helmet hair so the best thing to do is top it off with a hat. Now with my original design, the Bad Ass hat, women riders can simply wear the hat with the helmet over it like a traditional doo-rag. I hate to think of my hat as a "rag" but for women riders everywhere, it's one cool, fashionable rag!
