While I do not know Sharon personally, I had the pleasure of meeting her this year at the Full Figured Fashion Week finale. Although the show was officially over, she was giving advice to a model as she asked for a photo. I took the photo with pleasure because I wanted the chance to be photographed with a woman I consider a legend. As the model and I swapped places, Sharon looked at me and said, “you know I really don’t like these damn things (speaking of my head wrap), my niece wears them all the time but for some reason, I like this one!” Well of course you know that made my night and in the words of my Grandma, “you couldn’t tell me my sh*t didn’t stank” LOL!!!! That is just who Sharon is, a loving woman who embraces and nurtures other women but is straight up at all times. I am sure that her knowledge, love for the industry and tell it like it is stance on life is sure to make this show a huge success.
