I remember having a conversation with Lavender’s Jungle designer, LaKisha Baker last year while preparing for the PHAT Girl Fresh presents Life Styled event. She was telling me of her plans to execute a show in 2015. As she talked I could see it coming to life because of her skill and passion.
I remember years ago when I fell in love with Lavender’s Jungle, Mermaid Paint Collection. The colors were so vivid and there was something for every curvy woman in that collection. Since then, the brand has grown tremendously and continues to raise the bar in the plus size fashion industry.
On March 28, 2015, we will gather to celebrate the reality of La’Krisha’s dream. As she presents her first self produced show.
The show entitled The Fashion Playhouse is a magical night featuring exaggerated characters and exciting events that will provide the audience an interactive experience. Infusing fashion, theater and music La Krisha will debut five collections ranging from ready to wear garments to ball gowns.
This highly anticipated event is expected to attract some of Atlanta’s largest names in the industry and that is exactly what it has done. Celebrity Plus Model Kai Morae, daughter of actress LisaRaye McCoy has been added to the model line up. Working with Kai is familiar territory for the brand, during LaKrisha’s 2013 Spring campaign, she launched an underwater photo shoot which exclusively featured Kai. In addition, Bravo’s Married to Medicine Dr. Heavenly Kimes and KISS 104.1 Radio personality, Tawanda Black are among the latest of celebrities who have endorsed the show.
The show will kick off with a VIP pre-party featuring live music from R&B singer Joi Tiffany, hors d’oeuvre, champagne and exclusive VIP jungle bags. In addition, VIP ticket holders will receive complimentary valet parking and preferred seating.
I think that I speak for many of us in the curvy and fashion community when I say, I am eager to see the greatness that La’Krisha has given birth to. With so many women “surrendering the curves of our canvas to the artistry of La’Krisha’s imagination, there is no question that this event will be amazing in every way. This show will more than likely sell out, as V.I.P tickets are already sold out.
