THE CHRIS AIRE FASHION SHOW (and the NS1463 connection)

before i begin, may i say that words can not describe how Amazing the show was. It was an experience for me...

So i get a call from Chris Aire telling me that he needed some shirts for his Hollywood Glamour Collection show (Nigerian Gold and gemstones)...did not know we had gold/gemstones in naija, but that's a diff story. So I say yes but only had two weeks to come up with a design, get it approved, print the shirts, package them, buy a buy ticket to LA and get there on time. But NS came thru with flying colors hommie! lol
Fast forward two weeks later i am in LA now; go to meet up with chris, show him the shirts which he loves but i also find out that the design we did was used on the cover of the event booklet. Loving that!!! I head back home to get some rest for the show the next day.

next day we arrive at the beverly hills hotel at 8pm, get into the reception area and it was SOOO cool. celebrities everywhere from the host of the shows Cedric and Andrien Brody to - Eva Marcille (my , Jermaine jackson, Melyssa Ford, Gary Peyton, Tank, Dbanj, Tracee Ellis Ross to name only a few...
Doors open up at 9pm and the show starts with a presention of Nigeria's Gold and Gemstones and then a speech by Honorable Minister Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke which blew me away. She so represented Nigeria I was proud to say i was from Nigeria.... anyway, they were performanes by R&B singer Tank and DBANJ. (Tank was a late replacement for Robin Thicke whose wife just had a baby). Dbanj killed it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3/4 of the people had no clue what he was sayin but at least they knew he was upper body endowed, lower body endowed, his pocket is endowed, and his car is

After the performances, then the runway show; and then we headed upstairs to have some more fun.... enjoy the pictures
