Fashion Fights Cancer ~ Archives Launch


Seventh Ave in Manhattan is known worldwide for fashion but on Tuesday April 21st, the Audi Forum on Park Ave was the most posh spot in town. The 5th Annual Fashion Fights Cancer event was a stunner from start to finish.

As Fashiona entered Park Ave, she saw several models were artfully posed yet
mannequin still in the showroom windows.

Tyree(R) and O'Neal(L) had ingeniously launched their brainchild Archives.

Every few minutes the models would descend from their perch, work the room and change into another look from the collection. Fashiona had just interviewed the business partners, Tyree and O'Neal two weeks ago and was granted a sneak peak...but she was awed by the collection as a whole. The combination of vivid colors and expert workmanship was incredible.

Shay Baker(second from left) played double duty as stylist and designer of the hot shoe stockings showcased in several jaw dropping colors. Fashiona is second from the right.

O'Neal's passion and experience in costume design was evident in well draped garments that gracefully hugged the models curves.

Tyree, the right brain of the duo worked the room in part like a well respected diplomat shaking hands and making connections. Amid the fashion happenings, Nuvo was flowing, women were preening and the men were gazing appreciatively.

Surprise of the night....both Pierre and Briana from
Harlem Heights came through separately and nodded their approval of the night's events.

Models also showcased designs from Falls Design, Lotus Grace, Byron Lars Beauty Mark and Whistle and Flute. All the clothes that were showcased Tuesday evening were available for purchase and the proceeds went to St. Judes Hospital.

Fashiona and her shoe collection are already looking forward to next year's event.

The event was very nice (the cognac and Nuvo weren't bad either)! It was nice meeting the "Fashiona" as well.
