Adrian Alicea Haute Couture Fashion Show 2012
Shout out to Shani of Stilettos&Sounds and Jewell stylist to the stars for the look out....
Sunday Sept 6, 2011 we were invited as press/media to a boutique kind of fashion show. The designer goes by the name of Adrian Alicea and of course I've never heard of him before. I arrived to the city only to get lost because the invite stated the address to be 160 Central Park West. When actually after chasing down cops for info, it was being held in a church on the corner of 75th and Central Park West. Now mind you it was definitley breezy and my idiot self didnt wear no coat that evening. We reach inside the church to be confronted with a long line of folks, I waved to my ole gurl Candice Cox of CandidArt Jewelry (whoo whoo) and proceeded to find the press line. At most of these events nothing is as it seems. There was no press line nor seating either(later on you'll see what I mean)
I found us seating in the second row inside the sancutary. Then made my way to the backstage area where there was plenty booty dangling and fine muscles exposed. All I could say was "oh my!" I liked. There was one model in particular that I saw was just too high siddity for no reason (smh) Ok Details now.... Show was scheduled for 7:20pm but instead started later, seating was unorganized and press was told to be seated in third row, like we suppose to see from way back there! I was ticked myself because the gentleman who told me to remove myself to back row as press, moved me because supposedly Nicki Minaj and family were to attend. Lets just say when I saw who was actually seated I asked the usher are those Nicki Minaj relatives and she nearly became speechless when asked. My point was made (smh). Anyhoot moving along, the show began with grammy nominated artist/actress Melba Moore. Melba sung with so much heart, too bad the microphone was muffled messing up the enjoyment of her holding such a high note. African inspired music started the show, the models strutted their stuff down the runway with 4' inch heels or higher. They were sexy, fresh, energtic, sassy, and moved with elegance. Adrian's fashion was seen to me as sexy mixed with rogue and raw. There were plenty of feathers in his work, which represented his travels to the rainforest. Funny from the sidelines there was plenty see in the audience also. One gay dude nearly tipped over in his chair to catch glimpse of the models penis size lol it was hilarious! A model by the name of Cristina Montanti captivated the audience as she graced the runway for she stood no taller than 4'11 and only 12 years old. She was gorgeous! I absolutely enjoyed the show and backstage. Oh and as for the seat we had to give up it was for Mary J. Blidge artist Nicki Terese and her family. Go figure huh? lol Congrads to Adrian Alicea on his 2012 fashion show and to the stars that supported him, especially wife Rebecca of actor Terry Cruz. She stirred the photographers and audience with her entrance in the beginning. Much appreciation to the drink of choice Moscato Cheers!
