Year in recap

Hi Everyone,

A whole year has gone by since my last post and so much has happened since then!! WOW! Let me just take a moment to update you on what we've been up to.

Fall 2005 -

Henri Bendel: Diva Bugs was offered the opportunity to show our wares to the folks at Henri Bendel in NYC. Although our purses were not selected for a trunk show we were really excited about the opportunity. The trip to NY was amazing. We had the opportunity to network with other designers some of whom have become amazing inspirations and friends.

During that trip we attended the Annual International Fabric Show in NY with some of the designers we met at the HB show. It was great seeing the different colors, textures and fabric designs available for large and small design houses.

Fall Fashion Show (charity - Dress for Success):

So as a way to introduce Diva Bugs to the community - I planned a fashion show at Busboys and Poets last Fall. The show was a great hit and we were able to raise a few hundred dollars for my favorite charity - Dress for Success. (www.dressforsuccess.org) The show went off without a hitch.

Kudos to my co-producer Babatunde, all our models and all the local stores and designers that participated in the show. We want to again thank - Busboys and Poets, Lynelle Boutique, Brian Evans, Nana, Trade Secrets and Habitat.

Before the show....

After the show... ok we goofed on the pics of the show. But here are some pics of me, the models and some friends. We are all celebrating the show. And if you look at the group photo - Laura on the right is wearing a cream Diva Shawl and Nakia on the left is holding a black ostrich feather Racquel purse.

March 2006 - Hotel Monaco Show:

Okay... so the earlier part of this year was spent preparing for the Hotel Monaco event to benefit Dress for Success. It was a great show! We had lots of visitors to our table and our new collection debuted that night as well.
