Well, I can now officially check “walking in a New York Fashion Week show” off of my list! Recently, I hit the runway for the introduction of new fashion brand Livari, a zero waste and ethically sourced label that focuses on empowering women and helping the environment. Created by the environmental and feminist activist and award-winning actress from Orange is the New Black, Alysia Reiner, my good friend and bad a$$ celebrity stylist and founder of Caravan Stylist Studio, Claudine DeSola and Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs, the designer behind Tabii Just and is the Youth Initiatives Coordinator for the Women’s March movement!!!! These incredible women created this new brand, to take their cause further and empower women through fashionable clothing that is made ethically and sustainably.
For the premiere Livari fashion show, they partnered with brands who promote environmental and social change such as Cool Effect, Ivy, and Brother. Hosted by Kia and Style360 NYFW, myself, as well as my fellow models were chosen to walk in the show to help spread the brand’s social impact. The tee shirt I’m wearing in the show detailing a backbone on the back represents the idea that women are the backbone of society — which, ahem we are! And I’m obsessed with my high-waisted, red skirt, which has pockets!!!!!!!!!
Also while, you’re checking out my back side, it’s hard to miss my epic braid created by Not Your Mother’s hair care and as a big fan of makeup artist and founder of the Makeup Show, James Vincent, I was so thrilled that he lead the makeup team and had the honor of him doing my makeup. Sunglasses are a variety of brands from Sunglass Hut.
