"Modeling 4 A Cause" Fashion Show

Hey bloggers and bloggettes! It sure has been a minute since my last post. I hope everyone is enjoying his/her holiday season. I wanted to share with you all my latest show pics. Some of these looks you may have seen on my website or Facebook but for those who have not, here you go!!!! The event was called "Modeling 4 A Cause" which raised money to benefit the local Big Brothers Big Sisters organization as well as to help with the restoration of a local historical landmark, Dreamland Ballroom. The event was held at Dreamland Ballroom and although the venue is old, it was such a beautiful setting. The building is located on Little Rock, Arkansas's W 9th street downtown, which used to be referred to as "Little Harlem" in the 1920s. That's the feel I got when I entered the building before even knowing the history. So many greats performed there which is quite amazing!! So, it's definitely worth saving. Ok, here are pics that were taken during the practice run-through my models did prior to the show. Oh yeah, did I mention I was the featured designer?? ;)

Heel Condoms?!

Ok, I had to share this thanks to a fellow blogger.  WOW!!!  Check out these so très chic shoe accessories.  There are two styles, "condom" and "panty" styles.  Anyone who knows me is aware of my shoe fetish so this is just what I needed to add that little extra!!  Below are just a few pics I pulled from the site to give you an idea of why I got so excited when I saw these.

And there are soooo many more!!!  Go to to see the entire collection.  AMAZING!!!

Cirque de Couture "N’cholé Féroce Style" & Other Updates

Hello lovelies!! I know it's been awhile since you last heard from me here but there has been so much going on since Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW). A LOT!!! If you follow me on Twitter or if you are friends with me on Facebook then you already know about it all. If not, I will do my best to get you up to speed on what's been going on with N’cholé Féroce™. First of all, I have to thank God for all the things that have happened since LRFW. So many blessings have come from all over the place. I have picked up several clients and one of my designs was even featured in the High Profile section of the Sunday Arkansas Democrat-Gazette over Labor Day weekend. The newspaper clip is posted below. I had no idea it would be used to show some of the Fall 2011 trends. Talk about someone EXCITED!!!

Design: "Crown Royal"
Model: Salem Jones

As if last week couldn't get any better, I competed in the 2nd Annual SARPA (Sexual Assault Recovery & Prevention Agency) Cirque de Couture Design Competition in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and finished with 2nd place.  It still felt like 1st place to me because it was something that made me push myself out of my comfort zone.  It was a lot of fun and there's no price a person can place on exposure.  Below are pictures of my models from the competition.  Click on the pictures to get a closer look at their jeweled faces!!! 
Design:  "Mysterious"
Model:  Mallory Meek

Design:  "Tiffany Glam"
Model:  Lashawnda Rhys

Design:  "Flamingo"
Model: D arretta Nelson

Design:  "Peacock Goddess"

Be sure to check out The Compassion Fashion Project blog as well for an awesome feature they did on N’cholé Féroce™.  I'm so grateful to them for all the support they have shown!  And as always, I loooooovvve your comments!  Thanks for your support!!!  Stay tuned because this is just the beginning!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shots from Little Rock Fashion Week 2011

Little Rock Fashion Week 2011........WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I don't believe there are any words for how AMAZING the week-long event truly was.  I gained so many new friends I'm sure will become lifetime connections, on both business and personal levels.  In addition, my line obtained a tremendous amount of exposure.  All the hard work paid off!! 

Based on the feedback I have received, my show was a big success.  Not only was this show meant to bring exposure, it was also a competition.  We should know by the end of this week who will hold the "Clothing Line of the Year" award.  **fingers crossed**  I'll let you all know the turnout once the news has been announced.

Below are a few pics from different events throughout the week.  Professional photos of my Fall/Winter Collection will be posted on my website at a later date.  I will post here once those have been added.  Stay tuned!!

It's Almost Showtime!!

I know it's been awhile since last I posted but I'm sure you all can understand why.  There has been so much going on with getting prepared to debut N’cholé Féroce at Little Rock Fashion Week 2011 (LRFW), which is just a little under two weeks away.  I can hardly believe it!  It seems like I just found out two weeks ago that I made it.  This experience has been an emotional rollercoaster of highs and lows with the highs definitely outweighing the lows.  Anxiety is to blame for the lows, no doubt.  When a person wants something so badly as I do being named "2011 LRFW Clothing Line of the Year", there is always going to be potential for anxiety to build.  I'm so happy to have a strong support system around me to help push pass those times.  Overall, this has been such a wonderful experience.  I'm looking forward to what's to come!!

After LRFW I plan to post pics of my debut collection, Elegance x Edge on my website.

I appreciate all my followers and the support you all have shown me over this past year.  Your support and encouragement have meant a lot to me.  <3

Design of the Day - "Jamaica"

When I saw this fabric, the first thing I thought of was JAMAICA and a vacay!!!!  Easy, flowing cotton that is so soft to the touch.  All day comfort while looking stylish.  Currently, I have one dress left (size 4 but stretches to a 6 nicely).  This dress goes for $45 as is.  If you are a lady who likes a shorter hemline, it will be an additional $5 to alter.  I plan to have more sizes soon.  I'll post when they are available or you may contact me via email to reserve your size.  As always, thanks for stopping by!!

Design of the Day - "Spring into Sexy"

YAYYY!!  Spring is REALLY here now and I couldn't be happier.  The sun shining brightly along with this gorgeous weather is perfect for this "flowy" design.  I had a lot of fun making this dress.  It was my first time to literally drape and start cutting into the design I envisioned.  I call this design "Spring into Sexy" because 1) the colors definitely put me in the springtime mindset and 2) I felt very "classy-sexy" when I put it on.  Sexy doesn't have to be skin tight. My husband loves this look and I have to honestly say I love it too!

Design of the Day: "Black Panther"

My latest creation....I hope you like it!  The fabric has wavy designs and I lined it with red satin, per my client's request.  I added the pleather to the top side of the collar to add a little more edge.  I like how it turned out.  What do you all think??

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Design of the Day: "Blueberry Lemonade"

Today's design is actually a rework of a few pieces.  The blue and yellow discs were originally earrings my sister, Rasolyn had.  While I was visiting her during the holidays I saw the earrings and absolutely loved them but soon figured out why she didn't wear them.  They were too heavy for her earlobes :(  So, of course, that gave me inspiration to create something for her to be able to wear.  I am happy with how this set turned out.  She hasn't seen it yet...LOL!  I do plan to mail it to her today though :)

"Black Swan"

Today's design is my latest creation.  Thanks to a friend, I have named it "Black Swan" and by looking at it you can see why.  The fabric is a mix of rayon and knit and it's very soft.  There were only two of these made (one for my BFF and myself) so sorry to those of you who may have wanted one :(  However, if you like the cut of the dress and/or wrap, I would be happy to create this again, just with a different fabric.  I am happy with how this turned out and I hope you all like it as well.  As always, your comments are welcomed and appreciated.
