Fashion week is upon us! (well it’s tomorrow)! Soon, Spring 2012 fashions will be all the buzz! Leading up to Fashion Week, lots of other charitable and fashionable events take place. Like this one: Celebrities for Charity Beauty and Fashion Show in Philadelphia. My good friend Eboyne’, and her PR firm Divine Influence PR, helped organize this wonderful event! Check out some of the fashionably-worthy pics!
The event commemorated the launch of Naeemah Johnson’s charity, the Ruby Golden Foundation, as all proceeds from the event went towards purchasing necessary school supplies for needy children; ensuring that they start the school year off right.
The upscale event brought out some of the area’s best company of celebrities and taste makers to celebrate beauty and fashion for a good cause. Celebrities such as Queen B of the Hair Battle Spectacular (Oxygen Network), Kharisma Mcilwaine, (CW Philly correspondent,) 17 Days of Fashion co-founder/celebrity stylist, Anthony Henderson, Ty’ron Perrin of the Marquette Collection, celebrity stylist, Giovanni Styles, Tye Grays of Featherlicious247, Urban Xpressions, Tweety Elitou of Young, Hip, and Chic, Casamera Reavis and many more!
Guests received complimentary swag bags filled with the latest issue of Juicy Magazine, Milani Cosmetics, Pop Chips, fans by Asian Ideas, and Yagolicious gift cards. Music spun by DJ Marty Geez kept the crowd amped before the start of the show, while host, Show Bizz worked the crowd. A live runway show featuring the enchanting designs of Walish Gooshe, Lung Pearl, Eye Rock Art, Punch Line, Vamp Boutique, and the Marquette Collection stormed the runway. Lady Gaga’s background singer, Jazmine GOGO Morrow, Jaydon Thomas, and Kartinya rocked the stage with their live musical performances and background dancers. Comedian Muggman and his crew brought the laughs with his hilarious rendition of Osama bin Ladden’s fashion week.
Although Jazmine Sullivan and Charli Baltimore, headlining supporters of the Celebrities for Charity Beauty and Fashion Show were unable to attend the event due to last minute engagements, they both sent their praises.
“I am so proud of Naeemah and the people of Philly for stepping up and helping our kids,” Jazmine Sullivan said. “It always feels good to give but it feels even better to help our own! I couldn’t make it there because of a prior engagement, but I heard the turn out was wonderful! Hopefully this will be the beginning of many more!”
“It is important as artists that we support our future generation however we can,” Charli Baltimore said. “It’s great when people like Naeemah Johnson use their celebrity to organize such a positive event to promote education.”
Nbeauty Inc.founder, Naeemah Johnson also expressed her appreciation for all of the support. “The support was great! I appreciate all of the designers, celebrities, and press that came out. I also want to thank the general public who came out and supported to help raise money for school supplies for our children, and I can’t wait to do it again next year!”
