Well whomever did, was totally wrong because these curvy ladies nailed it! Honey’s Child Boutique *Shop* hit a bullseye with their latest Fashion Look Book and Pop up shop. Oh Yes! Crazy.Sexy.Curvestm were all over the Anew Rooftop on 5/20/18. Models and guests traveled from Kansas City, Jefferson City and even Texas to be a part of the annual event. Among the entertainment were dancers and the host was Project Runway Winner Model Liris Crosse *Link*.
I was fortunate to be chosen after the audition to model at this years event. The decision to even try out, was motivated from being a part of the success of the inaugural event last year. From a Models perspective, I can appreciate the efficiency of the behind the scenes team, who organized everything to make sure we had all we needed. There were minor issues but nothing that wasn’t handled quickly and another person stepping in to help out. We even had fierce motivational talks from Rashaud during our rehearsals that inspired and fired us all up.
Those crunch time moments of making things happen defying the odds, is all about teamwork. Modeling is much more than simply walking in nice clothes. It takes a lot for us to prepare, train, overcome adversity, and mentally handle being judged on our outer appearances before our brains. Women traveled hours to rehearse in stormy weather, some had bruised ankles, transportation and money issues, but still made it through. Genuine commitment to your art as I feel modeling is to me, coupled with the camaraderie of a team of women working together to achieve a common goal are true measures of success.
