Fashion Industry Christmas Party

Designer Javan Reed, emcee for the fashion show held at Taverna Yamas. Javan is the creative director of Fashion Forward, Inc.; His focus is on the "everyday woman". The dresses that showcased were couture, high fashion and fun/flirty cocktail dresses. It is the holiday season and like every woman out there, I looked at these dresses with holiday parties in mind. 

The inspiration for the faces was New Year's Eve rooftop party. MUA: Erin Foster, Artistry by Erin.  

Designer: Kara Bazma 

Designer: Erin Healy

From the runway, to a night out (Sterling's birthday bash at Casa Marina)

Designer: Javan Reed
This sequin number is divine; it hugs the curves with shimmer and accentuates in all the right places. This is a fabulous dress for a holiday party, especially if you want to show-up and show-out. The shoe color was also the perfect complementary color for this dress.

Hillary (model on the right) not only walked in the fashion show but she did her own make-up. Why? She is also a MUA. You may remember her from the Certa magazine photo shoot, if not, see it HERE.

Just in case you were wondering how to "work" this Occeus Couture dress. Any questions?

Designer: Occeus Couture

Designer: Javan Reed
From his knitted collection, this maxi delivers! This dress made me want to hit the gym; it's form fitting (top half), then flares out, giving a beautiful silhouette of the legs. This dress is a showstopper that will definitely have heads turning.
