Realities Ride Fashion Show 2014

Realities-Fashion-Show-2014-160LowRes.jpg

For the past four years, I have been apart of a fun and exciting event raising money for abused, neglected, and at-risk kids.  REALITIES RIDE.  For the past four years, Marketing & Events Director of Realities For Children, Jennifer, contacts me with some brilliant idea for an entertainment piece.  We've had Pin-Up Girls in 2011, Steampunk Girls & Performing Emcees in 2012, Circus Freaks in 2013, and now the Bikerette Fashion Show in 2014.

When I dive into something, I do it full force...even if I say I will just take a small part in it.  Yeah right!  I just can't help it!  While Realities For Children took on the planning and marketing of the show, I jumped in with both feet as director, hair, makeup, and fashion stylist.

I ran with the idea of Biker inspired clothing.  From Street Wear, Chic, Bike Wear, and Edgy.  For those who ride and those who do not dream of riding... I think there's a little biker in all of us ;-)
