I am truly obsessed with attending fashion forward events. Now when I heard about Pinnacle 360◦ Fashion Experience, I thought to myself “okay another fashion show in Cincinnati, OH”. But I love to support other small businesses, because guess what I am a small business owner & I can relate. So, I decided to attend this 360◦ Fashion Experience. I tell you my experience was not just “another fashion show” in Cincinnati. It gave me life!

Getting ready for this event my outfit was planned; hunter green deep-v bodysuit from Forever21, lime green thick fabric pleated skirt from H&M, Gold Metallic Peep Toe heels (Yanka) & Hunter Green Purse (Money Bag) both heels & purse is from Barcode Glam. You all know I had to rock my brand. Anyways my make-up; I wore Fenty Beauty Match Stix Matte Skinstick (Caramel) best concealer for me, Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder (6 Golden) as my base, MAC Eye Brow Styler (Spiked) my go to brow filler, Make Up Forever Pro Bronze Fusion Bronzer (30M) gave my cheeks some color, Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter (Trophy Wife) absolutely in love with this highlighter & House of Uni lipstick mix (Fiji & Limelight). Side note: I want to thank Sephora for having the Beauty Insider program, if it wasn’t for that I would not be able to tell you what I wore to beat my face (lol) truth! Anyway, I did what I always do; I got dressed to make a statement. Now my top was a little too deep of a V & I had a lot of boob action in all my pictures but that isn’t what made me stand out from the crowd. I was bold with color, a fashionistas style that night.

When we came into the event space (we mean me & my intern Lanre); we immediately took a picture with the step & repeat background. Since the line was too long for the bar we went to the show room floor on the 29th floor of COLUMBIA PLAZA. The space was raw (raw mean still in the middle of redesign) some of the designers sketched their designs on a single drywall #dope. After mixing & mingling we found our seats, had a mini photo shoot & waited for the show to start. The fashion show was amazing; I was very surprised our upcoming fashion designers put on a show like the bigger cities aka New York, Chicago & etc… Most of the designers had their models walk with a few poses but when GRIND AND GLAZE designer had their models stand on the runway I was so proud. I was proud that someone that creative is from a small city where I reside. The rest of the show was great!

My top 3 designers from the show; #1 GRIND AND GLAZE for their creative show & line, #2 CALLE EVANS for the feminine appeal & clean lines & #3 FWHLR for their urban edginess. I can see myself wearing each of their pieces. Thanks to Cincy Chic for letting me know about this wonderful experience. I hope there is more upcoming events like this in the city. Check out each one of these upcoming designers & support the small business in the area. We all have a dream & they were one of the few to see their dreams come true in real life.
