Fashion Fighting Famine

The 2013 Fashion Fighting Famine show held in Irvine, CA was a night to remember. Not only is Fashion Fighting Famine the largest Muslim designer fashion show, it also supports different charities every year by donating 25% of the proceeds. A night full of so many talented designers, beautiful ladies and great company. Making the trip to Cali all the way from Philly was definitely worth it, and I'm going to make sure all my East coast ladies plan ahead to attend the 2014 show. The event started with a pre-show bazaar followed by the fashion show and then the post-show bazaar. I was so consumed with running around taking pictures with my brother that I didn't get a chance to head to the bazaar till after the fashion show. For those of you who were there, you saw me walking around with a big tall guy with a lot of hair, that is my brother. He was the photographer for the night both for the show and for me, haha. Here are some pictures from the event, if you save any of these pictures and share them elsewhere, I just ask that you caption it with my website please as my brother worked hard to get these pictures for my blog. Thank you!

After an hour of calling nail salons all around, I finally found one lovely lady that happened to be open on Easter Sunday. She did a great job on my tribal nails and was such a nice lady!
