'Fro Fashion Week Spring 2012

I attended 'Fro Fashion Week at Hotel Melia in Atlanta for a few hours on Saturday and saw some of MVL's favorite folks {Myleik Teele of curBOX, Felicia Leatherwood of Loving Your Hair With Natural Care, Ken Burkeen of Huetiful, Tia of If I Were a Brit Girl, Trina of The Baby Shopaholic, and Eboni - The Fashionista Next Door}. I've been trying to get to the celebration of natural hair, beauty and style since first hearing of it last spring. Naturally Me! Media LLC hosts a phenomenal presentation of workshops, vendors and events centered on natural hair as a lifestyle. Some workshops included: Transitioning to Natural Hair, How to Make Your Own Coconut Oil, and Thermal Straightening. I was only able to attend Design Essentials' class previewing it's new Natural Line and demonstration of the products, which feature a lot of butters and oils to help maintain texture by giving you the weight and moisture you need to enhance your natural curl. I also looked in on one by Kynx and best of all  spent some time in my host Shea Moisture's Total Body Spa. Yes, Shea Moisture was offering an introduction to all of it's luscious products, 30-minute massages and light manicures. After a long week, I needed that in my life. I even got some tips from another MVL friend Chimole Williams of Shea Moisture on how to get a better twist out finish with the Curl Enhancing Smoothie.

After a few minutes chatting with Tarin Boone, the CEO of Naturally Me Media and founder of 'Fro Fashion Week, my experience on the whole made sense. One of her main intents when organizing the event was that brands would have an opportunity to really engage with customers. Done 

I'll definitely be back in September.

  2. I had sooooo much fun and you're right, it was definitely a different experience the normal trade shows and conferences. I did spend a lot of one on one time with several of the vendors. It was really awesome!

  3. Ooh, I wish I could have been there to join the festivities....maybe the next venue will be in the Twin Cities Minneapolis MN!
