Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey fashion design contestant
March 16, 2014
At the Fashion Awards MD 2014 Emerging Awards Event - Sunday, March 16, 2014 at The Lord Baltimore, Baltimore, MD; I was selected to complete in the Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey fashion design contest .
Presented by Jack Daniels Honey, EMERGE is THE fashion event to attend this Spring! Hosted by WBAL TV-11's Ava Marie, a total of 11 Fashion Awards will be distributed to emerging fashion industry members, including the "Rising Star" award, which shines a light on our young talent. A wonderful collective of our area's talented emerging fashion members was in attendance along with fellow fashion members, media, special invited guests and more.
Coach K, the life coach and event speaker of #FAMD, said that some of the most beautiful, most talented, and smartest people the world may ever know are at the cemetery. Why? Because they let fears hold them back from showing their gifts to the world. Well darn it that won’t be me. I may not have been the prettiest on the red carpet, the richest in VIP, or the most talented on the stage. But I was there. I took a chance and I put my art (my baby) up for public speculation. I did it. I want to cry. I did cry. I am crying still, because I am proud of myself. And my New Year resolution may be late, but here it is: I won’t let FEAR of rejection hold me back. I refuse to take my gift to the grave having never shared it with the world. So get ready for more.
