2016-02-16 BADA event-32016-02-16 BADA event-17Vedazzling Accessories teamed up again with BADA (Black Alliance Accessory Designer Alliance) which was created by Wilbur Pack, Jr.    An inclusive organization of non-caucasian accessory designers and the mission is to provide a platform and encourage independent, minority accessory designers to show their wares and build their businesses.  We know how difficult it is to get the financial support and make the necessary contacts in order to grow.  To that end, we held a Pop Up event during New York Fashion Week on February 16.

Invited guests included Dominican TV personality/actor/director Mario Peguero. Public Relations guru and part-time model Dally Perez modeled a look from the knitwear line Batista Collection.
 

Style influencers and fashion aficionados were treated to a wine tasting provided by Brooklyn’s black-owned Bed-Vyne Wine.  The shop, located at 370 Tompkins Avenue, specializes in finding the right wine for the individual with an inventory that not only reflects the diversity of the neighborhood, but also has low, medium and high price points in each category.

Interior Designer Ursallie Smith, owner of Rococo Design Interiors, revealed her sophisticated, yet bold use of color, pattern, and texture with her breathtaking display of decorative pillows and French Louis XV chairs.

Ronnetta J. Coleman, owner/designer of Ronnetta J. Coleman Jewelry & Accessories, proved that there is nothing better than the gold standard with opulent molded wire bracelets and necklaces.

Wilbur Pack, Jr., the designer behind the handcrafted bag line SK WiLBUR, created a collection he calls “Collage”. A mashup of leather, fur, denim, and metal, these bags are functional works of art.

The evening’s cupcakes were from upcoming pastry chef Charnelle McMillan of Designs-n-Delights.
