Attending the hair show made me proud to be “N” or Natural!

Upon seeing Quelly Rues’s “Naturally Me” Tee on Instagram, I thought it would be the perfect shirt to wear the hair show.

A few weeks after the hair show, I had a chance to meet Drew Xeron, a world renowned photographer, at his studio, Studio 52 on O St., in Washington, D.C.  I am one of the event producers for Africa Fashion NOW Exhibit (AFNE) and I went to check out the location with the KK, the event’s founder.

Many people have asked me, “Is that you on the shirt?”

The answer is no. This was not a custom order from Quelly Rue. I already had the earrings and I usually wear my hair in an up-do style. So, I decided to make myself look like the shirt.

Drew’s ring light had a deep opening so he wanted me to do a pose where I was climbing inside the camera.
