The Bornatty Experience!!

The Bornatty Experience!!

With vivid colors and extreme style, and multicultural influences Bornatty’s fashion line is a true one of a kind. I was pleasantly surprised to get the invitation to the Charity Event to benefit the homeless.  What a fabulous show… I sat near an American and an African attendee, just where I seem to always fine myself. The Oooo and Ahhh were the same, everyone saw something to love. The Swag level had me wanting to grab a Lion Jacket for my own husband. It’s not every woman that can dress international men as well as women.
BORNATTY, wise designer Martone Evans is a soft spoken Caribbean woman based here in the Triangle area. She has infused her Island heritage in this amazing collection presented in this show. I was   impressed by not only the fashion but the other elements of the show. The musicians, Poets, and Models were a series of the who’s who of Raleigh.People like Bubsy Millions performed, the most popular Models like Brandi Crenshaw, Purusha Jones…
This year has been all about teaming up. I quickly learned that it takes team-power to create memorable events and I believe in the power of giving back. Putting these 2 concepts together led me to include Raleigh's Own Helping Hand Mission in the Bridge the GAP event.  I incorporated a toy drive into the event to collect Christmas toys for the Mission. I know that I will be putting these toys in the right hands. There is a special energy that comes from planning events that involves giving back on a grand scale. Planning and Coordinating with a such a busy person as Ms Wiggins, had it challenges, but it was well worth the effort. I almost became a permanent figure around the Rock Quarry Road Location. Any Event has many moving parts from Food to music to venue restrictions and so on. This one was no different; Mixing the African, Caribbean, and American Cultures Cuisine and Music is a bit complicated. Somehow we manage to pull it off and with a Christmas theme. Ms Silvia Wiggins…
