B Michael SS09 - U gotta love him!

B Michael launched his first couture collection in 1999 and, as with his approach to millinery, his designs exuded a glamorous clean aesthetic.

In 1999, B Michael became a member of the CFDA, and in February 2003, the designer partnered with Wayne Demar to form DM Fashion Group, a company dedicated to marketing and furthering the B Michael brand.

Always willing to take on new challenges, he is a guest lecturer at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology and serves on several charitable advisory boards, including New Yorkers For Children and Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.

He has shown his collection twice in Beijing, China. He has recently signed a handbag licensee to debut in Spring 2004. He also the Fashion Director for one of the country's sportswear collections,

This go round, I was booked by celebrity hair and make-up artist Yousef Williams to show his beind the scenes work making the girls look their best.

It was Awesome. Yousef and his team did an amazing job creating a "pretty mess" with the models hair. The styles reminded me of Amy Whinehouse ("minus the crack, right" -- The Hommie Rah).

My friend Berlin (AKA RON) was there. He's the one that hooked me up with the gig (GO RON!) --- Check him out doing his thing.

Overall, I had a great time and the models were gracious, classy, and beautiful. B Micheal is that Legend!
