Attending The ACHI Magazine Launch

I had the honor of attending the ACHI Magazine launch last Thursday night.  It was a delightful occasion held at the Mansion in Portsmouth, Virginia.  Many of the areas most sought after fashion forward businesses, designers and local patrons were in attendance as well as some fashionable celebrities and media friends!

The ACHI Magazine shares visions of high fashion apparel, accessories, handbags and more from designers and shops a far, which delightfully grace their every page.  A creation of Dr. Juanita Fletcher and daughter Taneisha Fletcher, there are great signs of a promising Fashion Forward publication!

The fabulous and talented fashion stylist to the stars... Ron Cooke of Rogue Productions threw an amazing fashion show in the room full of white clad folk and celebrities.

Another  Hautie we saw at the Magazine Launch was Ann Leister of Splash Model Management and Virginia Fashion Week.

I was very fortunate to have the honor of being a VIP there and had a fantastic time dressed up in the Haute Swan featured Elena Kattan white lace dress with my hair done up in a chignon.  Also in attendance with me were my husband Clinton Stevens and my daughters Amber Mobley and Cara Mia Mullay.

Haute Swan has an superbly fitted ivory lace Elena Kattan dress featured on a lovely Jamesetta Walker from the Virginia Pilot featured on the front page of ACHI Magazine and sprinkled though the pages of their first issue which we were pleased to see.  Featured were dresses from Elena Kattan at  Elena Kattan is a fantastic designer who has a very amazing eye for chic style, beautiful fabrics, wear-ability and excellent fitting cuts.  They use only the best fabrics imported from all over the globe and Elena Kattan was trained in none other than Paris, France under the watchful eye of another designer.  Elena Kattan designs with a European flair and creates amazing clothing with stretch fabrics.

Believe it or not I fit into a Large Elena Kattan Dress with my 3X body and I looked fabulous for the full figured girl that I am which is an attestment to the design skills of Elena Kattan.  Elena Kattan founded Didi Designs where she designs and manufactures her gorgeous line!

Also featured in the magazine was another Elena Kattan Dress similar to the ivory dress but in black featured on former Miss United States, Ashley Smith who now works as WVEC Traffic Reporter, ABC13.  You can find her reporting weekday mornings from 4:30 AM to 7:00 AM on the "Now at Deaybreak" show.

Haute Swan was one of the boutiques featured in the ACHI Fashion show and we were fortunate enough to see the gorgeous runway models such as Cookie Daubney long time fashion runway model.

Also featured in ACHI Magazine is a original design by Thomas Ruffin of North Carolina who had his collection featured at Haute Swan over the holiday season of 2013.

Kim Wadsworth, Makeup Artist, Fashion Stylist, Fashion and Lifestyle Writer and Magazine Editor from New York wore it spectacularly with a spicy pair of silver heels.  Thomas Ruffin is an amazing New and Emerging designer whose designs are quite elaborate and promising.

Ceo and Editor of ACHI Magazine!

I will note that the ACHI Magazine must have super talented photographers as the pages are graced with gorgeous pictures of fashion designs from many designers.

It was great to meet and greet lots of great people from all walks of fashion life!
