There is nothing like hitting the runway for a cause. I had the pleasure of attending the First Annual “Royal Redemption Fashion Show” centered around domestic abuse awareness. The show was presented by Tay Loring, founder of EminentGoldLine XL. She challenged a group of up and coming Dallas stylists to "get in formation" for a very touchy issue with a fashionable approach. The list of Dallas stylists represented on the runway included Stamped721 by Shan Choice, Studio 1706 by D. Chanel, Acyndi by Indyca J., Shaded by D. Hooper, and Mad Luv by Carlos Randle.
Each designer pushed through with kid and adult models with a confidence like no other. It's safe to say that each urban, custom piece was represented well. Tay Loring also made sure to get the message across by furthering the movement of women empowerment through art. There was a great performance of a monologue and dance by Galxc Dance Company featuring the song "Day After Day" by Lori Perry. The building also jammed together to the lovely sounds of singer Gabrielle Hill and her band. She had the crowd moved and pumping their fists to lady anthems such as "Without Me" by Fantasia and "Let it Burn" by Jasmine Sullivan.
This event was one to put in the books as one of the most creative and innovative ways to bring awareness to one of the many struggles women and their loved ones face today. Let's all motivate each other and help bring awareness to domestic violence. Thank you, Tay Loring, for SLAYing with Slay Magazine! We cannot wait to SLAY with you again for your next event.
