Wednesday, October 16

It's always a pleasure to work with FDE FL. It's a blessing and honor to support and raise awareness through FDE for Breast Cancer which means a lot to me. I showcased Adoro Swim on Friday night which was a huge success and I was one of the sponsors as well which was a great experience! My parents and I were so proud to provide FDE FL with our new hair care products Danny Xtreme which everyone loved! I was very happy to hear all the great feedback from the Adoro Swim show and of course the product line. It's always a great feeling to give back, help others and I'm glad I had the opportunity to do it. I also want to thank my parents and aunt for being there the day of my show and helping me. You guys are the best and I couldn't have done it without your help. I also want to thank my entire family, friends, fde staff for all your help and everyone that came out to support me on both days.

This season of FDE FL I will never forget and will be a highlight of my career. On Day 2 I received the "Top 5 Under 40 Icons in the Fashion Industry" award. It felt great to be acknowledged for all my hard work throughout all these years. I was honored with this recognition along with designer Lila Nikole (I love this lady so much. She was one of the first to give me a chance when no one else didn't. I admire and respect her for everything she's done. She is an inspiration!), my good friend/model and current contestant on ANTM Cycle 20 Renee Bhagwandeen, actress Trishauna Clarke and actor Lloyd Dickenson. I would like to thank Indian designer Sha Ali for my gorgeous hand made white dress I wore to the ceremony.

Here are a few awesome images from Day 1 and Day 2 by photographers Tim Byrne, Sean Simpson and Johnny Villaronga. Am looking forward to the next FDE FL season in February!
