DIY TURBAN NIGHT OUT

Posted: 05.08.2014
Upon receiving the invitation event, I did not hesitate to RSVP-- because who doesn't want a make a turban for a good cause!?!?  Bloggers, cancer survivors, and supporters in New York showed up last night for a great cause-- to fight cancer with fashion! The DIY Turban Night to Fight Cancer was hosted by IFB and FASHION FIGHTS CANCER. The event was held at Chelsea Piers Studio 59. Not only were we whisked into a Turban wonderland, we were also provided with complimentary sparkling wine by Michelle-- which was delightful!

Last night,  Studio 59 was turned into a turban workshop for bloggers. There were: ribbons, tulle, thread, sewing machines, beads, buttons, and scissors galore. The only thing we all agreed on that was missing were glue guns-- these would've made our lives that much more simple. I say this because it took me two hours to create a unique turban that said young, fun, and fresh!

My turban was an aqua coloured kwool-knit with a pink lace overlay. During this event I struggled to create a masterpiece that would be donated alongside: Brittany of Piece love and Sole, Tammy of A Fendi Bag and a Bad Attitude, Key of Six Inch Fetish, Kinna of Closet Jane, Jamila of Nami's Fashion Light, and Akinyi of Fits On Me. Everyone's turban cam out exceptionally beautiful! You can see some of the creations
featured.


After two pain staking hours of continuous re-working of my turban, I finally succeeded!!! I hope that someone out there loves the Turban I made for their beautiful head, because I certainly put love into it!
