Your phone rings, and it’s a very skilled fashion designer on the line requesting your presence at an upscale preview show. What do you do? If you love true fashion, art, great people, then you go! Derron ‘Beeombi’ Cherry graced us here at The Wire Hanger By Winnie with an invitation to preview his 40 – look collection Sept First.
We are great supporters here of Beeombi, but not of only his fashion, but his work ethic and grind. After speaking to Beeombi early 2014, he was actually a great inspiration to me regarding following my dreams. As I have been the Editor In Chief of this site for almost four years, I wasn’t always fulfilling my purpose. That’s when I met Beeombi. I interviewed him about his accomplishments, working on costume gowns for the motion picture Selma, but I got more inspiration than I expected.
I have watched this man work his dream, take several risks and come out on top. He has more legendary people on his usie list than I may know, but he currently his serving amazing garments via House Ov Beeombi and via Tyler Perry Studios as Head Tailor.
To say the least, he is a ball of inspiration and I give him credit to me actually fulfilling my purpose entirely today.
Thankfully I had a chance to experience a private preview of Sept First last week at Duane Reed Gallery in St.Louis.
This collection has a very sentimental value to Beeombi as it is inspired by his mother who passed away last year.
As you experience Sept First, be prepared to experience the heroism of his mother through his cape designs.
Experience her minimalistic style through the Diane von Furstenberg influenced wrap dress, who in fact created the first wrap dress.
As you experience Sept First, savor her classy style through the Armani silk fabric but also experience how she ‘always kept it funky’ with a zipper, gun metal sequin or a red lip.
This will be an experience for St. Louis like never before. I was just able to attend the private preview. Experience the entire Sept. First. Collection as part of an expanded Saint Louis Fashion Week season on Sept. 1 at 7pm at Public Media Commons for yourself! Click here to claim your tickets now!
