On Sunday, December 15th, I attended the Walk the Talk 2013 Fashion event hosted by Founder Tweety Elitou. I’ve heard the stories of such amazing fashionistas coming together to network and share fashion secret, but hunty…I was in for a surprise.
First off, let me say Tweety Elitou is an amazing young entrepreneur and is definitely a fashionista. I was very impressed by her sense of professionalism and knowledge about the fashion industry, and she definitely deserve the award for “Fashionpreneur of The Year” for pulling off such an incredible networking event full successful and motivated attendees.
As I walked through the doors of Showroom 77, a notable independent designer showroom in South Philadelphia, I was greeted by her mommager Heather Elitou. As she grabbed my coat to store in the coat room, she says, “What’s your size?” My eye stretched wide as she handed me a black and white box along with a bag of goodies. I mean I been to several networking events, but none has ever given me a pair of shoes. I just knew my night was great at that point.
I mingled for a little and chat with some familiar faces and got a chance to meet some new faces as well. It’s always great when people can share goals and network with other who can help them along the way. On top of the mingling, the food was amazing! Shot out to the Young Cookanista who cooked up a delight array of finger foods and pasta, I just couldn’t stay away from pasta salad and plantains. The event was very entertaining with journalist/blogger Syreeta Martin, of SincerelySyreeta.com cohosting alongside Tweety. With the help of 3 little divas (Syreeta’s two daughter and Tweety sister), the night was filled with raffles tickets and prizes from Jackie’s Curls and Coil, L.A Shoe Republic, Sasha Marina Show, top shelf and many more.
You can bet if you ever attended a Walk the Talk you are sure to leave with great contacts, future goals and fabulous shoes and giveaways. Check out some photos of the event courtesy of Dawane Cromwell of Embacy Entertainment.
