Atlanta was on FIRE this weekend as it hosted Sheen Magazine’s Legendary Weekend! This event was hot, and any and everybody attended. The weekend was jam packed with events starting Friday night, lasting through Sunday afternoon! This event comprised of Fashion Icons, Style galore, and plenty of amazing people that all gathered to honor those that are making great strides in their respected industry. The event kicked off with a Bloggers brunch, then a fashion show, gala, panels and more! Among us were celebrity guest such as, Claire Sulmers, Marlo Hampton, Trina Braxton, Reece Odum, Vivica Fox, and more! The weekend was full of life, laughs, and great fashion of course. In case you didn’t know, Sheen Magazine is the ultimate guide for Modern Day Women and certainly a publication to check out!
Claire Sulmers, spoke about her rise in the fashion industry and taking advantage of the digital platforms that have given way to this new batch of african-american social innovators.
The third annual gala hosted its first Kimmie Awards as a celebratory reception for the founder and publisher, Kimberly Chapman, in which creatives and business professionals were honored. I had the pleasure of catching up and conversing with Kim and she is an absolute delight! After hearing and knowing that Sheen Magazine has been a major influence in the publication world, I had one question for Kim. When asked, “What would you say to those that desire to pursue entrepreneurship and maintain their success?” She commented, “Stay Focused, have a clear direction, and remove distractions.” This spoke volumes to me and really summed up entrepreneurship!
The Public Relation agency IGN did a fantastic job facilitating this event and are definitely in the business of pleasing their clients. This event was full of class, amazing vendors, and influential people. It certainly will go down as a night to remember!
