With Brava’s upcoming in-home Fashion Shows, comes that feeling of excitement! I am thankful that Brava! is still in its start-up phases, because that means I can still participate in the fun of fitting our models, and accessorizing their outfits with our Fashion Director, Carol Campbell. This means we get to personally introduce Brava! to new clients, and to watch them discover this wonderful Bamboo fabric and the beautiful designs we offer, exclusively from Brava!
It begins with choosing our models. Our Affiliates, who actually hostess the in-home parties, suggest a few of their friends who might like to do an informal fashion show. This is always interesting, because a lot of women are unused to having a lot of attention. Most of them have never even thought about modeling, even though they are attractive, accomplished and creative. They are used to thinking of models in the traditional sense of the impossibly thin, air-brushed mannequins in the magazines.
It’s the reaction of, “Who me? Model?” They always have their reasons; too fat, too thin, not tall enough, too old, too shy, etc.
“Nonsense!” I tell them. “You’re perfect, exactly the type we’re looking for!” I mean this, sincerely. What type are we looking for? Real women. Real women with their imperfect beauty. (I can make you shine!) Let me tell you, the women I know are incredible people! Dynamic, hard-working, talented, multi-faceted, intelligent, sensitive, strong., and beautiful. They are singers, actresses and musicians. wives, mothers, doctors, nurses, lawyers, artists, designers, and business professionals.
And once our new models get to try on their first outfits, I see it happen, over and over again – the Twirl Factor! Brava’s fashions are so feminine, so comfortable, so flattering, so fun to try on, it’s not unusual to see a model’s face light up as they twirl around and around in front of our Oval Mirror! They feel good; they look great! And since Brava! fits sizes XS-3X, and takes special custom orders, we fit everyone, every body type.
So, what does it take to become a Brava! model, and to see your own reflection in our Oval Mirror? Sign up to become an Affiliate, or to be a guest at a local Brava! in-home Fashion Show. Be yourself! Be brave! Be Brava!
