Ten local designers from the Metro Detroit Area were chosen to create their own individual samurai inspired looks. Weeks before the show, thousands of people voted for their favorite ensemble. And the winner was announced at the end of the show by The Detroit Garment Guild!

Before I reveal the winner here are a few of my favorite looks in the show. I loved this reptile looking blazer with the pumpkin colored trousers.

This dainty ballerina tip-toed down the runway with this feminine gown.

Nope! This one didn’t win but this gown is definitely winning in my book.

And the winner is… Janna Coumoundouros’s gown. She is a local jewelry maker and photographer, Lilacpop. I’ve seen her around butnever knew she was a designer too! By the way the crown gasped I knew that he dress was the winner.

A model and the designer. So much work was involved in these pieces.

Love the pumpkin colored pants as well, but her poor feet look pained… her ankle looks like it about to pop! These are total works of art though. Very cool.

You would say that Nicky. Lol.

I am my own worst critic. There’s many things that I loved that I stopped doing because I “wasn’t good enough”. Because what I looked like was “disgusting”. The things I wrote about would “disgrace” my family, my religion, myself. For five years, I didn’t do anything. And, resented the fact that I wasn’t living in my purpose. I was floating along life, mimicking what I thought people like me did. They didn’t model. They didn’t cuss. They made their husbands happy. They stayed out of the way. But, most of them were doormats. I chose to put it all out there. On the internets and become myself 😂🤣 There will always be critics. People who don’t read nothin you say or have no idea what you stand for but will look at your body and judge you based on that and that alone. The person in the next slide (swipe over) keeps referring to my body as “that” which means they don’t see my fat glory as human. He/she calls me disgusting. Calls me a disgrace. But, their profile pic says “Inspiration”. My body is my temple. I am a queen. I appreciate what my body does for me despite my size. Period! 👏🏾 And, a reminder for you if you are struggling with body hate—from yourself or others or society—your body is a grand temple. Adorn it. Hug it. Nourish it. In what ways do you overly criticized your self, your body? What advice would you give someone who is critical of their self? Let’s chat.
