Throughout my travels in an unbiased quest to bring to my audience fashion and the unique designers behind them, my recent travels took me into the city of Chicago, affectionately known as the ‘Heart of America’. My destination in the Windy City? Midwest Fashion Week of course, which was founded and guided by Mr. Berny Martin.
As a fan of Mr. Martin’s work, I have followed Midwest Fashion Week over the years as they have acquired numerous mentions in notable magazines such as IndyStar.com (USA Today), ELLE Men, and Ok! Magazine. Midwest Fashion Week not only brings forth talent and visions via the runway, but also raises money for charities and non-profit organizations.
Mr. Martin is no ordinary Haitian-born gentleman with just ‘good taste’, but an international fashion revolutionary in his own right. Notably a graduate of Purdue University, Berny Martin is also the Founder and CEO of Catou Wear, which serves on leaps and bounds beyond simply ‘made’ fashion designs.
Martin’s Catou Wear brings on a personalization of tailoring, sophistication, elegance and flare. His love and passion for customizing designs to compliment the client’s personality proves true, even in his own personal attire. A gentleman indeed and a lover of the craft, Berny Martin has been bringing stunning artistry to the runway all over the world. I personally came into contact with Catou Wear via Couture Fashion Week in 2015, Times Square, New York.
As I bring to you the designers of MidWest Fashion Week, please know that hard work, dedication and love of the art assisted Mr. Berny Martin and his team in making this magic come to life.
Ladies and gents, may I present to you….Bliss. Also known for its Bliss spas strategically placed all over the country, this company was founded by Marcia Kilgore in 1991 in New York, New York and headquartered in the same. Her first spa was established in 1996. Evidently, Marcia had it going on because Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton swooped in and bought the majority of the company for $30 million in 1999 (gurl……that’s $45,123,367.91 in 2018….just saying gurl).
When they completed the purchase, they opened a spa at 12 W. 57th Street in New York. The buyers of Bliss really know a up and coming luxury when they see it! Now if you travel like I do, you know some of the many places in which you can find Bliss because its in a lot of your favorite places like A loft hotels, JetBlue Airways, TJ Maxx (if you lucky). Celebrities like Madonna, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez, and Uma Thurman are known to use Bliss and frequent the spa.
I was introduced to Bliss products about 10 years ago on a vacation trip in the Caribbean. By far, the spa session that I received with a series of these products were a game-changer for me. While I have dealt with acne when I was younger plus sensitive skin, I’ve always looked for products that were reasonably priced while still giving my skin the treatment it deserves. Bliss has been one of those products in which I am sure that no matter how much I use the product, I’m not irritating my skin. If you have never been to a Bliss spa, check out this link right….here to see if there is a spa near you. If there isn’t one in your local area, don’t worry gurl! You can probably find Bliss products in your local TJ Maxx store.
