The FABulous Awards 2017

The FAB Awards 2017

Kathy Blaze and Terrance Hudson
The Fashion.Art.Beauty multi-faceted fashion show was spectacular this year! The runway was filled with ridiculously creative hairstyles, body painting and some of the most amazing couture to be seen in the desert.

FAB Weekend founders Terrance Hudson and Kathy Blaze Jefferson pulled out all the stops in the ballroom at the Embassy Suites Resort in lush Scottsdale Az. The red carpet was buzzing with partygoers and all who wanted to get that selfie




on the runway. Vendors lined up to show off their wares from the likes of Prince Hunter BowTies, Fibi&Clo, Damsel in Defense and a wee bit more. 

FAB did things slightly different this year with the event.

Instead of the extravagant hair wars and models wars they decided to present

awards to those who are deemed worthy by their peers. Once the nominations were set the voting went wild. I know a few who voted every day sometimes twice. There was so much amazing

talent nominated I was in a quandary on choosing the best of the best.

And yes of course, I voted for all my compadres. I just love seeing this level of talent coming from right here in Arizona.

And I can't forget a shout out to the best host who's always on point Mr. Dizzie Ramsey. This guy right here ALWAYS keeps the crowd pumped.

There were so many designers on hand it made your head spin.


Model of the Year - Aubri Cooley

Local designers like Antoaneta Balabanova of Galina Couture and Mr. Luis Solis of Lavish Designs made an impact on the crowd leaving them breathless and wanting so much more.

Gracing the runway with her intoxicating sound is Jennie J herself. This young lady truly represents the talent here in Arizona.

And then there was Vela Davis - winner of the Natural Hairstylist of the Year Award

The runway was on fire! I loved seeing all that natural hair in its raw beauty. Such an ingenious use of creativity and skill. You killed it Vela!
