A midsummer fashion extravaganza is coming to Bridgeport, Connecticut, that has the industry all abuzz, as the first annual Black Rock Beauty For All show kicks off on July 19.  The event, presented by featured designers Karlene Lindsay of Karlene Lindsay Designs and Charlene Grace of Stallion Style Diva Designs, is meant to tear down stereotypical perceptions of fashion appeal, with an exciting new array of unforgettable creations, forward looking “outside the box” looks that bring a special appeal to today’s discerning fashion consumer.

Karlene Lindsay began sewing at age 9, when she produced a handmade pleated skirt, and this ignited her love for all things fashionable.  Growing up, Karlene entered Gibbs College, and worked at a special-occasion shop called Blue Tulip.  Bags were a major item in the store, and this inspired Karlene to branch out and create her own bag designs.  Since then, she’s evolved from selling her works to family and friends, to making her creations available to the public via her website.  Much popular acclaim has followed Karlene, and she wowed the crowd at the recent Immaculate Fashion Show. In addition, Karlene’s designs have made their mark at fashion shows across the US, including Fashion weeks in Jersey City, the Great Lakes, Connecticut, C’Est Magnifique Boston, and New York Fashion Week.  Her work has also been covered by media outlets such as Fox 8 News and

Fashion entrepreneur, Unique Blend plus-size model, and designer Charlene Grace is rolling out her new line of exquisite outfits made especially for women with curves at Beauty For All.  Her designs cater to the full-figured woman who wants to “look fabulous at an affordable price”.  Charlene, who owns the Mother2Model online boutique, says the Stallion Style Diva collection will feature both everyday apparel and custom-made pieces, in partnership with Karlene Lindsay, who furnishes shoes, and other accessories to complement each item.  Charlene’s talent has been showcased at Connecticut Fashion Week, Jersey City Super Bowl Fashion Weekend, Great Lakes Ohio Fashion Week, and New Day & Assoc Model of the Year Competition 2014, among numerous other industry events.  Follow Charlene on social media, Instagram- @stallionstylediva FB: Stallion Style Diva and shop online at:
