The Fashion-Beauty Collective Bring It On During Fashion Week Finale

Watch Video: Sofia Davis, Vera Moore, & Thomas Lavone Team Up for Fashion Week Fall 2012



Sofia Davis, Editor, Fashion Avenue News Magazine, produced a fashion show featuring Thomas Lavone's Designs during New York Fashion Week Fall 2012.

"He's a fantastic designer. He's very strong with very nice and couture light gowns, long flowing pieces," said Ms. Davis. "He does great evening wear and he surprises people because he does men's wear too."

Ms. Davis has a degree in fashion design from the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) and has worked at the Apollo Theatre for nine years as director of models.
There is no doubt that fashion is in her blood.

"If I could not do fashion, I could not live because it's that serious with me," Ms. Davis stated emphatically.

Ms. Davis covers all of the Fashion Weeks: New York, Paris, Milano, London, etc.

Unlike some fashion publications, Fashion Avenue News Magazine puts emerging and established designers together in its publication. Designers could be working in their kitchen. There is no need to have a store and designers don't have to be famous to grace the pages of Fashion Avenue News Magazine.

Fashion Avenue News Magazine has many supporters, namely Vera Moore, President and CEO, Vera Moore Cosmetics, a 35 year-old family-owned cosmetics company with national distribution through Walgreen's.

Ms. Vera, a sponsor of Fashion Avenue News Magazine's runway fashion show, was on hand doing what she does better than anyone, being supportive of other entrepreneurs' efforts.

Thomas Lavone's runway show took us on a journey of his designs from evening gowns to cocktail dresses to suits and new things inspired by Olivia from Jerseylicious.

Mr. Lavone thanked Vera Moore for giving him an opportunity to do dress the models for a campaign ad she conducted.

"She is giving, she's caring, she is always trying to help young designers and people go up the ladder as she is climbing, and continues to climb" he stated.

"This is the type of leader we need to have in our community because she is always looking out for people who are coming up," Thomas Lavone added.
