Good evening ladies and gentlemen and welcome to another edition of the MET Fashion Photo Show blog. On Tuesday May 21st, visitors at the Sky Room were treated to a spectacular show featuring the creative makeup skills of Tawni Michelle. In addition, the jewelry worn by each model was created by two young designers whose pieces are getting a lot of attention in the fashion world; Kawin Long and Jasmin Rhoden. Tawni, Kawin & Jasmin took time out of their busy schedules to sit down and discuss their creations, ideas and direction. It is my pleasure to introduce these three women to you as they share a piece of themselves this evening in a very unique and exciting fashion show.
