I was so honored to receive a personal invite from Ardre Orie for her “Meet the Director” event created to promote Atlanta’s female empowerment. Saturday was a busy work day for me with the Trumpets Awards and private birthday party but as you can see from the pics… the ladies had a wonderful fellowship at Urbane Elements Boutique.
Author, Film Director, and Self-Worth Advocate – Ardre Orie lead an intimate conversation with attendees about self-esteem, the influence media has on defining beauty and how to effectively celebrate one another. The conversation focused on subject matter surrounding Orie’s recently released documentary, “I AM: Consciously Beautiful”. Attendees included V. Taybron, Alicia Fitch, Queen Aftan Williams, Koereyelle DuBose, Lakia Brandenburg, Lillie Mae, Lady C. Causieestko, Ashley Starling, and Diamond Alexus.
Meet The Director was the first series of forthcoming event activations leading to the inaugural one day event, The Beautiful Mile. The Beautiful Mile is the first ever one mile beauty walk and empowerment experience that promises to raise awareness regarding the harmful effects of societal imposed beauty standards.
