Hello fellow fashion lovers! I hope you were able to make it out to Oakland Fashion Week’s Day Two, “Fashion Boulevard” last night! If you have not been able to view the wonderful runway shows hosted thus far, you can still catch many more amazing designers tonight, Friday night, as well as on Saturday night! Each remaining night will showcase a wide range of many designers that you absolutely will not want to miss!
Yesterday evening at Studio Fab, located at 2525 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland Fashion Week held its second day event, “Fashion Boulevard”. This runway show featured exquisite jewelry designs by Engracia Jewelry, as well as beautiful garments from MeMe & Robin Boutique, JR. Esmeralda Fashions, Rainbow Store, and Virgin Only Boutique.
First on the runway was mesmerizing jewelry designs by Engracia Jewelry. The company slogan, "Simply Elegant, Simply You" seems like an understatement! The intricate, bold, beaded designs made by Maria Rodriguez were both unique and radiating with beauty! These jewelry pieces are truly statement items that would look lovely paired with a wide variety of garments to create a one of a kind look. You can check out more designs by Engracia Jewelry by visiting their web-site at
Here are a few of my favorite looks from the evening:
MeMe & Robin Boutique were up next to strut their garments down the runway, and wow, were the pieces they presented smoking hot! I particularly loved the fact that MeMe & Robin set up a Pop Up Boutique at the runway viewing, giving patrons of the fashion show a unique opportunity to purchase the items they were seeing right then and there!

Here are a few of my favorite pieces:
Next up, Jr. Esmeralda Fashion! Fun textiles, skin tight dresses, and flowy jumpsuits were all presented in the next collection! Sara Anders, host of OFW summed it up nicely when she said, "Jr. Esmeralda offers something for everyone! Something for your sister, your auntie, your daughter, and you! Something for everyone!"
Here are two of my favorite looks from Jr. Esmeralda (left photo) along with boutique owner Sonia Campos (center). And some of my favorites from Rainbow Boutique (right photo), who was next on the line up showcasing their stylish merchandise!
Lastly, Virgin Only Boutique presented several beautiful garments. I particularly enjoyed the many lace dresses and jumpsuits, as well as the solid and multi color jumpsuits and dresses! These pieces are sizzling for summertime!
I hope you enjoyed my re-cap of Day Two of Oakland Fashion Week, "Fashion Boulevard"! Oakland Fashion Week is truly off to a great start, with three more nights of fashion filled fun ahead!
I myself am heading out to Studio Fab right now, to get my models prepared for tonight's event, where I will be showcasing my current designs! I look forward to seeing you this evening, at Oakland Fashion Week Day Three "Sol Afrik: Ready to Wear"! 7pm, 2525 Telegraph Avenue in Oakland! See you tonight!
