A look at the new GMHC


This past Friday RBRW got a tour of Gay Men’s Health Crisis ( GMHC) new extended facility in New York. GMHC cooks over 90,000 meals a year for people with AIDS and HIV. We are truly inspired by this wonderful organization.

A look into Spring | Suzi Chin Spring 2011 Collection

10 Dec
Black Cocktail Dress Spring 2011

On Thursday night I  attended the Suzi Chin Spring 2011 showcase on behalf of RealBeautyRealWomen.com at the lovely Maggy Boutique on 7th ave. Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique provides style from women size 0-24. Suzi Chin collections usually features about 100 pieces so there is something for everyone. Suzi Chin works in 3 parts. #1 She designs for the present, #2 they fit for last season and #3 they start working on designs for next season. This work ethic is what keeps Suzi Chins designs fresh and trendy. Her designs are young yet sophisticated.


The evening went off without a hitch. There were some beautiful bridal items for the Spring 2011 collection that any bride would proud to wear. As well as brides maids outfits that won’t make you cringe.   There is so much attention to detail in each of the dress. Also each print/pattern is custom-made for Suzi Chin.

Great color option for the spring if you’re not a fan of bright colors

Bridal Selections

Suzi Chin also carries plus sizes or “women sizes” and they are not just the larger versions of the petite dresses. Which is great. Each garment is made to accentuate the body.

The plus size women should feel very confident wearing Suzi Chin who  has dressed Gabourey “Gabby” Sidibe and Mo’Nique.  Suzi Chin has been designing for 25 years, and from speaking with her you can tell she is still very much excited about her line. If you are into color there is something in the Spring 2011 for you. Even if you love your black there are at least 30 or so pieces that will satisfy your love of black.  The thing about Suzi Chin is she don’t just want to be the place you come to get your “special occasion dress” but where you can find an outfit for everyday of the week.  Suzi Chin is a lifestyle brand. This Spring 2011 is one that provides dresses that are comfortable, sexy and easy to wear. Who doesn’t like that?
