Eleve Men’s Luxury clothing brand and The Bentley Didier Firm presented a day of service to the local less fortunate community with a fashion inspired clothing drive and give-back entitled “Fashion Meets Philanthropy” on December 17. Through all of the donations and volunteer efforts, Fashion Meets Philanthropy was able to step up and be a beacon of light, hope, and inspiration to not only the local residents but to other service groups as well, in hopes of partnering together to make give-back/donation efforts larger through collaboration in 2017. This year, FMP secured an official drop-off spot with industry stylist to the stars Melvin Sanders and his new swanky O2G Boutique.
Following community service, all volunteers, staff, fellow fashion influencers, and media came and enjoyed an evening of fashion and music at O2G Boutique, where they were collecting toys and supply donations for the Loyalty Foundation. Guests brought donations of any kind to benefit a local elementary school (arts, crafts, books, paper, printing materials, writing and coloring utensils, etc.). Confirmed talent included Ariane and Mimi Faust of VH1’s ‘LHHATL’, master stylist Mushiya Tshikuka of WE TV’s ‘Cutting it in the ATL’, R&B sensation Tyra B, and the sexy performer/recording artist and fitness goddess Lex, of recording group Bliss, and an electrifying and crowd moving performance by singer/songwriter/recording artist Vina Mills. Special thank you to the staff of Eleve Xii, Shop O2G, Broadcasting Beauty, and The Bentley Didier Firm for a successful event collaboration.
