Fashion extraordinaire, designer Essence Flowers, is making a name for herself in the state she calls home. At an early age, Essence was exposed to the art of designing and sewing by her grandmother in Haines City, Florida. Realizing fashion was her passion and calling, Essence further honed her craft at the International Academy of Design and Technology in Tampa. Today, Essence is a recognized designer, consultant, buyer and business professional.
Her label, Remarquable Designs by Essence, is becoming a hot commodity in Atlanta and the Bay area. Essence has had the opportunity to be a pre-fashion week participant in New York and will showcase her newest collection for the second year in a row at Fashion Week Tampa Bay 2009.
Remarquable Designs by Essence mixes couture and ready-to-wear with high-fashion, elegance and sex appeal. Each piece in her swim wear, formal, wedding and accessories collection is like a vivid work of art and makes a statement. Her designs truly are remarkable and, as her website says, “Anything else is just ordinary.” I’m looking forward to seeing Essence at Fashion Week Tampa Bay 2009 in September!
