For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Téka Marie, I am the show director for Curvy Chic Closet and founder of PDX Fashion Network. PDX Fashion Network is an event for industry professionals and industry wannabes to get together and network. The fashion show provides entertainment for the evening, while providing support to local designers and models.
Deciding to make this a charity event benefiting Susan G Komen seemed most fitting since the event takes place in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Breast Cancer has touched the lives of many people we all know and love. 100% of the monies raised from the ticket sales and silent auction will be donated. I Inspire to raise at least $10,000 for the foundation.
I am a plus-size woman specializing in runway, print and commercial modeling. My photos have been published in Black Fortress Magazine and twice on the cover of Hell on Heels Magazine. In my spare time, I enjoy all types of photography, spending time with my family and helping others in my community. I mentor other models in the community to help them gain confidence and experience needed to begin their journey. It makes my heart happy to inspire and help promote other people in the fashion industry. I am a strong believer in claiming your fashion freedom. I think differently and act individually and I look forward to seeing you at the show!
