Deanna Santiago designs a showstopping wearable art gown for prominent Houston business executive and CEO.
Houston, TX based philanthropist and CEO of Westco Ventures and NCA Investigations, Nicole West attends the star-studded Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles. The star-studded event was held Saturday, April 29, 2017 at the California African American Museum in celebration of the new non-profit foundation WACO (Where Art Can Occur), which is the brainchild of Actor/Master Acting Coach, Richard Lawson and his wife, Fashion Designer Tina Knowles-Lawson.
"I had to come out and support our Houstonian sister Tina Knowles-Lawson! This was an electrifying event! Education and opportunity is so important to the future our country and us as individuals, especially our young people. What the Lawsons are offering with WACO is a huge step in the right direction. I believe we all can be change agents and play an important part in the advancement of humanity. I am looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting Westco Ventures involved," says West.
Guests showed up wearing clothing signifying many moods and expressions of art. Mrs. West proudly sported an off the shoulder red and white dress made of paper with images of Michelle Obama during some of her most memorable occasions as First Lady of the United States of America. The dress was designed by Fashionista, Deanna Santiago (of Houston) and gained a lot of attention and favorable reviews.
"I am an optimist, so I wanted to wear something that would symbolize power and possibility and what better example is there than Michelle Obama?" explains West.
