Celebrity fashion stylist Tameka Raymond visits Houston May 9th during her multicity tour
HOUSTON – APRIL 27, 2015—Calling all fashion and beauty mavens, or those ready for an image overhaul, celebrity stylist Tameka Raymond is coming to Houston May 9th as part of her 14-city STYLE THEORY tour. Raymond has enjoyed a successful career in the fashion industry for more than two decades, and is now spreading her knowledge during this national tour.
Raymond was a cast member of VH1’s “Celebrity Exes,” but started her journey to stardom as a student at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. She was hired by the renowned designer Giorgio Armani, and her work has since graced the covers of leading publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, GQ, and Rolling Stone. Her client roster boasts industry heavyweights like Aretha Franklin, Jay-Z, Toni Braxton, and ex-husband Usher. Raymond married the Grammy-Award winning singer in 2002. Their union ended in a custody battle, around which time Raymond’s 11-year-old son Kile was killed in a tragic boating incident. She started the Kile’s World Foundation in honor of his memory.
Raymond has endured many struggles but feels that inner beauty is what it takes to emerge victorious.
“Style begins with how you feel about yourself,” Raymond said. “It starts from within, so fitness and great mental health all play a part in it. You could be stylish and have expensive clothes and a great hairstyle, but if your attitude isn’t right, it won’t work.”
Raymond is lending her sage advice during the tour and also in her newly published book entitled “White Bras and 101 Style Faux Pas,” a hilarious take on fashion do’s and don’ts. The book is currently only being offered to event attendees. STYLE THEORY is designed as an interactive workshop to teach the ins and outs of styling from inner (mental) beauty to hair, make up, and dressing for every occasion. It begins with a motivational speaker and incorporates mini sessions from some of the leading style and beauty experts from across the nation. The workshop runs from 9:30 am–4:30 pm, and includes a catered lunch, premium gift bags and a live DJ. Attendees will learn how to make positive, lasting impressions and polish their personal brands.
The Houston workshop speakers are CleRenda McGrady, media personality and wife of NBA legend, Tracy McGrady; celebrity makeup artist Brandi Holmes, whose clients have included Nicole Murphy, Kelly Rowland, and Sheryl Swoopes; Kim Roxie, creator of the global beauty brand LAMIK, and more. Raymond has partnered with several local brands to help bring this event to Houston: luxury realtor Kye Sampson; Terra Johnson-Jones, owner of inspirational fitness company Celebration of Women; and Jill Parker, Executive Director at international wellness company Melaleuca.
In honor of Mother’s Day, Raymond is extending a special discount code “MD30” to Houston workshop attendees who register online. For more information visit StyleTheoryHouston.eventbrite.com and follow Tameka Raymond on Instagram and Twitter.
