Baltimore Fashion Week entering into third year

Aug '10
Entering into its third year is the annual fashion event Baltimore Fashion Week. This event is produced by Butterfly Productions, LLC, the event planning firm and home of Baltimore Fashion Week. Baltimore Fashion Week runs August 19 -22, 2010. This year's event will be held at the Sheraton Baltimore North in the S Fitzgerald Ballroom.

As the production phases continue to pile up, Founder/Chief Executive Producer Sharan Nixon, finally realized that she would have to let go and learn to delegate responsibility, but that has always been such a hard task for her since she started. During the “The Installation” the press party of Baltimore Fashion Week, she finally met her match. At the press party Nixon, met Darius L. Thompson and encouraged him to give her a call on Monday morning. He did and I guess as they say the rest is history.

“While at the press party I noticed his glasses, hair, and his boots. Those boots were all of it. We talked for a few minutes and I loved the way he spoke and from his style I could tell he would be a great asset to the team, and I was not wrong, stated Nixon.”

Darius Thompson attended the press party in the position of intern, but little did he know that on Monday, he would be just a little bit more than that. Thompson is now the Fashion Week Liaison for Butterfly Productions. Thompson is learning the trade to be a clone of Nixon.

As a normal practice Nixon usually gives everyone on the team a nick name, and the nick name she chose for Darius was Nigel. If you remember the movie “The Devil Wears Prada” Miranda Priestly had a Nigel, and Thompson is just that to Nixon, if not more.

Nixon stated, “Producing an event of this magnitude you need help. Entering into our 3rd year, I have realized that I cannot keep doing the parts of my job all by myself. Something has got to give, but in order for it to be given you need a strong person, a clone of myself and that is exactly what Darius is. We think alike and I feel confident that he has this event and this business in his best interests. That is something that is so hard to come by these days. In other words I trust Darius.”

Baltimore Fashion Week will begin in approximately 12 days on Thursday, August 19, 2010 and end on Sunday, August 22, 2010.
