Here is some great details on FashioNXT, held during Portland Oregon’s Fashion Week; something I had the great pleasure of participating in:
Here is a short video of my runway show from Portland Oregon’s FashioNXT. I’ve been invited back and I hope to be again, I had a conflict with timing and wasn’t able to take them up unfortunately. The inspiration of my line was Faery and a reinterpretation of modern themes such as pop culture via a Faery perspective. Each of these are like Faery women moving through the world and seen in ideas of the world captured through Faery eyes. I work primarily in recycled fabrics and recycled tees. Much of my designs are draped and redesigned to silhouettes of a dress form.
You can also check out my YouTube channel ‘And She Saw Stars’ for runway clips and even sizzle reels. I’m auditioning for acting roles and modeling. I’ve been in some short films and I’m looking for more work. If you have roles you are interested in sending my way, please email me at the email addresses above. You can see samples of my work by request and also by going through my websites: http://ladonnadavis.carbonmade.com and https://andshesawstars.com.

This video features music done by my brother: Calvin C. Davis III if you want to contact him, email me at email@example.com. His sounds are his own creations perhaps he’ll make something for you. He’s been called ‘Cal the Third’ in case you’ve seen his pieces on SoundCloud in the past.
Film Credits & TV Spots
I had a great time showcasing my chef-ery chops on the Allergy Actress Cooking Show. It was a chance to introduce my interest in cooking with color therapy in mind. I call it the ‘Color Wheel Cooking’ and I have a short video talking about it and then the video below which shows it in action. I was offered a BidChat Channel as a result, but it didn’t pan out. I’m looking for more opportunities to showcase my savory recipes in the future as I think my style of cooking and approach is cool, fun, tasty, and exciting.
I had the great Fortune of being in a CSUN student film of a selected scene from The Devil Wears Prada. I played a model (non speaking) and had great fun. See it below.
The Healer (TV Pilot) Costume Wardrobe Lead for series read-through (can send email of samples of what I did upon request). It was a tough gig. I was totally sick and traveled from Arizona back to California to do the job. I was thinking about relocating and I’ve been doing that lately (2019) trying out different spaces.
‘The Better Sister’. Role: Neighbor #4. (no lines; Black Girl with Afro) 2Ho Productions. Short Film. Release Date: 30 Mar 16
Director: Miranda Russo. Writer/Producer: Tanya Carnelisse & Miranda Russo.
I’m really proud of my work on the Better Sister. It’s had a premiere/viewing in Los Angeles area last year I believe. I’m hoping it’ll do more and go further to film festivals and such and get more and more press. It was a fun thing to be on. I worked the set as a Set Decorator Assistant and also got a small part as Neighbor #4. It was too cool. See the sizzle clip above. For more details on the film see Miranda Russo who directed the film. I got the gig through The Table. It’s a great group and many opportunities are there for artists.

Non-Film Press/Media Article Features:
I am a writer and I do freelance and a lot of blogging on my own site. I’m really getting into coverage of journalist features now and hope to get into getting a press pass and covering more of the Awards and Ceremonies when the seasons come around. If you’re interested in having me write for you please contact me directly. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and you can also try email@example.com. I have a few different emails that I use so these ones are good to get to me for when I’m traveling and also are long emails I’ve been using over years even since college.
I’m looking to do photography pieces and writing on women’s health, healing, metaphysics, new age and also discrimination. I have specialties in tarot, metaphysics, pop culture, veteran affairs/military, alternative healing modalities, fashion and engineering. I’ve helped in areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) over the years where I’ve done mentoring and worked various workshops with school kids (such as teaching robotics and aerodynamics). If you’re interested in having me teach or mentor, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Watch the video below, you can see me at moment 3:57 (I’m in the lower left with the long hair; that was me in the Air Force). I still am very much interested in supporting the education of women and the education of inner city youths especially in the fields of science, but now I’d love to add photography and arts to include fashion, commentary, and design. I worked with Ms. Roberta Gleiter when I was stationed at Los Angeles AFB. She was a hoot and too much fun. I learned quite a bit and was able to work and support the community through of some of her endeavors such Global Institute of Technology & Engineering (GIFTE). See the video below it captures one of the events I worked at where I taught introduction to aerodynamics and project management through the use of paper airplanes. This is a course I can teach in case you’re interested do contact me. There was an article on it in the local paper and I was too proud of the mention. So was my mom.
Freelance Writer & Photographer and Designer
I’ve done freelance writing for iMirage Magazine and I’m also on staff as a freelance writer for DisFunkshion Magazine where I love to watch all things hippie, boho, design, style, and commentary on the nature of style, nature of fashion and the nature of nature. Check it out.
Check out Hugette, she rocks and so does the mag. Buy it on the stands and learn. There’s only too much to see.
Here’s a link to the Vol 21 Issue in Print featuring Carmen Electra on the cover & my article ‘Bloggers to Know’.
Here’s a bit on a Behind-the-Scenes shoot for a fellow photographer that shot for iMirage Magazine.
When I do a shoot, I often do it on-location. Below is a little ‘street shoot’ I did on how I saw Faery. I’m very much inspired by nature, angels, the creator, and faery when I do shoots on the streets. I’m very urban and my perspective is very straight-forward: what can be seen through the eye of my lens.
Here’s what I saw for iMirage Magazine. A little something from my view. If you want me to cover something for you, please send me a line at email@example.com. I’d love to have you see my view.
…..’the Sprite’ appears in iMirage Magazine’s Electric Pop issue…..
there’s nothing wrong with buying back-issues so if you get a chance, look me up: https://www.magcloud.com/user/imirage
I’m so excited about Cushcity.com. It’s been great working with them so far. I’ve been doing a bit of PR work with them and it’s been TOTALLY worth it. I’m looking to do a video spot…working up on saving cash. I can’t wait! Their prices are reasonable and you learn a lot.
This is a TV spot I did after my runway show at FashioNXT in Portland Oregon. I was really well received. I’ve been asked to show again as of 2018. I was also asked to show again at Van Couver Fashion Week in 2018 and 2019. I’ve been busy with school but I’m hoping to return. I’d love to do Atlanta (they’ve asked me to show previously). And I’d love to do London, Australia (I’ve been asked to show there but has schedule conflicts), France (I’ve been asked to show there) and then Los Angeles (I almost showed there but ran into a conflict and was unable; hope to show in future of course), and eventually New York. I’d love to show anywhere, show if you’re interested, please contact me. If you have sponsors that are willing to sponsor my way, please let me know. If you have scholarships to help fund the fees of showing let me know. Showing in Fashion Weeks is great and sometimes expensive, those who understand and love my work and wouldn’t mind sponsoring the fee to have me show are greatly appreciated and being sought out. Contact me at (+1) 213-378-8616 and also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Articles About ‘And She Saw Stars’
This is a feature that came out of doing Vancouver Fashion Week earlier this year. I was in Vancouver Fashion Week F/W ’16)
Check them out. I really believe in their publication. It’s totally awesome. I’m so glad to be a part of their magazine via interview. I’m hoping to get on the freelance staff if possible. I’ve had the chance to see folks like DMC of Run DMC fame at the 2018 L.A. Comic Con (who had just launched a fantabulous artsy comic book/graphic novel!) and Chuck D. in Downtown Los Angeles doing a fashion show (2018) showcasing a group of artists, Sammy Sam, donning new gear designed by Beverly Hills Design Institute in California. You can see articles I’ve done on them here.
I had the opportunity to wear my own design to the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival’s Opening Night. I’d been wanting to have it photographed and my other two prior opportunities of having it worn to two different Red Carpet events didn’t result in any images, unfortunately. So this was such a great thing to have happen. Thanks Jewelchic for the coverage!
