Upon arrival to New Orleans, the staff and Designer Candence Caprice enjoyed fresh Beignets and a special treat from The Naked Saxophonist (who musical talent was truly lovely).
Designer Candence Caprice created a collection for the fashion show, as well as a collection for the pool parties that the CandEGirls attended. While showcasing her Essence Fest Collection, Caprice was wearing a luxurious couture suit jacket that she also created. Wearing this jacket earned her a reputation and a new nickname "Blue Jacket" given by Trina Braxton.
After the fashion show, The CandEGirls partied the remaining days away! From being on the guest list for multiple pool parties to meeting Ryan Henry of 9Mag/Black Ink Crew and other celebrities while being in the Big Easy!
