If you have not already heard the news, May is mental health awareness month! It’s a big deal to us here at Lav Chieré because we want to spread awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness. Here to help us fulfill this mission are four incredible brands who have partnered with “Women’s Unplugged Entertainment” by Quiana Bradford to create the ultimate mental health fashion event. Bradford’s “My Mental Health Fashion Show” that recently took place this past Sunday May 15, 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia featured vendors, live performances, and most importantly, four creative designers: Big Baby Slim, Her Love, Weirdos Only, and B.L.O.W. By Shari to showcase their fashion. Continue reading to learn more about the designers' purpose and style.
I had an amazing time blogging this experience on behalf of the #ThinkPositive blog here at Lav Chieré and I am so thankful for the opportunity of modeling on behalf of the brand “Big Baby Slim”, an exclusive streetwear clothing line by Dajah Cain.
This year’s mental health charity event was the most creative experience ever! Check out the photos below and read about each designer’s purpose in participating in this mental health fashion event.

Her Love Clothing | by Tamika Watson
“Her Love Clothing” by Tamika Watson is a great women’s empowerment brand that stands for self-love and dope style. She created the women’s empowerment brand with a mission to advocate for self love and creativity. She uses her talent to design stylish pieces like those seen in the image above. “Her Love’s” featured collection at the “My Mental Health Fashion Show” consisted of comfy athleisure, with bold printed designs of the brand’s logo. This Baltimore, Maryland based brand has a crown in it’s logo to remind women that they deserve to be treated like a queen in an effort to empower women.
Weirdos Only | by Esintrik & INDIGOBLUEMERMAID
This eccentric and beautiful brand expresses a rather intentionally unique art through fashion. The designers of Weirdos Only, Esintrik and Indigobluemermaid, believe fashion can express more than what meets the eye. They describe their style as manic and liberation, which can be interpreted by the uniquely crafted pieces above. On their “Weirdoville” website, their mission to create an inclusive community of like minded “liberated weirdos”, a.k.a people who are different is apparent.

B.L.O.W | By Shari
Beauty Lies Only Within (B.L.O.W.) by Shari, is another strongly femininely influenced brand that stands for women’s empowerment. This confidence boosting brand emulates fun, personable, and fly style. Shari hopes that her artistic pieces can empower any person wearing it to be confident. In addition, she hand sews her clothing line to add more personality to it. Just like each of us is a different person, each of her pieces will make you feel more beautiful in a different way.
