Meeting Reuben Reuel
It was such an absolute honor to be dressed by Reuben Ruel recently at one of Pop up beauty’s behind the scenes fitting. I’m a total star struck typically so when I heard that one of Beyonce’s designer was around I was eager to meet him.
When I saw his collection and I was in awe, something about these vibrant and colorful African prints made me feel “home”. Being an island girl I’m always drawn to colorful fabrics.
I went to introduce myself and, wow, I was so impressed at how nice, humble and engaging he was. Doted of such a magnetic personality, I couldn’t believe that he was actually taking the time and introducing to me his collection and even tweaked me in his famous Khalilah kimono. I was so giddy as you can tell.
I have the utmost respect for this beyond talented designer, I admired his perfectionism during the fashion show, he was attentive to little details and knew exactly how to match the right accessories on the models. A real artist!
