Whitney Lee is an ambassador for the National Eating Disorders Association, International Model, Southern Girl…. loves to cook!
Her message to women of all ages, “My goal is to encourage and inspire you to celebrate your miraculous, exquisite, and unique body… and to resist the negative messages telling you that you are not good enough.
If I can convey one message to you – “Beautiful” is not a size… “Beautiful” is not an age… “Beautiful” is not a procedure…
“Beautiful” is celebrating the characteristics and qualities of your body, while nourishing and exercising it to be as uniquely healthy and fit as only you can be.”
Below you will find information and a photo album on the fashions and boutiques that will be represented at the show.

The fried green tomato BLT is made with applewood smoked bacon, organic lettuce and tomato from local farmers, on fresh baked bread. Red velvet is a southern staple from years of perfecting grandma’s recipe. They are made with love in small batches to ensure quality. Their number one concern is having happy customers.
