Bermudian Fashion Designer Hooks Up Exclusive Shoes For R&B Star @ChrisBrown (Photos Inside)



The superstars are the limit for fashion designer Alshante’ Foggo.

The 28-year-old’s one-of-a-kind pieces of apparel and accessories recently caught the eye of R&B singer Chris Brown.

Understandably, getting attention from big names in the entertainment business is the highlight of her fledgling career.

“It has opened new opportunities for me, so getting recognised outside of the Island has definitely been huge,” Ms Foggo said.

“With Chris Brown, I had the opportunity to meet with him in New York two weeks ago and now I have some other projects coming up with other artists through to the networking with him. I may have a project coming up with rapper Fabulous and Musiq Soulchild.”

Ms Foggo had the opportunity to make two pairs of designer Timberlands for Chris Brown, after crossing paths with him through her Instagram page.

She frequently reaches out to stars on social media by tagging them in the photos of her best work. Last month the gamble paid off.

“Chris Brown got back in touch with me and asked me to make him some shoes,” she said. “I was excited and surprised and kind of wondered ‘Is this really him?’ because with social media you have a lot of fraudulent activity and fake pages.

“Initially I was shocked but he gave me his contact details and we spoke and he gave me his shoe size.”
