Contrary to internet rumors, The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, which opened July 5, 2011, had actually outgrown its space and the location was placed for lease as the new location was being completed.
Bailey has now joined forces with celebrity photographer Derek Blanks, and the two have combined their successful businesses and now share a location. Seems like a win/win collaboration… Cynthia has all the young, up & coming models in need of headshots and Derek is quite well known for creating brilliant photos!
Bailey and Blanks celebrated the grand opening of their new location with an all White party last weekend, which (coincidentally) will be aired on the upcoming 6th season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Nene Leakes, Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore & Porsha Stewart all joined their fellow Atlanta ‘housewife’ in celebration of her grand opening. Fashion Queens, Derek J and Lawrence Washington also showed their support.
More photos from Bailey & Blanks all-White grand opening celebration below…
Nene and Gregg look happy and I’m sure they’re anxiously anticipating the premiere of “I Love Nene: The Wedding”…
Cheers to the newlyREwedded Mrs. Leakes!
Hopefully Phaedra & Apollo will soon reveal the name of their newest son, who is almost 3 months old. She’s also been working on both RHOA and her new spin-off show.
Porsha Stewart is happily living the ‘single life’ after being granted temporary spousal support in her pending divorce…
Kandi shared the photo above as she was joined by her “Kandi Factory” co-stars Victor Jackson & Kwame Waters.
Kenya Moore is still single… still drinking and still “homeless” after losing her eviction battle with her landlord (click HERE if you missed that).
At least she still has “MISS” Lawrence by her side….
Kandi, Derek J and Cynthia Bailey strike a pose…
Phaedra & Derek Blanks…
The REAL househusbands of Atlanta: Greg Leakes, Apollo Nida & Peter Thomas
I just noticed that Apollo is the only one who bucked the system and rocked black instead of white… 😯
Everyone looked awesome!
Congratulations to Cynthia and Derek on their new partnership!
