Young, Hip & Chic (YHC for short) was developed while Tweety was watching TMZ, Extra, and E! “I was watching these shows because I like to see what people are wearing but I was becoming so tired of seeing Brittany Spears and Paris Hilton without panties! Not to mention, I thought to myself, these are role models?” Tweety passionately expresses.
YHC is to celebrate the art of fashion by educating people between the ages of 12-19 years of age that fashion, in fact, is an art that is expressed from the designer to the people that purchase it. Each week, the show will focus on different styles from antique, to grunge, to whatever trend is evolving and revolving. YHC will also inform people with fashion facts, the history of fashions, and the meaning of words that are heard and not often explained. “I think that to be a fashionista, you have to know the five W’s of fashion—who, what, when, where and why.” Tweety explains. “The overall experience of YHC is to show that fashion can be fun; to know that clothes do not make you, you make the clothes, and being a diva is so overrated,” she explains.
“I think that loving who you are from the inside shows on the outside, and that love of fashion makes you a true fashionista!”
She has been a guest judge for the Jo’ni Modelz, Inc- Rip the Runway Competition, the host ofthe FBH Philly Fashion Week for the youth (2009 Spring Collection), and she is the protégé of Essence Best-Selling author, Miasha and the spokes girl for her foundation, Ask Miasha. “Tweety is a great girl and very inspiring. She is someone that other little girls will look up to and I am so proud of her,”says Miasha. She will be releasing her first book,Girl Power: the Go-To Guide for Teens to Becoming Perfect Young Ladies, and is now working on the sequel, Girl Power Two: Building a Better You! All of this while maintaining straight A’s in school every year!
