Soooo it's no secret that the Alpha Collection has been a long time coming and I appreciate all of the support behind this amazing feat.
I wanted to give my readers and the lovers of my DeVeReaux Ready to Wear pieces and little backstory behind the meaning of Alpha and the muses who made for great inspiration.
First up- is the incomparable and iconic Golden Globe nominated, survivor of breast cancer-Diahann Carroll aka the original "Dominique DeVeReaux". Known for her ground breaking role as Julia, she was the first black woman to star in a television series as well as the first black woman to win a Tony for Best Actress.
However, my generation came to fondly know her as Marion Gilbert- mother of Whitley Gilbert in "A Different World" and of course of scene stealer and show shopper- "Dominique DeVeReaux" of hit 80's television show- Dynasty.
