Philadelphia, PA (PressExposure) February 27, 2013 -- Right in time for the new year, Girlpez Magazine is teaming up with celebrity clothing designer Sheri Mckinzie of McKinzie Chic. The two entities are joining forces to design a limited edition "Girlpez" bodysuit for McKinzie Chic's upcoming spring collection. The magazine and designer have designed an exclusive bodysuit that is reflective of both brands but also fashion-forward and in tune with spring 2013 trends.
Girlpez is the brainchild of socialite Savannah Britt who founded the magazine in 2005, at the time making her the Youngest Magazine in the World. Since then, she has been featured in Black Enterprise Magazine, Scholastic's Ahora Magazine, and The Anderson Cooper Show. After seeing Sheri McKinzie's rare designs being worn by A-listers, Britt knew a collaboration was on the horizon.
"I saw Sheri's designs on Draya from Basketball Wives and it was the most chic bodysuit I've ever seen. It was tailored well and it hugged the body perfectly. I was sold! I reached out to her shortly after," Britt says of her first encounter with the designer.
Sheri Mckinzie, being a Philly-native, made the joint project an even better combination, with the Girlpez offices stationed right outside of the city of Brotherly Love. McKinzie is well-versed in the fashion and beauty world, having graduated with a business degree and having spent years working as a hair stylist. Her eye for fashion is reflective through her brand McKinzie Chic, a line that prides itself in luxury wear and quality textiles. McKinzie's pieces have been seen on other celebrities such as Natalie Nunn and Tanyka Renee.
The limited edition "Girlpez" bodysuit will make its debut on http://www.mckinziechic.com February 27th and is anticipated to sell out quickly. But the bodysuit does not mark the end for collaborations with Girlpez and Mckinzie Chic. The two brands will be partnering again in the spring to do a sip and shop event as well as a pop-up shop event.
