Chromat The Clothing Fits the Body

Chromat The Clothing Fits the Body

Chromat, creative designer Becca McCharen-Tran, brings her architecture and urban design to the New York Fashion Week (NYFW) runway. She transforms fashion from body fitting the body to the clothing fitting the body.

Chromat The Brand

This runway is not the expected evening gowns or ready-to-wear. It is a swimwear that is fitted and designed for any woman to fill comfortable without the large baggie shirt or bulky swim cover-up.

Tran brings Chromat to all women with her strong sense of structure, lines, and design bring a design that is flattering, sexy, and comfortable for anyone to wear.

Chromat The Runway

This runway inspiration is to reimagine the whole idea of throwing a ginormous shirt over a swimsuit while at the pool, peach or boating because of embarrassment. She believes every woman should feel her beauty and pride in swimwear.  This runway accomplishes and demonstrates this.

The swimwear line started in 2010 brings architecture, fashion, innovative design, cutting-edge, the body’s performance encouraging empowerment from the garments for all bodies. The runway provides a strong diversity representing all women.

This runway does not have the Cheetos or snacks nor are they carrying pool accessories. They come down the runway just as if they have jumped out of the pool and are heading for their towels.

The swimwear is designed for those who love two piece swimsuits, one piece that even provides more coverage if you are in a cooler climate, but love to play in the water. It is a great collection full of color and print with a great use of mesh for breathability and comfort. The cover-ups are beautiful with some sex appeal with them.

Chromat Front Row

Attending the fashion show includes Whoopi Goldberg and Miss J. Alexander, just from his own runway walk for Laurence & Chico. He demonstrated just how it is done.  

This is a fun collection for every woman to be sexy, beautiful, and confident. Chromat is your fashion go to for all your water fun.

History, Food, and Sea ~ Wilmington North Carolina

History, Food, and Sea ~ Wilmington North Carolina

Wilmington North Carolina is history, fabulous food, sea, beaches, and boardwalks. The town is celebrating 275 years of rich history of food and life in America. One of the most southeastern cities in the US is a great escape for a beautiful vacation.

Explorations

Battleship North Carolina Wilmington NC

Battleship North Carolina Wilmington NC

This ship begs visitors to come aboard. It is visible from downtown. In 1960 the ship commissioned to honor the men that served and keep the ship’s history.

Battleship North Carolina was the first to be constructed in sixteen years in New York in 1937. The history during wartime is 144 commissioned officers and 2,195 enlisted men, including about 100 Marines. This ship participated in every major naval offensive in the Pacific and saving the carrier Enterprise. The ship earned 15 battle stars. They only lost ten men in action and 67 injuries.

Exploring the ship you get a sense of daily life and a feel for battle. It is cramped and you do have to go up and down stairs to see the ship so proper footwear is important. It makes you think about being out to sea for months on end with the same people, cramped quarters, and war around you. This is a must see when coming to town.

Cape Fear River Wilmington NC

Williamington NC Vacation 4Chion Lifestyle e
Cape Fear River Wilmington NC

This river is the connection to the Atlantic Ocean. This river brings ships from all over the world to Wilmington. There are many restaurants that have great views of the river and sunsets. It is a fun place to enjoy a good pub crawl, but most bars in the area do not have happy hours.

For centuries this port has brought Europeans to America. Cape Fear River was often used for fleeing slaves to escape slavery. Orange Street is where 22 slaves escaped to freedom by way of the Cape Fear River. Orange Street place designated in 2005 by the National Park Service as part of its National Underground Railroad Network (click link to read about the Levi home) to Freedom Program. The National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program is to preserve and commemorate the history of the Underground Railroad.

There is plenty to see and do in Wilmington for families, history buffs, and couples from:

  • Boardwalks
  • Watersports
  • Aquarium
  • Tour historic forts
  • Wilmington railroad
  • Museum of the Bizarre

Always looking for good BBQ traveling across the country. Each area has their own special BBQ. Wilmington’s Mission BBQ is American and traditional to the area. This place brings the flavors of the region to dinner. Enjoying collard greens made with tomatoes, mac-n-cheese, and green beans with bacon, brisket and NC Style pulled pork with the vinegar BBQ (this food tradition is from original settlers, African slaves on plantations and modern ones). This is an Eastern-style sauce that is vinegar and pepper, no tomatoes. Bar-b-que is serious here making it all the way to state Congress to declare the official bar-b-q.

Mission BBQ opened 09/11/11 ten years after 911. There is a tradition in the 52 restaurants stops at noon on Fridays to honor the military members and stars and stripes. The decor follows this continued theme with a patriotic dining room full of tributes to those who make our country great. There is really nothing more American than a barbeque.

The staff is exceptional and give a lot of insight to the food and history.  The food is a delicious find.
