The fashion designer and winner of Afro Model Awards 2014 Best Newcomer Designer, Catherine Monique, recently sent out a thank you message to everyone that show her support and love towards a successful 2014.
"I would just like to say a big thank you to all those who voted for me, best newcomer designer for the Afro Model Awards 2014....
It's amazing because I WON
These last 3 months prior to the event, I have been working so hard to produce the collection that come out last night, and the saying hard work pays off. It has paid off for me but it doesn't stop there this is only the beginning of my journey. I have lifted off and the sky is not even the limit.
I want to say a special thanks to Sandrine Carmen Tengwo to Susan Ajilong to Elise Jay and to my baby sister Tamera 'Kanon without this people behind the scene keeping things organised helping dress the models and just being the amazing crew they were I'm not sure how I would have done it all.
I want to say a special thanks to my mum my dad my brother and my sister baring with me through this time and all the fabric cuttings in the house.
I want to say a special thanks to my auntie Dianne Blackett-Cudlipp who through all she is going through helped me out when should.
I want to say a thanks to my auntie Nams, my auntie Wendeline Vega my auntie Harriette Vega-Kimbouri for there supportive emails
I also want to take this time to remember my special uncle Nicky from many miles away he showed love and support with his last message to me telling me how proud he was of me. He wasn't there in the flesh but a part of him hit the runaway and I'm so glad it did.
I also want to thank God because when you put him first in your life everything else is taken care of
