Lunch With Kwame Winner: She's a Doll!

Sometimes good things come to those who wait.

And I've been waiting for a while to announce who won the Lunch-With-Kwame contest...

I finally got confirmation last night from the recipient that she is able to accept the prize (sometimes those pesky work schedules get in the way, don't they?), and I am pleased to announce that it is KircherJL, or @skydoll2 on Twitter.

This gal is a friend of mine, so I thought I'd share that I didn't actually draw her name myself - I relied on a co-worker of mine (and actually, hers was the second name pulled - an unnamed individual won the contest but politely declined for the sake of mystery, intrigue, shyness or another reason).

@Skydoll2 is fashion plate, herself, and I am really looking forward to the opportunity to introduce her to this successful man with an eye for design.

As I said before, Kwame Jackson is a businessman who at one time worked for Procter and Gamble. He's coming to town this week to unveil his new line of neck wear Krimson by Kwame. Take a look for yourself - the ties are sophisticated, vibrant designs that are sure to bring a modern spin to your favorite suit and cuff links *Kate swoons at the thought of cuff links.*

Anyway.

Jackson is coming to Cincinnati this Thursday to unveil his collection at a VIP reception at the Bankers Club in Downtown Cincinnati as part of a trunk show with local clothier Corwyn Apparel. @Skydoll2 and I will get a sneak peek at Krimson by Kwame's ties when we join Jackson and Corwyn Apparel COO Corwyn Thomas for lunch and also the VIP reception at the Bankers Club Thursday night.

Thanks to all of you who entered the contest - I loved reading your entries! It's obvious Cincinnati is rockin' some serious fashion sense...
