Rashidah and hair stylist Cynthia Alvarez
"Love & Hip Hop" newbie Rashidah Ali is already getting her hustle on with an exclusive new line of shoes.
Rah-Ali celebrated the launch of her private label collection Encore. As shoe consultant to the stars and the CEO of 5 Approved, Rashidah knows stylish stilettos! She felt it was time to step out on her own and bring her ideas to life.
"The launch of ENCORE was my rebirth putting the focus back on what my talent is," Rashidah said in a statement. "It felt great to be surrounded by people who genuinely have been there with me since the beginning of my career as a shoe consultant and who have been supporters of me becoming a designer."
Khalil Kain, Kijafa Vick and Meeka Claxton were all among the supporters for the launch of Encore as were a few of her "Love & Hip Hop" co-stars. Flip through the slideshow below for a look at Rashidah’s line and see who else was onhand to toast her new endeavor.
