Bling Boss Organization, created and founded by Vanessa Cheatham in November 2019, focuses on bringing all different kinds of creatives together to form a bigger vision. We believe Cheatham successfully did that with her Bling Boss 2022 Fashion Show event that was held at the Kol Yisrael church in Newburgh, NY. Cheatham knew that the 845 area had so much to offer and that no one should have to travel to popular areas like NYC to make a name for you. Hosted by America’s Next Top Model (cycle 9 finalist) Bianca Golden and Reporting Live 845 Moochie Merchant, Bling Boss Organization held it’s first event as a fashion show and it was a MAJOR hit! Cheatham introduced 8 designers within the northeastern region of the U.S who had their own stories to tell and how they started.
