The Isossy Children ‘NY-LON’ Tea Party/photo shoot took place this past Sunday at the historic Harlem Haberdashery on Lenox Ave. The event was attended by mini socialites, some of whom you may recognize.

Amanda Rabor, the founder and designer of  Isossy Children clothing company, calls the event a success. “We had the press, we had the bloggers, we had the fabulous guests but most of all we had the KIDS and they were AMAZING,” she tells Blackcelebkids.com.

“People traveled from Virginia and DC to attend our event and that was very exciting for us. Malika Manning pulled the entire event together with a guest list which featured influential and fabulous people. It was like a who’s who on the children’s seen,” she adds.

Rabor was especially happy to have had the event at the Harlem Haberdashery(HH) boutique. “If you’ve never met the HH family or visited their store, you just have to experience it the next time you’re in NYC. It’s an eclectic mix of history and fashion presented with stylized creativity,” she says.

Harlem Haberdashery is led by President & CEO, Sharene Woods. “Primarily we sell young and emerging designers.We also sell our signature line, 5001 Flavors, which is our custom clothing division. 5001 is actually the parent company that started 22 years ago. We specifically, in that business, cater to celebrities, athletes, musicians, and various personalities in the entertainment industry,” Mrs. Woods says of her boutique.

Currently, Haberdashery is running a campaign called  #TakeCareOfHarlem, which aims to help decrease the number of  hungry Harlem residents through the mutual efforts of local volunteers & organizations.

Sharene explains, “That’s our social media campaign, call to action for a lot of different community groups. We get together, we collect donations from the community and we make brown bag lunches and write really great inspirational notes and we distribute them to various partner organizations and community groups that know that there is a need.”

Haberdashery also has an annual Masquerade Ball (in February) that benefits Harlem Hospital’s Pediatric Outpatient Department.

While on the Wendy Williams show on Wednesday, Keys talked about her latest book project. She explained , “My children’s book is called the ‘Adventures of Mama Mae and LeLee. LeLee is loosely based on me and Mama Mae is her grandmother. We really modeled the relationship after myself and my grandmother. So its anybody’s nana, big mama or grandma. It’s such an important thing, i think, the relationship between child, mother and grandparent. So [this book] shows that. So Leelee is a girl [who] just moved to New York city. She is very uncomfortable and she is worried about how she is going to fit in. So Mama Mae through her journals takes her back to Native American times.”

She added that the book is “about introducing different cultures, sonic and sounds. We actually started it as an app. So there is An Adventures of Mama Mae and LeeLee app that you can get right now. There are two books that go along with that and this is the first hardcover book….”
