When I found out I was going to interview Althea Harper at the 2014 Fashion Meets Music Festival, I have to say, I was a little nervous. Not only is she absolutely gorgeous, but I wasn’t even supposed to pick up my pass till 1:00. (Interview was at 12:30) They always say it’s best to arrive with plenty of time and that was definitely true this weekend. FMMF is so massive that I was really lucky I got to the right places at the right times.
So, wanna know what set me at ease? Well we have a few things in common that were instantly noticeable. She has someone she loves supporting her every move AND she has a new baby girl. I my ever supportive fiance, and a brand new baby just a month younger than Althea’s. That right there, for one reason or another made me feel right at home. I also be important to note that she has a warm and genuine smile and is extremely down to earth. It’s really nice to see someone rising to fame like she is while keeping a real sense of who she is and where she comes from.
