Inbox Interview 7: M.B. Productions Has a Passion for Fashion and Everything Girls Love!

Mathena Blanding, owner of M.B. Productions, has a passion for fashion and helping fashion industry players (big or small) become greater! Through the production of various events, M.B. Productions helps models, designers, and artists showcase their work and develop their product — THEMSELVES.

She’s a Boss caught up with Mathena via Facebook inbox to learn more about M.B. Productions and their upcoming events. Get acquainted  with this young professional and her event production business when you read the rest of this month’s Inbox Interview. Enjoy ©

#ShesaBoss: Tell us about M.B. Productions and what motivated you to start an event production company.

Mathena: My Company is very different from others because I specialize in three areas — event coordination, fashion show production, and model development. Most of my events are fashion based [and when developing them] I like to think outside of the box. I plan events for anyone who loves fashion and understands the life style and [I like to work with] people who respect creativity.

What motivated me to start M.B. Productions is my love for fashion; it's not all about clothing. Fashion is a life style and a way to express yourself in many different ways.

#ShesaBoss: When did you launch MB productions and what has been your most memorable moment since?

Mathena: It's been seven years now and throughout the years I have had different types of events. From fashion shows to musical showcases and parties. My most memorable moment was my Roc tha Mic events. It was a way to get artists in one place and under one roof to build, learn, and become better. At every show I saw my sisters face; she is no longer here so that event really was great moments for me. She was my number one fan.

#ShesaBoss: When you think about the future of MB Productions, what do you see?

Mathena: Wow, my vision is so big! But over all my vision is to have a team of creative minds working as one. I want to be known not only as a business [that achieves], but also as a company that helps others to achieve their goals. I want to give a positive service back to others as M.B. Productions moves further towards greatness.

*Note: There is a new location. See paragraph below
#ShesaBoss: Speaking of the future. Your next event, Everything Girls Love, is August 25th. Can you tell us more about that and where the idea for the event came from?

There’s so much talent here in Albany, I wanted to have an event that would help others as well as myself. THIS event is based around fashion, beauty & pleasure which every girl loves! When I came up with the idea so many people reached out to me. Some first timers as well as others who have done vendor events before. We will also have To life! from Delmar, NY; they will be giving out information for anyone interested in learning about breast cancer.

I'm happy to have so many creative companies coming together as one to make this a successful event.

#ShesaBoss: What events do you have in store for the remainder of the year and into 2013?

Maybe another vendor event or some type of social networking for models. In 2013, I am having a fashion show that's going to based around different tribes and that's all I can give away!

Everything Girls Love will be held this Saturday, August 25th from 1pm-9pm in Albany, NY on 77 Central Ave. If you would like to stay in touch with Mathena and M.B. Productions, find her on Facebook as Thena Patrice Blanding.
