Harlem Fashion Week

Harlem Fashion Week 12 season took place at the newly opened swanky Rennaisance Hotel, right next door to the iconic Apollo theater yesterday. The organization presented 3 different shows with each comprising of 5 to 6 emerging designers. A winner in each case was selected by panel of judges to be mentored in the business of fashion by the organization.

I had the immense pleasure of being one of the judges! Prior to the show, a day before, a Business of Fashion Symposium took place where I was one of the esteemed panelists. Emmy Award Winning stylist to Beyonce’s Black is King phenomenon, Zerina Akers was the Keynote Speaker. We were all able to share our knowledge and expertise in the fields of fashion, styling and modeling with the audience.

The ultimate goal of the annual event is to help nuture emerging talents in various fields of fashion. Some notable Hip Hop legends, still riding on the success of the ongoing Hip-Hop at 50 celebration, blessed the affair with their presence. Celebrants included Ice T, DJ Hollywood, Doug E. Fresh, and Ralph McDaniels, who was honored as a cultural Icon. With such an event in iconic location as Harlem, it was inevitable for everyone to turn up and show out.
