Last night I attended Harlem Fashion Row‘s Style Awards and Fashion Show. They celebrated 10 years in business. Yes, 10 years!!
Harlem Fashion Row was founded by Brandice Daniel with the vision of creating a runway show that highlighted African American Designers. It’s no secret that people of color are barely represented during Fashion Week, whether it’s models or actual designers.
The Style Awards were amazing. They honored some of my favorites:
Claire Sulmers- Founder of Fashion Bomb Daily
Chioma Nnadi- Fashion News Director for Vogue Magazine
Andra Day- Singer
Spike Lee- SPIKE LEE!!!
It was incredible to meet Spike Lee in person. My little brother was named Mookie after the character in “Do the Right Thing”.
