Harlem Fashion Row Brunch During New York Fashion Week

 

Today I’m headed to Harlem Fashion Row Shop, Brunch, and Be Social for New York Fashion Week at MIST Harlem. I’m such a fan of the CEO & Founder, Brandice Daniel. When I moved to Harlem in October 2010 Brandice and I were neighbors living one block from each other. After chatting about our passion for NYFW we got together and worked on a shoot with designers Sammy BKiki Kitty Doll. I was also introduced that day to a talented photographer name Rog Walker.

This year I was so elated to be able to attend Brandice brunch. I knew I could not miss any of her events this year. Being that last year I was not able to attend anything due to my lupus & lyme being very active.

I gathered up my Barbarella’s Annya & Kassie and we headed out to the city to Shop, Brunch, and be Social to support the designers of color in the fashion industry that would not be featured at New York Fashion Week.

Nice to be around Women In Business-BossLadies…always good to see Kim Roxie with Lamik Beauty. Luv her!

It’s always nice to see Sammy B and her fashion grow in this industry. I’ve been able to see her at different time in her career with the last time on set during Lifetime TV Show Project Runway

So we are toasting to Annya booking her first fashion show during Fashion Week. I chatted with my girl Kim from Lamik Beauty and asked if she could squeeze in Annya to do makeup at Sammy B show and Kim said Yes!

At the end of today’s successful event I was able to chat with Brandice again about getting together again like the old days…Brandice I’m here to tell you, your a Black woman who ROCKS! #HarlemsFashionRow

I had the honor to work with Brandice, CEO & Founder of Harlem’s Fashion Row on Saturday morning. A talented team of women was on set; Nia did great styling, Tracey did FAB hair, and I handle the glamxurious makeup. The models were 2 amazing upcoming designers; Kiki Kitty & Sammy B. Of course, I can’t forget about photographer Rog Walker. Enjoy some behind the scene pics I managed to capture.
