Recap: Harlem’s Fashion Row Presentation

We all know that when it comes to fashion, far too many of our BG and guy designers aren’t given the adequate exposure to showcase their talents.

That’s why I made it a point to head over to Harlem’s Fashion Row’s annual show last Friday at the Jazz at Lincoln Center to celebrate our creations taking center-stage.

Harlem’s Fashion Row 9/2012
The amazingly talented Dark & Lovely lead stylist, Keith Campbell, was on hand making sure the models were runway ready.

Founded by Brandice Henderson in 2007, this year’s HFR featured designers: Latisha Daring, Nzinga Knight, Omar Salam, Bethune Brothers, and fashion favorite Kevan Hall.

Structured, eye-catching prints and colors dominated Latisha Daring’s presentation.
 Nzinga Knight showed that she has a knock for creating flowy feminine looks. 

The Bethune Brothers featured tailored styles such as pencil skirts and textured trenches. 
The uber-statuesque model and reality TV star, Nicole Murphy, graced the catwalk in an all-black, show-stopping jumpsuit during Omar Salam’s presentation. 

For the finale, Kevan Hall’s models looked red-carpet ready cocktail frocks and flow-skimming gowns in an array of candy-colored and sherbet shades. 

SPOTTED: Vanessa WilliamsTasha Smith and Natalie Cole 

I actually didn’t notice Natalie Cole during the show, but managed to snap some paparazzi-esque pics of her entering her car after the show.
