Harlem Week Fashion Show
30 July 2014
One of the events that headlined Harlem Week was an hour-long fashion show. All of the designers were African-American; most of them came from Harlem.
The event showcased everything ranging from Evetta Petty’s Harlem’s Heaven Hats for men and women, to a new designer duo aged 8 and 10, Wesley and Willow that revealed crocheted shorts for young people. Men strutted around in everything ranging from casual wear in bold prints to loungewear. Women wore clothes made from the combination of burlap and silk and couture pieces of leather, lace, and feathers. Plus sized models had a place as one designer marketed her vibrant, stylish clothing for fashionably curvaceous ladies.
The fashion show had something for everyone and the crowd was pleased.
