Okay it's pretty safe to say that the Block Association's 2nd Annual "Fashion 500" event was a SMASH HIT! Used as a platform to bring out the wonderful collective of fashionable folks of color working in the fashion industry to be honored, it worked on SO many levels! This year we strive to raise the bar up a bit higher with the inclusion of a model host (Camille McDonald), an accompanying PSA clip to raise awareness about our mission (which is to get April recognized as Black Fashion Month). As well as heavier media coverage from the likes of Xl magazine (read here), Essence, Ebony, and Uptown too! I'm so proud of my team (the Block) and the tons of fashionable folks that came out to support our cause for higher elevation through recognition for our people. It's a thang of beauty I tell ya. Don't wanna be long winded so here a couple of pictures that I somehow manged to take during the event as well as a video clip from Sugar Water Radio & my crew. Plus info for the "April is...Black Fashion Month" finale dine & dance tonight! BTW here's the "Fashion Fly Hundred" download mixtape if you missed that too. Trust me, this time NEXT year twice as BIG! Plan accordingly.
