The Stars Align For Harlem’s Fashion Row Annual Dinner And Awards Ceremony
By Avon DorseyEssence
Founded by Brandice Henderson-Daniel, Harlem’s Fashion Row is the leading force in advocacy for multi-ethnic, young and talented designers being able to showcase their designs before a large industry audience- an audience they might not otherwise have access to.
Tonight’s celebration honored LeBron James- NBA Champion and a true advocate for the disadvantaged—he recently opened his ‘Promise School,’ Bethann Hardison—the original voice that pushed for change in the white-washed modeling industry, celebrity stylist Jason Rembert and Dapper Dan.
Promoting a dress-code of ‘black tie and Nike’s, the ceremony brought out the best and the brightest purveyors of the fashion industry, and the red carpet was lit with unique and inspiring fashions.
