8th Annual Fashion 500

So I was kinda bummed that I didn’t get a chance to enjoy Fashion week yet. Luckily for me I was invited to the 8th annual Fashion 500.

For the past 8 years the month of April has be known for the Black Fashion week. There are so many African American & Latina Designers that hardly get the recognition they deserve. Normally people tend to focus on the models but this night in particular is all about the people behind the scenes. They continue to make our culture unique.

Brands such as Coogi, Fubu, Karl Kani, pave the way for designers such as Duckie Confetti, Daniincholedesigner, & the list goes on. Brands like these are what keeps our culture alive.

My friend Randy and I at the Fashion 500

Randy is also the host of “Saturday Morning Cartoon & Cereal,” btw make sure to check that out on youtube yall. Anywho I was a guest who happened to become a reporter for the night, since Randy’s partner was ill. I had no clue what to ask because I wasn’t prepared but it turned out great. I can honestly say I pushed through with flying colors.

During the interviews I listened more than asked questions because I was soaking up so much information at once. I met individuals who’s brands i’ve been a fan of for many years. My favorite was with Willie Esco, he’s such a legend and calm collected dude. For him to have accomplished so much he was extremly humble and very well spoken.

When we asked them to give advice to any upcoming designers they all said patience is key. You can’t rush greatness and maybe people don’t understand the vision now but eventually it will catch on. Wise words from numerous designers.

Fame can’t be rushed, it will come when the time is right.
