Last month during ESSENCE Festival 2019, we launched our inaugural ESSENCE Fashion House–a luxe experience highlighting all things Black style. If you weren’t able to attend the three-day extravaganza at Gallier Hall in New Orleans, don’t fret, because we’re bringing Fashion House to New York City.
This summer’s event featured notables like Iman, Joan Smalls, Indya Moore, and Lena Waithe, so for the New York City leg you know we’ve got some epic surprises in store. Before the official start of New York Fashion Week (September 6th), ESSENCE will kick off the festivities with a cutting-edge curation of fashion activations highlighting Black creatives across the globe. On September 5th we will host a series of panel discussions and runway presentations, including a special edition of the beloved Texture on the Runway hair show sponsored by Carol’s Daughter and Creme of Nature.
But, that’s not it for our New York Fashion Week festivities. ESSENCE will also launch our first-ever Best In Black Fashion Awards ceremony on September 4th. The star-studded gala will highlight the best and brightest models, photographers, stylists and more. While this event is invitation-only, we are allowing our readers to get in on the fun by voting for the nominees here. Categories include Emerging Designer of the Year, Accessories Designer of theYear and the Red Carpet Maven award, to name a few.
Registration is now open for ESSENCE Fashion House and voting for our Best In Black Fashion Awards dinner ends on Tuesday, August 27th. ESSENCE Fashion House is sponsored by Target. For more information, click here.
