Men’s Fashion Week Virginia had a very successful run for its season two, the weather co-operated making it inviting to get out and attend many of their fashion events. Virginia is officially on the map as one of the hottest locations for fashion extravaganzas. Special hand claps go out to designer/stylist Roxanne Smith, being the only female presenting her designs was truly a black girl magic moment.
Models: Dapper Luq, Erik Castano, Marcus Clark, Rich Micucci, Sanford Gunn, and the Newbies
The 2018 kick off event Good Life – Still Life was presented at Upscale Men’s Fashion, hosted by The Dapper One and Erik Suave. When I tell you my edges got snatched all the way out, baby girl was in awe…the spring colors, diversity and male model inclusion had me literally and figuratively captivated to the fashion gawds.
I was unable to attend every event on the fashion weeks schedule due to my nine to five obligations, however, according to social media, it looks like every designer and stylist hit their mark.
The beautiful Pagoda Gardens in the historic neighborhood referred to as Ghent located in Norfolk, Va., was a perfect setting for an outdoor fashion show. All the attendees swooned at the sight of each classic models attire, accompanied by every mans best friend. I absolutely fell in love with the floral backdrop, adding a touch of elegance as each model stepped onto their separate pedestal for viewing.
The Finale: Models line up and final walk
The “Collector Norfolk” hosted the grand finale of Men’s Fashion Week 2018 in eclectic style, just what “Saturday Nights” are made for. Vibrant colors, trendy patterns, sexy designs hit the runway bringing the audience to a complete stare. Special snaps to all the designers who presented their hard work for season two, you all are the talent behind the fashion scene.
BRAVO…BRAVO…BRAVO, Men’s Fashion Week Va, you have let the world know we are popping with talent, style and class!!!
