Fashion Week Events for the Indiana Black Expo commenced Sunday, July 15th with a kid's fashion show in Castleton.
On Monday, a fashion show at ICON lounge was hosted by Ms Nicole René, the owner of Passion 4 Fashion Week and Expert Celebrity Stylist. I didn't get to make it in time, but it looked like a blast!
I went to the Fashion Show at Perfect Picks in Castleton. The show was fun and light-hearted! As you can see below, the models were diverse and the pieces were so unique! Ebony Nicole is the owner and founder, and she recently opened an additional location in Greenwood! In addition to her booming fashion savvy, she's also a business consultant! In an interview with her, she told me she worked her full time job for 7 years before making the switch. I find this so inspiring because most of us wait so long to start our dreams right. She also gave expert advice for small business owners to make a plan and write it down every day!
Wednesday, the fashion show was just across the way at Footprints! It featured multiple designers, diverse models, and of course unique style! What I love most about these fashion shows is the sense of community. It's always great to see men and women of color in a space, supporting each other and lifting each other up! The little kids shone like stars as they sashayed down the runway! Some were full of energy, some were shy, but they were all super precious!
The other events leading up to the Fashion Show on Saturday at 4:30pm at the Convention consist of the pop up shops and a mini fashion show from 6-8pm at Runway Diva today and a combined fashion show with two boutiques at Nap or Nothing and 28 Boutique from 6-9pm at Lafayette Square Mall!
