On Monday August 19th I attended Fashion Fete NYC 2013 at M1-5 Lounge, 52 Walker Street, NYC. Now what is Fashion Fete? Here's a little excerpt from their website:
"Fashion Fete is one of the most anticipated largest fashion and networking parties to hit the East Coast! In its 3 year tenure, it has quickly becoming the hottest summer events to grace the City that never sleeps. This year, the event is slated for August 19.
It is coordinated by Tiffani Knowles(Executive Producer and Managing Editor of Newd Magazine), Wardell Duncan(Executive Producer and Pres/CEO of The Vision 3 Group and the founder of ZionSociety.Com), and Alicia Ramsay(Executive Assistant). I attended as a press blogger representing Moruka Designs and Fash Plus & had a great experience. Alicia was super attentive. I spotted her almost immediately upon entering M1-5 and she ushered me over to the Press/VIP area where she showed me around and gave me a rundown of the set up & press blogger duties. Additionally, she ushered interviewees over to the VIP section for interviews, making sure that needs were met. (Oh and she's Guyanese too. A+ Lady!!)
There were vendors,event sponsors, and giveaway sponsors which included Full 5 Media Group, B-Design Drafting Services, Smooth Contours, The Lewis Butu Collection, Cuff Em, 127 East makeup, Moruka Designs, Ministry New York and others, Designers included Rebirth by Kerry Donald, Yhanique Lopes, Khalil's Hatitude, B. Nathaniel BeSpoke, Timeless Elegance, B. Pretty Inc. and RoyalT Wear featuring Team Africa and The Lewis Butu Collection. I was able to interview 4 participants as well as take photos. I really enjoyed interviewing everyone and hearing their stories. They each impacted me in very different ways.
All of the designs were wonderful but my favourite was Rebirth by Kerry Donald, I loved her neon dress and was so happy that I was able to interview her. Dennis Arnold of The Lewis Butu Collection was also a really awesome guy. I enjoyed interviewing him about his jewelry.

I was accompanied by my home girl Latoya Ramos of Ministry New York & fellow press blogger for Fashion Fete. I loved her outfit. Thank you Divine for being our personal photographer!
Now unto the threads...
|Testing my lighting. My camera doesn't do too well in low light situations but that ain't gonna stop me. -_-|
I will be doing four separate posts for each interviewee so they all get the shine they deserve. So stay tuned for the first one next week. Check out some more from Fashion Fete NYC 2013 here & here.
