Bronx Fashion Week

I wanted to post this earlier, but I took so many pictures at Bronx Fashion Week that it took a while to sort through them all. In the slideshow below, there are about  32 pictures and that’s after I eliminated a bunch of others! If you follow me on Instagram, you caught a small glimpse of what it was like. I attended the grand opening on Friday, Sept. 5 and the Casual Wear show on Saturday, the 6th.

Opening night, the crowd was almost as fashionable as the models themselves with pseudocelebs The Mob Wives – in attendance. Councilman Andy King and Culinary Ambassador Baron Ambrosia were also attendance looking particularly dapper.

Jo Lance (Friday) and the hilarious Qurrat Ann Kadwani (Saturday)  hosted as models of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds strutted down the runway.

As a Bronxite, I felt a real sense of pride seeing all of these talented designers’ work be displayed in the borough, again reaffirming that the Bronx is a place where all sorts of industries are welcome and can thrive here, including fashion!

Finally! It’s time for Bronx Fashion Week!

When Fashion’s Night Out was put on hiatus last year (apparently it wasn’t generating enough revenue…maybe it was all the free champagne I drank while wandering into stores I’d never heard of before…), I was definitely a bit bummed, because while I don’t need to have the latest trends and fashions, I really like to know what’s in each season. This is why Bronx Fashion Week couldn’t have come any sooner. I need a fashion fix!

This week, starting Friday, September 5, audiences will be treated to runway shows, networking opportunities, and even a skateboard competition. Bonus – it’s being held at one of my absolute favorite places in the Bronx, the Andrew Freedman Home!

Needless to say, this  event is huge for us and a first for our borough. It spans three days so you have multiple opportunities to check it out. For tickets, click here. Interested in bringing a friend and saving some cash? Check out the Groupon deal here.

See you all on the runway!

P.S. Okay, I will not actually be on the runway, unless I happen to get lost. But I will be there and if you can’t make it, make sure you’re following me on Instagram to stay up to date with all of the events!
