AfricStyle Fashion Show

OMG! First off let me say I had an AMAZING time at this year’s AfricStyle Fashion Show presented by  AfricStyle Initiatives Vissionaire Serwah Armah-Koranteng and her amazing team which consist of her two sisters, Ama Williams Armah-koranteng and Love-Barbie Adwoa Gyameya. AfricStyle Initiatives founded in 2014 aims to educate, empower and promote African culture in its entirety from food, fashion, entertainment and health and wellness. I had the pleasure of wearing one of my many HATS and worked as a makeup artist on the Beauty Team coordinated by Tara Canty, who made sure hair and makeup ran smoothly for the models along with wardrobe coordinator Leslie Rhodes of LesAnn’s Creations. Among others who helped with this year’s production was Michelle R. Cannon-Finch, Tshomba Johnson,  Erika Princess Reinhard, Yolanda McCray and Laraine Fluker.

The day kicked off with a huge health expo bringing about awareness to diabetes, hypertension and prostate cancer, followed by the Fashion Show! O my the event was exciting from beginning to end and was hosted by fellow friend and Divapreneur Michelle D. Johnson Garrett of Divas With A Purpose and Paapa Winter who traveled from Canada and calls himself Mr. Sexy! There was an abundance of entertainment from live drumming and African dance, children dance performances, a live DJ and of course the runway show. The fashions showcased were out of this world and true, unique African inspired creations. Myself along with other makeup artist enjoyed creating beautiful looks to complement the fashions showcased. Among the designers were Teresa Diggs of TC Ties and More/Tc Royal Garments, Donellia Chives of Donellia Xtraordinary Chives and Curtis Onyango Heru.
