Harlem Fashion Week: Opening Night Charity Gala

September 15, 2019 - 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

| $75-$125

The 7th season of Harlem Fashion Week will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance. Harlem has served as the epicenter of music, literature, art, politics, community initiatives and of course, fashion! As Harlem is being revitalized in the 21st century, Harlem Fashion Week will introduce a new era of fashion culture to the Harlem community inspired by its rich cultural heritage. In honor of this momentous centennial Harlem fashion Week will feature “All Things Harlem” at our Harlem Fashion Week events.

On September 15th, 2019; Harlem Fashion Week will honor Misa Hylton a groundbreaking stylist reshaping the fundamentals of style within R&B and Hip-Hop culture and pioneer in the fashion industry. As well as Geraldine Ross, entertainment mentor, fashion influencer and mother of the international supermodel Shaun Ross.

In addition to acknowledging these transformational women in fashion; Harlem Fashion Week will honor Harlem community leaders and organizations that have maintained the legacy of the Harlem Renaissance into the 21st Century: Vy Higginsen, executive director of the Mama Foundation of the Arts, Tony Rogers, the co-founder of Harlem Week, Jackie Rowe-Adams, the co-founder of Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E, Athena Moore, Director of the Northern Manhattan Office for Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce, Figure Skating in Harlem, Star Boutique and the Harlem Police Athletic League.

Harlem fashion Week was founded by the mother-daughter duo Tandra Birkett and Yvonne Jewnell. HFW creates a cultural canvas for both established and emerging designers to showcase their creativity in an atmosphere that supports diversity and inclusivity. HFW will bridge the Downtown fashion hub to the Uptown vibe for a rich cultural experience.
