This past weekend I had the pleasure of hosting an incredible fashion event presented by Runway Couture owner Christian Crawford and Le’laMone’ owner Lakisha Greene. The event held at Broad Streets Mix Gallery in Richmond, Virginia was like no other fashion event this fall. Chock full of some sophisticated and trendy pieces created by some brilliant designers, this event was one for the books when it comes to highlighting DMV style and creativity.
During the event, I got the chance to see what I hope were inspiring aspects for everyone who attended. I appreciate a good muse like anyone else, so to be a part of such a phenomenon of a gathering, was both motivating and visually entertaining to say the least. Below I list, my favorite highlights…
- Fierce Models – I rarely saw anyone come down the runway that didn’t bring it 100%. That’s a great way to keep people interested, models that know how to deliver a garment down the runway like a model should!
- Great Music – B-Sounds had to be on the air at 10pm, but still knew how to throw in some good music. He even inspired an attendee to get up and show the crowd what he was working with at 70 years old.
- Designs that We Love – All of the outfits that came down the runway were styles that were realistic but glamorous. The designs weren’t too far fetch, and they all looked attainable, but the level of luxury and detail added to its presentation was so commendable. Loved all the looks!
- Cute Little Girls Modeling & Dancing – Shout to Anoshi Entertainment for their incredible team of girls who deliver down the runway like they’ve been doing it since conception. I was especially inspired by their level of confidence at such a young age. Incredibly cute for sure!
