Fashionistas it is about that time again! The worldâ€™s largest traveling fashion show is coming our way! To the Bay that is! So, get your hair done, your nails polished and don your flyest fit, because this yearâ€™s Ebony Fashion Fair brings you The Runway Report!
Saturday, April 18th, 2009 Ebony Fashion Fair makes it grand entrance into the Bay Area, set to mesmerize us Fashionistas with 13 breathtakingly stunning models (2 men, 11 women) and YES, a Plus Size Model! These models will strut the runway in an impeccably edited array of designers, including Christian Lacroix, Sarli, b. michael, Carolina Herrera, Ruben Singer and Jean-Louis Scherrer.
Okay, Tell Me More
If you donâ€™t know about the Ebony Fashion show, let me help you out. Ebony Fashion Fair is â€œan elaborate production fully equipped with special effects, hip-hop and R&B music as well as all of the entertainment of a Broadway show.â€ Basically, a concert for your clothes! But what also makes this event so amazing is that not only do you get the chance to witness this moment of beauty, is that you are able to partake in Ebonyâ€™s Fashion Fair commitment of giving back to the community- having raised over an astounding $55 million donated to charitable organizations and scholarship funds.
To understand just what to expect from this yearâ€™s Runway Report, Ebony sums it up beautifully:
The fashion stories for this season have been written. The trendsetting news is set to be told, and in an entertaining and informative presentation of haute couture and ready-to-wear, the 2008-2009 tour of the Ebony Fashion Fair will give all an up-close and detailed view of whatâ€™s hip, whatâ€™s hot and whatâ€™s now!
This year I am so excited to see the lovely Phonicial Washington, this yearâ€™s Plus Size Curvy Fashionista, hailing from Waldorf, MD! Trust me; I will be covering the fashion from all angles and curves, but with a special eye on her! You know I have to represent for The Curvy Fashionistas!
What is even more fabulous, in her interview in the promotional video, is that she realizes what she brings to the show, representing the ladies with curves. Knowing this, she brings an extra oomph and kick to match and exceed the energy and sass as her straighter counterparts!
