Please welcome guest writer, stylist Steffany. After sharing with me, her experiences at the spectacular launch of the Katwalk Katerers, I had to have her share her experiences of the event with you!
KatWalk Katerers is an amazing talent management and events planning company that spotlights the skills of designers, models, hair & make-up artists and stylists. KWK helps to promote, teach and inspire new talent by giving them a platform to display their specialty. There is no regard for nationality, shape, size or height with KWK, all they see is talent! So what better way is there to celebrate? A party and a fashion show!
The launch party for KWK was held in New York City at the fabulous Katra Lounge. The house was jammed packed with folks ready to celebrate with Dhylles Waight and Dennis Davis the co-founders of KatWalk Katerers and their hard working team.
From body-con to bridal dresses, jeans and t-shirts the launch party for KatWalk Katerers had a lil something for everyone. From fashion to poetry to musical performances there was plenty to keep your head spinning.
Fashion and style were the main attraction for the evening where designers showcased their hard work and inspiration with a mini viewing of their collections. The looks ran the gamut from mens wear, street-wear, ready to wear, with plus and straight size fashion for women. There was loads creativity, color and plenty of diversity in design which kept the excitement flowing throughout the evening. It was nice to see the fellas represent on the runway with bright dress shirts and ties and of course the ultra casual baggy jeans and screen printed themed t-shirts.
My ultimate fave was the bridal collection from Saratina by Sarah Jassir. The gowns were stunning and quite original and her silhouettes can be worn by women of all shapes and sizes. Another one of my faves was a beautiful, body hugging day dress from Wilbur Pack Jr. Even from a distance you can tell the workmanship was impeccable.
During the intermissions, we were entertained with musical performances and positive social commentary through poetry and spoken word. I thought this added a little unexpected twist to the evening, as the artists interacted with the audience to keep the mood and vibe lively. It worked!
There were several noticeable fashion heavyweights present durning the celebration. Most notable were DeVoe Signature Events & Full Figured Fashion Week (TM) creator Gwen DeVoe, The Plus Academy ~ New York creator Tonya Giddens and last but not least Plus model Jeannie Ferguson.
To close out the night, guest were given goodie bags with the contact information for all the participants in the show including the hair and make-up artists. Thatâ€™s the way to keep the networking going even after the party is over.
Overall the launch party was fun and a great success for Dhylles and her crew. There is definite anticipation to see whatâ€™s next from KatWalk Katerers!
