FFFashion Fete 2013 was a hit! And if you weren’t there, you missed! Out that is.

Newd Magazine, in conjunction with Vision 3 Group, has done it again by delivering a quality fashion show with a diverse display of couture fashion and style. Nine designers, twenty plus models, a lively crowd, and networking opportunities made this year’s Fashion Fete all the greatness that it was.

On Monday August 19th, fashion lovers and business owners made their way out to New York City’s M-1 Lounge for the anticipated event. MC for the night, Steven Strickland, set the tone offering humor while gearing up the crowd for a great show. The featured designers each put together a unique display of innovative pieces to capture they’re individual styles. Designers Ariane Fonseca (Yhaniqua Lopes), Janice Laila Smith (King Daughters Couture), Pauline Asmah (Pauline Asmah Designs), Donna Weekes (Ethel Fashion,) Kerry-Ann Donaldson (Rebirth by Kerry Donald), Karl Brown (Khalil’s Hatitude), Alison Minott-Seales (Timeless Elegance), and my personal favorite, Terri Cann (Royal T Wear) together showcased a beautiful array of gowns, evening wear, casual wear, cultural wear, everyday wear, and dressing up just because wear.
