ENSPIRE Contributor: LaShonda Thompson

The Black Fashion Movement launched their second pop-up experience in Atlanta, Georgia, at North Point Mall late last month. The event began with a media preview at 1:30 PM, where the media could interview designers, partners, sponsors, and Frenchye Harris, the founder of The Black Fashion Movement.

Following the preview was a “Black” carpet experience where VIP guests such as the VP of SCAD Dr. Audra Pittman, Pastor Debra Morton, Marc Jackson of Mastercard, Roland Guevara of Moet Hennessey, Pastor Aventer Gray, and featured designers Tracy Nicole, Lamik Cosmetics, Dawn Franklin Designs, Kahindo, Gina Gant, Silver & Riley, Ronnel Blackmon, and more. Directly after the “Black” carpet, was a fashion show that featured all the luxury designers. The Black Fashion Movement awarded several upcoming designers from SCAD recognizing their creativity. The students were E’Naiyah Fraizer, Gregory Robinson, Thomas Gaddis. Each student walked the runway as the audience celebrated their talents.

The fashion show was produced by Frenchye Harris of The Black Fashion Movement & Chuck Steelman of Trademark Property Company. TV personality and celebrity DJ, DJ Stormy provided the sounds for the show and the VIP shopping experience. During the shopping experience, Moet Hennesey presented a toast to the Black Fashion Movement where over 100 invited guests raised their glasses to cheer on the success of the Atlanta “pop-up” stop of the movement.
