I had the awesome opportunity to cover the Indie 500 Fashion Week Finale Runway Show. Hubby and I made it a date night and surprisingly, he enjoyed it. He loved that there were designers who made men’s clothing.
Indie Fashion Week was created by Harley Morgan and Terrance Payton (ROE the Agency, LLC) to create a fresh look at independent fashions who may not be able to gain big recognition when they first launch on the scene. Throughout the week, the color PURPLE was represented throughout all of the events and several songs by Prince were the theme of each individual event.
Most of these designers made their debut at this event, which made it even more special for me. I love seeing young people go for their dreams and make it happen.
The show started with a full homage to Prince with a singer and dancers. I loved the energy of it and the dances were old school dances. After that, the first half began. There was a powerful soliloquy that dealt with Black Lives Matter in between a few designers. The Prince impersonator came out also for a wardrobe change. (Check out gallery for pictures.)
After the 1st half, there was a brief intermission which consisted of mixing and mingling as well as samples from IZZE Sparkling Juices. I love apple, so I choice the Sparkling Apple, which was refreshing. There was also a snack bar to purchase snacks and beverages as well as a few vendors.
We will definitely be going back to this event and even bringing our 16 year old daughter! I applaud Harley and Terrance for a fun and magical night.
