Fashion Magazine Essence Celebrates Street Style At NYFW
Essence is bringing its renowned Street Style to life with a block party fused with music, art, fashion shows and gourmet food September 7 in DUMBO. The magazine’s first-ever Street Style Block Party and Awards extravaganza will celebrate real women and their fabulous style during New York Fashion Week co-hosted by Vanessa Simmons and Grammy nominated Jazmine Sullivan.
Following the block party, an intimate Street Style Awards dinner will honor its top four female trendsetters in fashion: Celebrity stylist June Ambrose, actress Tracee Ellis Ross, designer Azede Jean-Pierre, and fashion blogger/photographer Tamu McPherson. “As one of the most popular editorial franchises within ESSENCE magazine and on Essence.com, Street Style applauds real women and fashion taste-makers who are setting the trends and bringing inspiration from the catwalk to the sidewalk,” said Essence editor-in-chief Vanessa K. Bush. “The Essence Street Style Block Party & Awards not only puts real women front and center with a unique celebration of self-expression, but adds a fresh, fierce element to New York Fashion Week for fans and influencers alike.” During the day, The Essence Street Style Block Party will feature DJs and a live musical performance, runway shows, art installations and curated shopping and dining, as well as styling tips and beauty makeovers.
