Rolling Times: Art in Black Fashion Show Recap

On August 27, 2016 beginning at around 5:45pm, guests from all over RVA poured into the newly renovated Black History Museum located in the heart of the city's Historic Jackson Ward on 122 W Leigh Street. 

We were invited by the show's Head Director and Creator, Adolphus Ingram and couldn't have been more ecstatic to attend.
Under the sponsorship of Blacktop Kings and Queens, Royalty Carpet Care, Southern Kitchen, and Pride, a perfect event space was picked to host the theme of the night.
The sold out fashion show that didn't even begin until 7pm was overflowing with anticipating viewers, fashion lovers and photographers way before the models began to dress for their first look.
In the first room was a line of vendors with a wide range of offers for excited buyers. The eclectic vendors were eager to greet visitors with their amazing oils, makeup, African styled clothing and books.
Vendors included Mickii Mac, author Danielle Allen, jewelry designer Nappy Nerd, Natural Hair enthusiast Natural Goddess & Natural Adonis, author Ronnie Sidney II, Triple 7 Jewelry and Fashion Studio 16 to name a few and A Brand New Wave Barber and Natural Hair Shop were on site along with a few makeup artists to make sure the models stayed beat and laid!

The show started promptly at 7 and the first half included designs by Haus of Klyde, Tough Cookie, and Harrell's Fine Fashions with a brief intermission by the amazing songstress and guitar duo Legacy Unplugged.
Second half included the Metra J Collection, Stitch 89 by Chanel and PRIDE by the show's creator Adolphus Ingram. PRIDE's models walked to the stylings of artist Tai Wo!

Thanks to Fashion Show Coordinator Christopher Dionte', the show was dope and cohesive.
The designs and designers were amazing.
The hosts Troy Michel and Micha Bam Bam White kept us in stitches!
If you missed this one, definitely don't miss the next one!
