The revamped concept consisted of one night packed with action from 15 runway designers including Project Runway stars Korto Momolu and Amanda Valentine, Meroki, Don Morphy, Ferrah, Abi Ferrin, Chasity Sereal, Bentley + Lace, House of Cynthia, Brittany Nicole, Vaeward, Vendals, Silk Threads by Ruby Bhandri, Noha Raouf and Modish & Swank. Capsule collections from Sydney Morris, La Lo La Clothing, Amberleaf, Tashumbra, Colt Collections, Dalina Ford Swim, Daniel Hinojos and Ca$hmere Mafiiia were also included. With the new open floor plan, guests also enjoyed a mingling atmosphere as well as an epic gallery featuring jewelry and accessories designer pop-up shops.
The “NOIR” theme led guests to dress in their most sophisticated and elegant all-black outfits while creating the perfect contrast to allow all the pieces on the runway to really stand out. The venue buzzed with influencers, media guests, celebrity stylists and reality TV stars, who immersed themselves along with other fashion enthusiasts in a night of fashion ranging from the grand black carpet entrance to the open bar with signature cocktails, the runway show, and the vendor exhibit.
A special and exciting moment presented itself when Bernina, a presenting sponsor, awarded the Houston-based designer also Hurricane Harvey Survivor Chasity Sereal with the Bernina Fashion Fund which equipped her with a BERNINA 560 (B 560) sewing machine valued at $3,399.
