Fall Trends 2020

(Written by Rachel Wedge)

So far, 2020 has been a year of unpredictability, transformation, and unity. The fashion trends have reflected these words and will continue to do so as we transition into the fall season. This fall, we want to showcase black designers and how their work and activism is transforming the fashion industry. 

Skirt Suits

Although our office settings have been looking a little different this year, a skirt suit is the perfect addition to your WFH or in-office wardrobe. The skirt suit inspires confidence and will make you feel like your own CEO, the perfect #Girlboss uniform.

This look from Deity New York features a corset jacket that adds both a feminine and bold touch to your typical skirt suit. It embodies the power of an unapologetic woman. 

Plaid Blazers 

Plaid blazers have been and continue to be a fall staple. They can be dressed down with a pair of jeans and a cute blouse, or dressed up for a chic office look.

This boxy plaid blazer from Nordstrom has a single button and microcheck pattern, forming the ultimate versatile piece. 

Ribbed Dresses 

Ribbed dresses are perfect for autumn because of their naturally comfy nature. They can be dressed up with boots or heels for a fancier fall outfit, or you can pair them with your favorite sneakers for a more relaxed look.

This ribbed dress from Reiss is sophisticated and stylish, with ruffles at the bottom for a feminine touch. 

Athleisure

Athleisure has been a trend for quite some time now, and especially with virtual meetings and classes, this fall will be no exception. This blend of everyday comfort and street style gives you the ultimate look to transition from your virtual meetings, to grocery shopping, to grabbing drinks (socially distanced, of course).

This “DNT Inverted Crop Hoodie”, also from Smith II, is another great addition to your fall wardrobe. 

Red Tones

Red tones are an autumn staple. They look stunning on every skin tone, and remind us all of falling leaves.  This fall, why not add a few unique items to your collection of red-toned pieces?

Esé Azénabor and My Refuge House celebrate strong women while fighting sex trafficking in Dallas

Esé Azénabor debuts its new collection titled Woman X Power at the brand-new Fashion Gallery on 100 Cole Street, Dallas TX 75207 in the Design District February 7th 2016.

Fashion Designer Esé Azénabor

The designer’s inspiration for her 8th collection stemmed from observing powerful female business, industry and community leaders all across the world that give the weak a voice. My Refuge House (MRH), a non-profit that supports and empowers girls rescued from human trafficking in the Philippines, was one of Esé’s inspirations. In particular, MRH’s Director of Engagement, Kim Jones, who has devoted her time and energy into supporting the recovery of these precious girls became one of the new collection’s muses. The designer was so touched by the heart- breaking stories and the mission of Restoring One Life at a Time through MRH that she had to get involved.

Nigeria-born Esé created the Woman X Power collection to demonstrate that strong, confident and almost-intimidating women can be sexy as well as feminine. The entire collection pays homage to women powerhouses that lay the pavement for the following generation of women leaders to come.

Esé Azénabor is known for its beadwork, but in this collection the envelope was pushed even further by creating 3D beadwork that will tell a story of its own. One can expect simple and clean lines. However, be prepared to gasp over beautiful green, white, gold, silver, and blush tones with some dark tones to complete the color palette. The runway show will also feature Esé’s first bridal couture collection, created after several of her bridal designs went viral on the internet.

February 7th won’t be your typical fashion show, in celebration of strong women, 30 Influencers will walk the runway to showcase that powerful women come in all shapes, sizes, and forms. These are as follows:

Esé Azénabor, Stephania Schirru, Mebrat Pahlavan, Kim Jones, Rhonda Sargent Chambers, Christine Butcher, Erika Salter, Joanne Herda, Carinthia Kishaba, Brooke Branagan, Cathy Vieth, Phyllis Comu, Jennifer Cassidy, Emily Cassidy, Hillary Kennedy, Ruqaya Hamza, Carmen Surgent, Stephanie Hollman, LeeAnne Locken, Dawn Mellon, Yana Greenstein, Melissa Rountree, Melissa Enriguez, Donna Richardson, Ilana Narosov, Jessica Chinyelu Anibowei, Tama Tran, Shabnam Pahlavan, LaToya Jones and Naila Malik.

Empress Gilbert, CEO of Expressive Geo Design will entertain the audience with her southern charm as the evening’s emcee.

Silent auction items, light bites, treats by Pudding on Smiles, and an open bar sponsored by Kruto Vodka will be available for guests to enjoy throughout the evening.

A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to My Refuge House to help support their work of restoration.
