Saturday, November 11th, local fashion gurus, Fashion Forward curated a quick but impactful show called, black men are lit.

Held at the Wheeler Arts building, the show started promptly at 7p. The audience was pretty thin at this point, but the show must go on! Press sat at the end of the runway, so we sat in the middle row. After intermission, the audience grew.

After seeing FF’s last fashion show, surrounding the majestic-ness of black women – we were excited to see what they had in store to honor black men. The fashion was much quicker than the last, but on point for typical runway shows.

Like the ‘black girl majestic‘ fashion show, ‘black men are lit’ was broken into acts – Black Power, African inspired, classic man inspired and street/sportswear.

Overall, a great night of fashion of the beauty of black men!
