Harlem’s Fashion Row will hold its 13th annual Style Awards and fashion show on Sept. 13.
The mission of Harlem’s Fashion Row is to help ethnic designers gain opportunities in fashion.
Next month’s virtual awards show will honor two leading editors in chief. British Vogue’s Edward Enniful will receive the Maverick of the Year award and Teen Vogue’s Lindsay Peoples Wagner will be honored with the Editor of the Year award. Pyer Moss designer Kerby Jean Raymond will be given the Designer of the Year award and Nate Hinton will pick up the “Publicist of the Year” award.
Gap Inc. is sponsoring the Publicist of the Year award and Shea Moisture will sponsor the Editor of the Year award. Actress Trace Ellis Ross, who recently acted as moderator one night during the Democratic National Convention, will present Jean-Raymond with his award.
After the ceremony, three designers — Kimberly Goldson, Rich Fresh and Kristian Loren — will present their new collections virtually.
In June, HFR introduced its nonprofit Icon 360 to help BIPOC during the pandemic and received a $1 million donation from the CFDA/Vogue A Common Thread. The winners of the first Icon 360/Vogue Common Thread award will be revealed during the virtual fashion show.
