Harlem’s Fashion Row celebrated its 13th annual Style Awards and fashion show event. This year’s program, like the vast majority of shows and events this season, was produced entirely online. The pre-recorded video was emceed by former Ebony Fashion Fair commentator Audrey Smaltz along with HFR’s founder Brandice Daniel.
In addition to forming major brand partnerships with childrenswear brand Janie and Jack, Nike, and Gap, HFR also received a $1 million grant from A Common Thread, which Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour acknowledged on camera during the virtual event, saying that she was grateful to Brandice and the HFR organization and looks forward to continuing the partnership together.
The awards ceremony portion of the evening included accolades for British Vogue’s editor in chief Edward Enninful; Teen Vogue’s editor in chief Lindsay Peoples Wagner; Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss, whose award was presented by Tracee Ellis Ross; and publicist Nate Hinton.
Last but not at all least came the annual HFR fashion show featuring the work of designers Kimberly Goldson, Richfresh, and Kristian Lorén. Each designer showcased their fall 2020 collection.
