Entrepreneur and fashionista Angela Simmons returned to New York Fashion Week to showcase up and coming designers on Sept. 9, just steps away from the Hudson River at Style 360. After a successful Electric Daze showcase last season, the 26-year-old mogul in the making decided to have a presentation in which the clothes were the focus.
Before the show started, our Enstars Exclusives team ventured backstage to see the madness of fashion show prep, minutes before the models hit the runway. All of the girls were getting the finishing touches added to their make-up and hair, as the clothing stylists steamed the outfits. Excitement and nerves filled the air!
Celebrity guests like Love and Hip Hop ATL's Ariane Davis, Alexis Stoudemire, Amber Sabithia, Erica Campbell with her sister Goo Atkins, Russy Simmons, Sofi Green, Monyetta Shaw, Tameka Raymond and more attended the show. Popular DJ and visionary Quiana Sparks worked directly with Angela to create a playlist that would keep the audience dancing throughout the presentation.
Emmy award winning violinist Damien Escobar played a hip-hop inspired composition to open the artistic evening, as dancer en pointe performed around him. Clothing from designers Smith the Second, Big Park and Muehleder were featured during the show. All of the models rocked the clothes, but one special guest stood out more than the rest-Well, actually two.
Angela Simmons sister Vanessa walked the runway and closed the show with her adorable daughter Ava. Auntie Ang allowed the bundle of joy to appear on her first runway, making her fashion week debut. Not only was the entire idea adorable, the oldest Simmons looked as flawless as ever.
