Brooklyn Fashion Weekend – Powerhouse of Emerging Talent

| May 25, 2012

BK Fashion weekend is New York’s premier fashion weekend for emerging talent. The event is in association with Industry City and is known as the “Powerhouse of Emerging Talent”, we recently went down there to find out what Brooklyn really had in store fashion wise. The rumours were in fact true and we weren’t disappointed at all with what we found bubbling under the surface in BK.

Four fashion filled evenings were accompanied by chocolate covered strawberries, complimentary cupcakes, energetic and bold art insulations, not forgetting the fire eaters and gymnastics as if things weren’t entertaining enough.

The opening night was a diverse range of Eco-Friendly and Innovative designers. I’d have to say there was definitly lots of inspiration flowing down the catwalk like the Born Again Vintage, Fotoula Lambros and Lakuma very Afro-centric collection from a Brooklyn based designer loved the african astetic being celebrated state side.

Another one of our favourites was the amazing metal jewellery and accessory collection by Laurel Luxe, a totally unique appoach to fashion.

Amongst many others we also really enjoyed Nur Shakh a collection produced by a design duo all the way from Kazakhstan and Jewel Shannon a bridal collection with a truely Caribbean vibe which gave the event a very international vibe.
