This past New York Fashion Week the SoleScription team was on fabulously armed and ready to help with the Angela Simmon’s commemorative uniforms and fashion line for the 90th Anniversary of the Harlem Globetrotters at the annual Kia STYLE360 event.
As the line formed around the building, one felt the sense of a nightclub-like atmosphere. Celebrities with their entourage, photographers clicking away, and hundreds of fans swarmed inside the large gallery of the Metropolitan West. Watching as the attendee’s pushed and shoved to make sure they were correctly checked was an overwhelming site to behold. Not only were they anxious to get in but as the time to the show approached closer and closer, the people with seats were still scattered to find their locations.
Opening the audience to more than just the standard seating allowed the general public to catch a glimpse of the new line. As a bonus for the fans, there were ten winners selected to win a seat, complementary harlem globetrotters ball, and a photo with Angela on the STYLE360 red carpet. This, however, proved to be a challenge of rallying up the winners and separating them from the other fans. But there was no time to waste because the show was starting with a long line still trying to get inside the event!
Each piece kept the Harlem Globetrotter’s infamous theme alive with blues, reds, and whites.
Not to mention tons and tons of sequins!!! The styles of clothing consisted of crop tops, short skirts, flirty dresses, and fun little exercise bands as the cherry on top.
The menswear line was comprised of basketball jersey’s which really gave the show a more sports-driven vibe. All of the jersey’s were a part of a commemoration for the Harlem Globetrotter’s. This was the first time their style was ever seen on the New York Fashion Week Runway!
And of course we can’t forget about the shoes!!! The fashion show mainly consisted of sneakers but the guests had their own style as well. We saw everything from fur covered heels to extremely glamorous thigh high boots.
Boots seen here on Model Damaris Lewis were amongst the most popular styles.
If you love comfort then the shoes seen on this runway would be perfect for you! There definitely weren’t going to be any falling models in this show.
For all the guests, their fashion flair was put to the test. These unique shoes ran rampant amongst all the fashion-forward attendees. No one shied away from expressing their inner shoe-lover with wild prints or sneaker-inspired lace-up heels.
All-in-all it was a great way to salute the Harlem Globetrotters in a city that knows fashion can be found in even the unlikeliest of places.
Until next time fashion week!
