Howard Homecoming Fashion Show entitled Empressions: Dreaming A New Dawn unraveled with sexy, seductive intimates. Sheer, edgy panties and bras graced the stage as the beauties were being escorted by abs in black silk pajama pants. Designer Psych of Urban Intimates really seduced the crowd with this tempting scene. Then we fell into trench with hair buns of sophistication, Clarks, brim hats and penny loafers. This scene screamed (Tom) boys and blazers, as it was none the less refined and chic.

Man vs machine honored their word when saying they “cater to the creative intellectual.” The rust leather sleeves of the fire red jacket spoke complexity and style. The tailored fit of each individual piece was simply peculiar.

As the show when on, the garments evolved with even more confidence and the models followed suit as they dominated the runway. Nichole Alabi’s twist of leather and African prints really caught my eye. It’s always great seeing Howard’s up and coming designers such as herself, as well as Aussie & Davis, Lavita Clothing, Ancetaz Clothing and Good Karma. We know this is just the beginning for you all!

The final scene entitled “The New Era”, was crowned that name accordingly as Dominique Auxilly pieces exhilarated femininity, sex appeal and class. Her collection showcased the exquisiteness in a women’s canvas; leaving the crowd with their jaws dropped, literally.

It just wouldn’t have been right to end the show any other way. Kudos to Howard University’s steering committee, Prestige, their hard work bled throughout the show. The show represented just that: prestige!
