Last night I attended Baltimore Fashion Week's (BFW) Press Party. BFW was founded by Sharan Nixon. I met Sharan at a Board of Director's meeting for Baltimore City Community College. I am on the Board. At the meeting Sharan conveyed her vision for BFW and Baltimore designers. Sharan's vision is to have the fashion community think of Baltimore, like we think of New York and Paris for fashion.
The press party was held at the Museum of Industry. The museum was a perfect venue for the event. Baltimore was once known for impeccable men's apparel. Baltimore was a leader in manufacturing men's suits.
BFW and McDonald's partnered to offer a design contest. The winner would be announced at the press party. The five finalist and their design sketches were displayed. The five finalist submitted some fab design sketches. The winner would receive $500 plus money to create their winning design. Baltimore Fashion Week is August 10th - 14th. The winning designer's garment will be on the Runway, August 1oth.
And the winner is......
