It was a day to remember for Janet Jackson as she walked the red carpet at the 15th Annual Harlem Fashion Row Fashion Show and Style Awards in New York City on Tuesday, September 6. As part of the event, the 56-year-old singer was given the Icon of the Year award for contributing to the music industry.
Brandice Daniel founded Harlem’s Fashion Row in 2007 to provide a platform for African American and Latino designers who are underrepresented in fashion to showcase their talent.
The Theme Of This Year’s Conference Was”Future’s Past”
In a press release for the event, it was stated that the show’s theme would be “Future’s Past” and that the exhibition would showcase the industry’s future. It would be an exhibition showcasing numerous accomplishments, hardships, and advancements in fashion, which inspired HFR to create this show to explore innovative collaborations and highlight black-owned brands.
CEO of Harlem’s Fashion Row Brandice stated, “This special anniversary event will support further advances for diversity, equality and inclusion in the fashion world.”
She added, “African Americans have a rich history in fashion, although many of their historical contributions have been buried or unrecognized. However, HFR would not exist without the work of black designers like Lois Alexander Lane, who founded the Harlem Institute of Fashion and the Black Fashion Museum.”
