The 3rd annual Essence Street Style Block Party was the perfect punctuation of melanin style during this #NYFW season. There was a wave of love and excitement in the air. Everyone was happy and really enjoying life. The vendors, the music, the families that came out, and all the entertainment held a high energy that kept us going all evening. I was there for the fashion, but the LOVE – more importantly Black Love -that enveloped DUMBO on Saturday was truly something to experience.
Despite the heat – which was unbearable at times – everyone came out dressed camera ready, showcasing a range of uniqueness that created a rainbow of creativity. We had the pleasure of seeing Ayo Jay perform an energetic set, including his summer hit “Your Number.” The beautiful Naturi Naughton of hit show Power hosted the Street Style runway show. And many were excited to see Kelly Rowland who was the recipient of the “Closet Crush” award.
