Essence Music Festival makes 25 this year and are taking this event to new heights. This year, the festival is introducing the ESSENCE® Fashion House, which will be a curation of runway shows, trunk shows, and pop-up shops.
We are excited to announce that VIP Luxury Hair Founder & CEO, Ashanti Lation, has been selected to head up the team responsible for providing and performing all hair needs for the runway shows. Our team of select stylists are elated to express their creativity and talent through this amazing opportunity. We are extremely proud of our team for being recognized on such a notable platform. You can catch the VIP LUX hair stylists' work being showcased on the models as they strut the runway in exquisite pieces by household names and up-and-coming Black designers.
In addition to the runway shows, enjoy live conversations and visit pop-up shops at the Fashion House. The Live Conversation segment will feature the industry's elite fashion and culture icons. To name a few, Dapper Dan, June Ambrose, & Common will be giving insight on how to build a fashion empire, tips of keeping up with all the latest trends and more. The pop-up shop will feature an extensive collection of all styles from ready-to-wear to runway staples. Make 2019 your most stylish year yet by joining us at this event.
Essence Fashion House takes place Friday-Saturday at 10AM-5PM & Sunday at 10AM-2PM. This event will be held at Gallier Hall (545 St. Charles Avenue). Tickets are now for sale and can be purchased here.
