Runway Report: This Day/Arise Magazine's African Fashion Collective 2009
Check out ESSENCE.com's backstage access with fashion and beauty editor, Qianna Smith at This Day/Arise Magazine's African Fashion Collective 2009 during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at The Promenade in Bryant Park on February 13, 2009 in New York City.
Solange Knowles wowed the crowds at the African Collective after-party held at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Knowles confessed to the crowd that her vocals were a little rusty and had to get a shot in the butt to perform. She later told ESSENCE.com that it was well worth it and would have not missed celebrating Africa’s top designers for nothing.
