More than 1500 people came to Legacy Hall last weekend for the inaugural Juneteenth fashion show. That made it one of the highest attended fashion shows in north Texas. Local community leaders and fashion enthusiasts gathered at the runway included Julie McCullough (The Pin Show Founder, Veteran Fashion Designer), Dr. Catrina Pullum, Dallas Black Bloggers group, Kim Alexander, Celebrity Makeup Artist Erica Smith, Fashion Stylist Courtney Walker, Celebrity Model Anita Hawkins, James Thomas, and many others. Guests enjoyed food and beverages from Legacy Hall, while listening to the latest in Hip-Hop and R&B by DJ Dr. Mack.
“The show was spectacular. It was so inspiring to see the wealth of fashion talent and creativity right here in DFW,”. Stephenetta (Isis) Harmon, Owner of Mezai, said. “It was also a privilege to be there as a vendor and to introduce my accessories to such a fashionable audience. Everyone was welcoming, supportive, and ready to shop! You couldn’t ask for more.”
The show featured numerous surprise elements including a surprise Father’s Day tribute to Energy Check designer and new father Le’Nard Meyers, a special Juneteenth message by WRLDFMS Tony Williams, and a DFW Black Creative and Fashion Industry tribute video by Think Three Media. Harrison Blair, President of the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce, also made an appearance to speak about the importance of supporting black-owned businesses. The experience concluded with a live performance by 5-Time GRAMMY Award-Winning Artist and Entertainer, WRLDFMS Tony Williams, where the crowd sipped, sang and danced the night away.
“My experience in the Juneteenth Fashion Show was absolutely amazing! It was an honor to be a part of such a beautiful moment in DFW and for the culture,” AND-MADE designer Alexia Daniels said. “I absolutely cannot wait for next year to reach even more people and to continue to share the message of Black Excellence.”
The high-energy, vibrant and soulfully joyful extravaganza was presented and produced by Think Three Media — a Dallas-based creative communications and media agency that specializes in the unique messaging and amplification of DFW black-owned businesses and its Founders. The historical event featured an array of colorful designs and accessories hailing from 11 local designers (many award-winning) and brands, including Amy Holly ResortWear, AND-MADE, Creteation, Don Morphy, Energy Check, Ese Azenabor, House of Dasha, Indigo 1745, MEZAI, One Street Sales and PWR WMN.
