Mint Swim Collection 2018

Designer and former reality star Draya Michele's showed her MintSwim collection on night two of Style Fashion Week during NYFW. This show was jammed packed with fashion influencers, fashionista and celebrities. In the front rows  was  La La, Fabolous, Christian & Justin Combs and Masika Kalysha, Briana Wilson, Breah Hicks  to name a few. Draya gave her audience what they can for, the collection was over the top sexy and playful with a great color story . Its always  great to see swimwear in February especially when its 28 degrees outside. 


On February 11th, Romeo Hunte New York presented the Fall/Winter 18' collection during a runway show at The Standard, High Line. The lines were long  to get in the show and its was raining, but so worth it. I was so impressed  with as  many as 29 models of African American ethnicity or decent strutted down the runway in shearling, fox furs, mixed fur with patchwork, PVC, and reversible raincoats, cropped jackets. The space was intimate but for a reason not one detail went unnoticed. The guests  300 editors, influencers , bloggers and fashionista watched this amazing parade. Romeo Hunte was one of my favorite show this season, job well done definitely a brand to watch.

Fashion Lion Dapper Dan

Dapper Dan was high fashion in the 80's every rapper,fly girl and guy had a custom jacket, short set or suit from the king of Urban Fashion. Dapper Dan born Daniel Day opened his original Harlem boutique in 1982. He sold custom-made designer clothing to celebrities such as Mike Tyson, LL Cool J and Eric B. and Rakim and pretty much every rapper for over a decade. The new Gucci store will offer made-to-order pieces designed by Dapper Dan in custom measurements. The is everything for Urban fashion, he stand a long as a designer to compete with one of the largest luxury brand and win in the end. I'm so proud of Mr. Dapper Dan, I never met him or was able to wear his custom clothing but I've always been a fan. You are truly a FASHION LION!  You make us PROUD!

Fashion Lion:R&B singer Monica Brown

This Fashion Lion is for all my R&B fans, you can not talk about style and fashion without the mention of  Monica. I'm a little bit older than Monica but I feel like I grew up with her. She is always dressed in the later designer fashions, but never following trends. The one thing I admire about Monica is her sense of  style and how confident she is in her own skin. She is a Fashion Lion and role model to many and this Fashion Lion take her position seriously.

Monica is a mother of three beautiful children, wife, artist and businesswomen. When it comes to style she is always a Fashion Lion. We love Monica Brown at M.E.F. Style Report , we secretly want her to start her own apparel line! Why not?

Check out some of our favorite looks.

NYFW17 Snow don't stop no Fashion Show

My journey to NYFW17 started on Thursday morning with a canceled flight  from Fort Lauderdale to Newark Airport because of the snow storm.  But as you know New York Fashion Week never stops.  "NO SNOW CAN STOP THE SHOWS! I knew that's so I waited until Friday and I was on another flight to NYFW17.  The schedule I created with my PR partner remain the same no  cancelation or changes.  So upon my arrival  I was off to my hotel to drop my bags off and I headed straight to the fashion shows. This year my company M.E.F. Produtions LLC had the honor of hosting seven students and two teachers from Norfolk State University  to NYFW17. The first show started at the Stewart Hotel and the rest is history. I will like to thank Poste Haste for all of our travel arrangements and Alphonso Reed PR for providing  an amazing fashion experience at the fashion shows.

Lady Gaga Super Bowl Fashion Explosion

First thing first the game was an roller coaster,  but the half time show was pure entertainment.  Lady Gaga is hands down one of the best entertainer of her time. She is an  amazing vocalist, dancer and visionary.  Her performance was bold,  entertaining and exciting.  But I was most impressed by her many costumes changes, fashion candy for the eyes. The boots were everything and my favorite. Lady Gaga is definitely a Super Star and a fashion lion with her super bowl looks by Atelier Versace. Check out Lady Gaga's Super Bowl Fashion Explosion!

Fashion Lion Ms. Lauren Hill

Lauren Hill the icon,  no words can describe how I feel  about this fashion lion.  Her style is inspiring and ever evolving.  She is a talented  R&B singer and rapper.  A legend in the music and fashion industry . Lauren Hill is naturally beautiful and  confident with her own style and flair. She  took sometime away from the industry and can back like a lion. Lauren Hill  is the original "Urban Hippie" a Fashion Lion in everyway.  Since the early 90's Lauren Hill has been breaking the mold and the stereotypes of black beauty and urban fashion. She was one for the few artist in the music industry pushing individuality and still is.  Her style  is positive,  fun,  playful, natural  and effortless. This is why Lauren Hill is a"Fashion Lion! These are some of my favorite  looks.
