New York Fashion Week
B Michael Presentation
September 15, 2015
Written by Wendy R Williams
B Michael designs are the epitome of American style – American both in vision and origin (the line is manufactured in New York City). Think Philadelphia mainline, the Eastern seaboard, garden parties and punch.
For Spring/Summer 2015, Michael showed a selection of day wear, frothy party dresses and elegant gowns. His looks for women were flirty and fun. And unlike many designers showing for fashion week, Michael also created some beautifully fitted sport looks for men.
Michael hosted his presentation at Harlem Stages, an 1890’s era historic theater that has been featuring artist of color for the last thirty years. Front row guests included: Ashford & Simpson's Valerie Simpson, Henni Kessler, Tamara Tunie, Phylicia Rashad, Karen Phillips, Mark-Anthony Edwards, Pamela Newkirk, Sharon Bowen, Amelia Ogunlesi, Jean Shafiroff, Flo Anthony, and Myrna Colley-Lee.
