We were contacted by the H.U. Fashion Show coordinator Ms. Yasmine over the summer and were excited to participate in the event. Homecoming Fashion shows which occur at Howard University's Cramton auditorium has graced the presences of notable clothing lines such as the Sean John, Rocawear, Baby Phat and Phat Farm. This year's Homecoming theme was called "R.A.R.E" as in Rekindle an Amazing Remarkable Experience. Their goal was to create a homecoming experience which would be memorable;
and so they did.....
This year's Fashion theme was entitled "Art of War". It featured scenes such as street war, glam war, and ours "tribal warfare" which we thought to be an interesting title. We worked with the commitee to extend a political statement on the effects the on the War on the African continent and the paralyses in infringes on its people. Trying to make some fashion out of that our scene was choreographed to resemble a civilian uproar that would occur after a coup d'etat. The models strud our wares looking like warriors "standing for their rights to be free to live life".
It was superb!!
