Understanding the assignment that the ESSENCE Fashion House always gives, attendees went above and beyond in their ‘fits. Every room of the Manhattan loft was filled the gworls stepping on necks and leaving no crumbs as they attended workshops, panels, and shopping activations.

Black fashionistas and fashionist(o)s filled the event halls, donning some of the season’s hottest looks. HelloBeautiful saw timeless garments like structured denim and lush leather, innovative hand-made custom couture, and bright colors and sheer fabrics in the space.

This ESSENCE Fashion House attendee is giving retro realness with her whimsy ensemble. The pairing of the flower bustier and purse is masterful. And her studded jeans take the look over the top.
