The close-out of Fashion Week in Brooklyn was epic with the SIP NYC Inc. All Black Fashion, Wine & Arts Elegant Affair. The afternoon was filled with excitement as the attendees experienced black excellence. During Fashion Week, it’s never been that all the designers are black; the hosted location is at a black-owned facility, and the food and drinks are by black-owned businesses. However, The Sip NYC Inc did just that, an all-black experience.

The designers outdid themselves, excited to be back doing the runway showcasing their new lines. Three fashion segments included suits, dresses, bathing suits, and nightwear, all new to the fashion scene. The founders of The Sip NYC Joy and James Fraser wanted this to be special. Their collaboration and sponsorship with organizations such as Beyond Styles By Miles and businesses such as Ingenious Gin & Beautiful Amore Skin Care showed how black excellence is in full effect.

The day continued with great networking and specially mixed drinks by the founder of the “Blue Wine” Coviello Salines of Amour Geneve. This first African American wine owner created a natural blue wine. Delicious Hor d’ oeuvres by KP Customized Kreationz kept the attendees coming back for more. And finally, how can you not have a black artists part of this experience, Original Art by Jacquie  Nubian.Silhouettes showcased pieces that depicted the history of blacks, the success, and the struggle.

“This was an opportunity that we couldn’t give up,” said Joy Frazier co-founder of The Sip NYC Inc. “We know we have something great, and we are going to show the world all the great talent and skills of African Americans.”
