The first Sip and Shop event took place this past Sunday November 15th, 2015 at the Ewing Mall. The show was hosted by myself and good friend Ky'Zir which featured 5 fashion brands from Trenton NJ, as well as various vendors from the area who displayed everything from sweet edible cupcakes, to edgy bomber jackets. I was so blessed to be the producer of this event long side Lyasia Green (Owner of Monae's Boutique). My purpose for creating this type of event was to help emphasize the power of unity, and show just how amazing things can be when the residents in Trenton NJ who all share a common interest in entrepreneurship and fashion come together. It was such a liberating feeling to see so many come out and support such a positive movement and to support everyone apart of the event. The Night began with a mixer from 5:30-6:30 encouraging attendees to shop the vendors who set up their amazing display in the venue. The runway show began at 6:30pm. Lets take a look at which designers showcased.
First Designer to open the show was Shahedah of Shahedah Textiles, this extrodinary young woman brought the Trinindadian carnival flare all the way to Trenton setting the runway on fire with her jaw dropping designs.
Her line started out with swim wear decked with feathers, chained bikini's, all created from fabrics created and designed by Shahedah.
The second portion of her collection included her knit wear designs featuring some shoulder baring designs, and cropped jackets. HOT! see all of her looks below! and be sure to follow Shahedah Textiles on Instagram: @shahedah_textiles
