One word comes to mind when you usually think of black culture and that's Essence. There's a certain type of swag when it comes to the confidence and personality that's attached to African American culture. Essence makes sure black women come first in news, entertainment and motivation. They revolutionized the magazine industry and has become a cultural institution in the African-American community so it's only right for Essence Fashion House to Slay New York Fashion Week.

There was only one way to kick off New York Fashion Week and that's in style at Essence Fashion House. On September 5th located at Affirmation Arts, the 2019 Essence Fashion House celebrated the creative genius and impact of global black talent. With over 4 floors of different interactions highlighting all things black, they did not come to play. Essence Fashion House recently launched at the 2019 Essence Festival to create a luxury experience to acknowledge African American style. With numerous panels, fashion shows, master classes, and fashion icons what sets Essence Fashion House apart from other New York Fashion Week events is the interactive experience you had to connect with African American creatives in the industry such as Jason Bolden, Justine Skye, Anthony Hamilton and many more. Essence always manages to represent the culture when it comes to sharing our experiences and celebrating our history. Essence Fashion house will go down in history as the best interactive event that represents and supports the essence of black culture.
