For years Jacksonville Magazine has hosted a fashion project. I’ve had the honor to participate in two them and I was excited to see all of the teams and help backstage for the 2018 fashion show. Each year has gotten better and better! Many of the designers showcased their work from all over. My favorite part is there were a lot of African American designers showcasing in this year’s project.
Although, I am a Jacksonville native my heart is in New York during fashion week. Tonight, felt like home for me as a lover of fashion, I truly enjoyed every designer that showcased. The setup was AMAZING! This event was held at WJCT, who would’ve thought that a broadcasting studio could turn into a runway show!
The fashion project is an event that takes place once a year that allows models the opportunity to grace the front page of Jacksonville Magazine as well as get a full spread. Tonight, 25 models competed in hopes of winning the grand prize. The designers were also competing to win the grand prize as the winning designer.
Enough of my ranting here are some highlights from tonight’s show:
Winning Designer: Kathleen Balbona
JMFP18 winner is Danielle!
