As New York Fashion Week gets underway here in the city, another fashion week event descended upon the borough of Brooklyn. Essence magazine held their 3rd annual STREET STYLE BLOCK PARTY in the streets of DUMBO and all of the melanin was present. Everyone including fashionistas, vendors, photographers/videographers and artists attended as this was a great opportunity to network and jam to some great music.
This year I was able to check out some awesome clothing that could come in handy for some dance sessions in the future. I also got to bump into two dancers I've worked with and two photographers I've met in previous events/meetups. Huge thank you to those that allowed me to photograph them this year. It was an honor and pleasure meeting you and hope that you had a great time at the festival.
Now, it's time for that "a photo is worth a thousand words". So the following images will serve as the next few paragraphs, lol. Enjoy!
