Macy's, Fashion Fair Cosmetics and Ebony magazine host fashion
showcase in New York featuring The Ebony Fashion Fair

At Macy's Herald Square on 34th Street, in the heart of the Big Apple, guests were wowed as Ebony Fashion Fair models took over the "Attitudes on 3" department.   The fabulous fashions exquisitely modeled received praise from the much-appreciative audience.

Nadja Payne, special events manager for Macy's Herald Square, kicked it off by introducing a soulful performance by Universal Records recording artist Rashad, who set the mood with a wonderful set of romantic songs.

Then it was showtime! Ebony Fashion Fair commentator Jada Jackson Collins took the stage and the haute couture adorning the captivating models dazzled the audience.




Among the notables in attendance were Congressman Gregory M. Meeks, Lenny Green, host of "Kissing After Dark" (98.7 KISS-FM radio); Michael Stoney, founder of Down Under Gear (DUG), a line of men's lingerie; Daddy-O, an old-school rapper; T-Money, former co-host of MTV's first hip-hop show, "Yo MTV Raps"; and Glenn Toby, president and founder of the Book Bank, an organization that provides books and story time to inner-city children.   Robert Roots, Jamez Williams, Akil Kamau, Mychal Sledge, Marcus Reeves, Heru Ptah and Cliff Lazarre were also present for the event.




In addition to enjoying the show, the gentlemen also were supporting the book-signing of Soul of My Brothers authors Dawn Marie Daniels and Candace Sandy, who edited essays written by more than 40 African-American men who share their experiences as sons, fathers, husbands, businessmen, musicians, writers and politicians in an oftentimes repressive American society.

After the show patrons were invited to get makeovers done by Fashion Fair Cosmetics experts including regional trainer and makeup artist Be'Nard Giles.

Ebony Fashion Fair is the world's largest  traveling  fashion show.
