This Fall’s fashion season marks the fifth anniversary of Harlem’s Fashion Row. HFR is the premiere organization championing the careers and success of black fashion designers.

Brandice Henderson, founder and CEO of HFR, has lined up something special to the organization’s 5 year anniversary and their famous fashion show.

Last month Henderson assembled a panel of industry-insider judges to deliberate over a group of talented designers all vying for a spot on the catwalk. Judges included: Fern Mallis (known to most as the creator of “Fashion Week” in New York City and loved by fashion fans the world over), Shawn Outler (Macy’s VP of Fashion Forecasting & Operations, Leased Businesses and Multicultural Development), Memsor Kamarake (renowned stylist and fashion editor) and our very own Huffington Post Black Voices style and beauty editor, Julee Wilson.

Winners will be announced on 7/9.
