The Essence Street Style Block Party !
Saturday was the 3rd annual Essence Street Style Block party here in Brooklyn, DUMBO to be exact, right under the Manhattan Bridge. The streets were lined with vendors and the underpass was where they set up the stage for the DJ, performances, award ceremonies, and fashions hows. There were awards given out to a few select fashionistas including Kelly Rowland, as well as a fashion show featuring eye-catching festival goers, and a performance from Ayo Jay. All events scattered throughout the day with DJ's spinning in between. This event was a celebration of fashion, self-expression, and Black Culture. The performances, music, food trucks, and various booths all created an eventful and unforgettable street festival experience but what stole the show was the turnout. Attendees showed out in their best summertime festival looks with bright colors, african prints, and patterns. In the name of "Street Style" here are some looks I captured.
