Thirsty Roots attended the very first Fro Fashion Week in Atlanta created by Tarin Boone of Naturally Me Media. Many natural women showed up from all over the country with larger attendee numbers from California, Michigan, New York, Florida and Illinois. There was even a woman their from Bermuda…WHOA!
The two day event pampered, spoiled and educated through panels, a beauty lounge, shopping arena, mix and mingle party and a runway fashion show.
Celebrity stylist Felicia Leatherwood, keynote speakers and vendors were able to share their knowledge about the natural haircare industry and movement amongst what seemed like a family affair.
There were many memorable moments that took place making it easy to catch them through video and pictures. Tarin and her crew did a wonderful job especially for the very first time out of the gate. This is NOT a normal thing.
Several BIG named companies were their including Shea Moisture, Curls, Sofn’Free, Jessicurl, Kinky-Curly, Naturally Curly, Organic Root Stimulator and Huetiful to name a few.
I expected to see more Atlanta natural hair bloggers on the scene being that this was a hometown natural hair event but was seriously thrown off. (Shakes My Head!)
Fro Fashion Week has laid it’s foundation and is set to present to many naturals twice a year. If you missed the initial show don’t worry it will be back soon.
Until then enjoy the video recap and images caught by Thirsty Roots.
