Dr. Courtney Hammond, June Ambrose, Johnetta Boone
Well once I got through two accidents on I-85, I finally made my way to Macy’s annual event for Black History Month. They had three panelist who schooled us on the legendary fashion of the Soul Era. This year the panelist included Stylist and Designer Johnetta Boone and Celebrity Fashion Stylist June Ambrose. The line started to fill up at about 5:30pm yesterday evening at Macy’s at Lenox Mall and everyone was eager to hear what these ladies had to say. Ofcourse we are here in Atlanta, so people came in their best looks, I loved it!
The ladies talked about how they started in fashion, their inspiration and more. June said she gets inspiration from watching tv, The Smurfs, a homeless man, traveling, just about anything. She also talked about people she has worked with over the years and giving a huge shout out to Missy Elliott to name a few. Johnetta has worked a lot in television and says you have to know lighting, textures and what works best for television. They also showed different looks with the Soul Era and a fashion student won and was awarded scholarship money at the event too! It was a very informative event and everyone loved talking to them and asking questions. Check out a few images I snapped from the event.
June is wearing a Victoria Beckham dress, too cute!
