My first featured designer is Michael Knight!!! I know ya'll have seen him before, he was on season 3 of Project Runway and featured on BET's Rip The Runway. He was by far my FAVORITE and, in my opinion, definitely should have WON!!! I liked Michael so much because his designs were FLY and SEXY! He doesn't "look" like the average fashion designer, but that is what makes him so intriguing! We need something new in this fashion industry, something to spice up things! It's time for a change and Michael Knight is IT!!! I have no doubt in my mind that he could be the next TOP designer among young Hollywood!
Michael Knight was born in Germany but raised in Atlanta. He graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor's Degree in Apparel Design and Merchandising. Michael became a small hit in Atlanta while designing for Jagged Edge, 112, Ciara, Free, and the Infamous Queen Latifah! Not feeling that his career was at the level he wanted, he auditioned for Project Runway. He was turned down the first time, but picked himself up and tried again for the next season. He landed a spot on Season 3 of Project Runway and has been on the move ever since!
Okay, I do not know how I have not heard of this lady before! I did a little research and checked out her "stuff", and she is Super Talented. Ladies and Gentlemen, I bring you, Tracy Reese! She is Creative, Innovative, and her clothes just blew me AWAY!!!
HARD choosing the looks to feature in this post because all of the designs were so AMAZING! These clothes are EXACTLY what I see myself wearing five years from now, strolling down the streets of New York. Not only are African Americans making strides in Politics, we are jumping leaps and bounds in Fashion! We are not just responsible for Urban Wear, we design Modern and Contemporary Wear also. Tracy Reese is just one of the many Equsite, Black Fashion Designers!
