Team Fashion Extraordinaire
ALL THE FASHION CHATTER on the east coast is buzzing with congratulatory hand claps to CEO Executive Producer Mario Daughtry, Fashion Icon Ron Cooke, Male Models Luqman Haskett and Erik Castano. Norfolk Virginia’s first Male Fashion Week was a huge success with eclectic designs and pops of color inspiring each and every event attendee. BRAVO industry leaders, your hard work and dedication to fashion certainly paid off.
The first Men’s Fashion Week Virginia ended Sunday with a Gentlemen’s Brunch at The Main in downtown Norfolk. But the highlight of the week was a series of runway shows Saturday at the COLLECTORnorfolk recording studio.
Stylist and fashion show producer Ron Cooke, formerly of Virginia Beach, launched Men’s Fashion Week Virginia in the vein of New York Fashion Week: Men’s, in which a slate of male collections concludes a week before the traditional fashion week. Cooke remains on the team that produces Virginia Fashion Week.
