Essence Fest Street Style

Essence Music Festival is held July 4th weekend every year right here in New Orleans. It’s one of the biggest music festivals the city hosts and the streets turn into impromptu fashion shows. Charle’ Washington and I hit the pavement, hotel bars, and pop up shops to bring y’all the style. Check out our findings and learn more about the fest on the Buffalo Exchange blog and check out more photos on Facebook. Here’s what we wore to brave the heat.

Not your normal fashion event: Gris Gris Fashion Lab

Lately I’ve really been into events that stand out from the rest of the same old, same old format. One that recently caught my eye is the Gris Gris Lab  Fashion Lab at the Burrito Juke Joint followed by a set from DJ Soul Sister. It promises to be an interesting evening featuring styles from Fari Nzinga, BlackPowerFlower, and Gia M. Hamilton.

The Burrito Juke Joint opens at 6pm with the Fashion Lab happening from 8-10pm. DJ Soul Sister will be spinning her brand of groove from 8pm until midnight. If you are looking to have a little fun and find an outfit for Essence Fest there is no other place to be this July 1st. Visit their Facebook event page to RSVP and learn more about the Gris Gris Lab on their website.
