Put away your quarantine couture and bust out the designer wardrobe! Small Boutique Fashion Week headed down to New Orleans during Essence Fest to promote indie fashion designers and small businesses that are making waves locally and nationally. The fashion-forward event took place at the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in the Warehouse District where the walls were lined with Nigerian artist REWA's fantastic paintings in the i'je awel'le: A Beautiful Journey, A Safe Journey exhibition.
Models showed off new, brightly-colored fashions made by Her Love, Priddnewyork, and Fie Clothing while local and national businesses showed off their one-of-a-kind bespoke wares. Check out JLerone Socks Boutique for custom and colorful socks and BeauKu Kandles for the most fragrant candles you can find in the city. ⠀
