Barbizon Models Hired for Black History Month Fashion Show

Industry: Performing Arts

Cole Network System, INC hires 12 Barbizon models to promenade the runway for Black History Month fashion show at the historic Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City 2/22/14

New York, NY (PRUnderground) February 18th, 2014

In the United States and Canada, February is observed as Black History Month in remembrance of the people and events of the African diaspora. While the US population observes Martin Luther King Jr. Day and history is shared and appreciated, the month simultaneously dwells on the former tribulations of our culture while celebrating the progress we have made as a country to abolish the mistakes of our past.

Amidst the turmoil and evolution occurring in the 1960′s, American fashion underwent some radical changes of its own. Hemlines went from “mini” to “maxi” and mid-calf-length skirts became popular during wartime. “Vintage” style crossed overseas and quickly gained popularity in American fashion couture and looks went timeless.

On February 22, 2014, Cole Network System and Barbizon hope to capture the spirit of the movement in a Black History Month Fashion Show. The show features 12 models who will alight on the spirit of equality and the expression of freedom through fashion. Barbizon Modeling and Acting School graciously placed the 12 models for Cole Network System. Barbizon models: Aaliyah Saintil, Amanda Ramirez, Aryanna WongSing, Cole ritchie, Danielle Wu, Gabriela Villar, Kourtney Giles, Leilany Tejada, Natalie Cyman, Tricia Cole, Veronica Scott, Yamara Taylor

SHOW DATE Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Show will be at the historic Hotel Pennsylvania on 7th Avenue on February 22nd
