For Your Immediate Attention: Recap of ZaZ Fest Fashion Show!

**** Flash Warning ****

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am back with another fashion show review for you on this Good Friday before a long holiday weekend.

Two Sundays ago, I had the privilege of attending ZaZ Fest’s Fashion Show Installation. And, I must say it was quite a beautiful time.

I was able to attend an outdoor fashion show for the first time, and I can’t wait to go to another one.

The designers showcased at ZaZ Fest shut the entire event down, providing the audience with captivating designs and models who thoroughly enjoyed themselves on the runway.

One thing I loved about the show was the vast type of designers who shared pieces that demonstrated the talents of the Afro-Caribbean community in New England.

And, the fashions were so versatile that we received styles for the adult population, children, and accessories.

There were so many pieces I could see myself using to put outfits together in my closet. From the beautiful uses of tulle, mesh, jeans, sweat material, and African print, the designers gave the audience a glimpse of their spectacular vision.

But more importantly, the music included a brief intermission and an interactive dance party, which only made it even better.

Some designers included MPZE, ADIVA Expressions, The Chosen Few, Camille Ardant, ShotFreshot, and Adorn Me Africa.

One of my favorite pieces was a Burgundy dress suit jacket by MPZE paired with short white boots and this killer bob!

The model effortlessly graced the runway, giving nothing but face and body, showing to the audience that male suits may look better on women!

But, even beyond that, they had some excellent sportswear for children, men, and women. For those of you who like to look good while walking or playing a little golf or tennis, ShotFreshot is where you need to be.

One of the audience’s favorite pieces was a golfing set for men that included a white polo and these nice shorts made from sweat material.

But one of my favorites was a one-piece cotton jumpsuit paired with an off-white visor. The model even gave us a little dance to show off her outfit and rocked it with a crisp pair of Jordans to set it off.

And, of course, I could not forget about the accessories. Listen, y’all, designer Sabira did not come to play.

Providing us with different types of purses, belts, glasses, and backpacks, I already found five items I would purchase.

Overall, the show was a solid 10/10. It gave good vibes, good energy, and good people.

I can’t wait to attend another fashion installation for ZaZ Fest. I had a blast.

I will share some more videos and photos below.

But the ball is ultimately in your court. Would you wear some of these pieces? Or are they better suited for another type of fashionista?

Lastly, don’t forget to grab your tickets for Spark the Block on September 3, 2023. The Baddest, Ms. Trina, will be there! Even Afro-B and many other artists.

Grab your tickets at

But, as always, I will see you all in our next post.

Peace & Prosperity,
