I'm sure everyone witnessed the incredible Black Fashion Week. Keiana Foster, one of our very own HGS mentors, was responsible for that astounding show. Keiana elevated the level of the Black Fashion Week with her creative abilities. Students were able to exhibit their clothing lines and models. The audience loved the performance. We are so incredibly proud of you, Keiana, and cannot wait to see what you accomplish in the Black Fashion Week and the fashion industry in the years to come.
