It’s that time of year again where we head to Brooklyn, NY to bring our non-stop celebration of Black fashion, beauty and style to life with our ESSENCE Street Style Block Party.

Launched in 2014, the ESSENCE Street Style Block Party was created to provide a space where the fashion elite, style influencers, and everyday fashionistas can come to celebrate the unique influence Black women have on all facets of fashion, style and beauty during New York Fashion Week.
Bring your crew and join us, on September 9, from 12PM – 7PM as Insecure star and comedienne, Amanda Seales, hosts what’s sure to be the hottest ticket of NYFW. In addition to highlighting how we create and elevate some of the most talked-about fashion and style trends of the season, your ticket purchase will also allow you access to the following:
A variety of Black-owned vendors offering the season’s must-have products and services will be on hand to provide you with a unique shopping experience like no other.
An Awards Ceremony
This year’s Street Style event will honor songstress, chef and style maven Kelis and fashion influencer Kellie Brown, who will each be on hand to receive their awards.
Music & Performances
Multi-talented songstress, dancer, model and actress Teyana Taylor, and Afropop superstar Yemi Alade, will each hit the Street Style stage with performances you certainly won’t want to miss. Meanwhile, DJ Olivia Dope and DJ Jasmine Solano will be on hand to keep the party going from the turntables.
A Fashion Show
And because no event celebrating all things Black women and style would be complete without YOU, we’ll also be bringing back our signature Street Style fashion show, featuring a host of the local fashionistas who bring the hottest looks from the catwalk to life on the city sidewalks every day.
A family-friendly event, this year’s Street Style Block Party will also include a space where your mini divas and fly-guys in-training can take part in kid-approved activities.
Bring your style AND your appetite, because there’ll be no shortage of food vendors serving up delicious eats and refreshing beverages to enjoy as we usher in the fabulous fall season.
