Harrisburg Fashion Week Recap
Jesus showed out this summer & blessed me with a job that marries two things I love writing and fashion. I am pleased to announce I am the Lead Blogger for Harrisburg Fashion Week(TM)! This was my first experience at an HFW fashion show. To be completely honest, I didn’t know what to expect. I was just excited to finally be at the show instead of watching from pictures on Facebook.
Harrisburg Fashion Week was a minefield of talent from the designers and models, to the vendors and performers I was blown away by the amount of talent displayed!!!!
HFW 2018 DESIGNERS
William Jeffries, “The Big Cheese”/Lead Designer at Jack & Jeff Denim Co. says his first show is: “Transitional, fun and trendsetting.” The ready-to-wear men’s sports line features a handsome teal that complemented the models’ complexions exceptionally. The standout piece was the orange track suite. See the collection on the HFW Facebook Page Here.

Arthur Parker is primarily a handbags and travel accessories designer. He describes the line’s motto as Pride, Style & Culture. The line features African inspired cloth and structured totes, duffle bags and clutches. The standout piece embodies the style and class in a timeless black and white cotton printed maxi dress. See the rest of the line on the HFW Facebook page here.
Was born in a dorm room on Virginia State University’s campus. The CEO & Designer, Ray creates all of the one-of-a-kind pieces himself, by hand. Falln thebrand is a line that features men’s screen-print tees and women’s jersey dresses while Falln persuasion is the spin-off swimsuit/women’s wear line. Ray says the show isn’t quite complete because he suffered a major inventory loss just before the show. But true to thebrand’s motto: Never Falln off the path of success. He decided to push forward and show the few pieces that remained. See the rest of the line on the HFW Facebook page here.
