Essence is so much more than just a magazine for black women. Essence has become the number one media, technology, and commerce company for black women to date. This year Essence held their Essence Fashion House in NYC at Affirmation Arts, to continue the celebration of the first Essence Best in Black Fashion Awards. Essence Fashion House brought together black designers, stylists, influencers, and fashions lovers for an all-day fashion extravaganza. During the day-long event, guests were apart of panel discussions, a master class, and runway shows.
