Lights, Camera, Action! Pittsburgh Fashion Week 2015 was a week full of fun, festivities, and of course FASHION!
Pittsburgh Fashion Week took place Sept. 21-27. Every day throughout the week, Pittsburgh’s unique and stylish sense of fashion was presented and displayed.
Curtains were pulled back on Sept. 26, for the Back-To-Basics Runway Show at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. The fashionable Runway Show was presented by three of the Art Institute’s very own students, Nicole O’Brien, Gerald Love, and Stephanie Moye’.
Moye’ was the only African American female fashion designer selected to be a part of the Back-To-Basics Runway Show, and left the audience wanting to see more of her breathe taking designs.
“My experience during Pittsburgh Fashion Week 2015 was exuberating, I felt at home, doing what I was born to do,” Moye’ said.
Moye’ was born and raised in Pittsburgh, and has had a passion for fashion since childhood.
“I create various types of fashion for a market of women who want unique styles, which makes them stand out from crowd,” she said.
The Art Institute of Pittsburgh had competition amongst the students studying fashion in order to select the top designers to be highlighted during Pittsburgh Fashion Week. Students were evaluated by Miyoshi Anderson and the founder of Pittsburgh Fashion Week and Fashion Director of the Art Institute, Stephanie Taylor.
“They had a process similar to Project Runway. There were two rounds of evaluations among designers. During round two, I had to work with garments which would be in the show,” Moye’ said.
After Moye’ and her impressive designs were selected to be a part of Pittsburgh Fashion Week, she had two months to prepare for her big debut.
“My inspiration was creating business wear that can be dressed up for events women attend after work. Often times women have had to hurry home to change clothes before they attend a play, their children’s events, or dinner with friends and family. I designed evening wear giving a variety of apparel for Red Carpet Events,” she said.
S. Moye’ Fashions stole the show during the Back-To-Baics Runway Show.
“I absolutely loved being a part of Pittsburgh Fashion Week! The energy, and such amazing fashion sense is incredible. Stephanie Moye’ is such a talented designer, and I enjoyed modeling her work,” Pittsburgh Fashion Week model, London Mariya said.
“Not only being a part of Pittsburgh Fashion Week has been a big moment in my modeling career, but also attending the events has been an experience of a lifetime, said model Justin Jones. “Everyone that was a part of Pittsburgh Fashion Week is so talented at what they do.”
S. Moye’ Fashions can be purchased on Moye’s website www.smoyefashions.com, and also at her hair salon Moye Hair Etc.! The hair salon is located in Penn Hills.
“I appreciate my fans and supporters to the utmost,” said Moye’.
