Macy’s partnered with couture and ready-to-wear designer B Michael to produce the first b michael America runway fashion show at this year’s NAACP Image Awards luncheon, which honored the nominees of the 47th annual NAACP Image Awards, on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2016, at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, CA.
Actress and singer Brandy Norwood, known for her work on “Moesha,” “I Still Know What You Did Last Summer,” and “Cinderella,” walked in the fashion show. B Michael previously dressed the star for her media junkets during her run in “Chicago” on Broadway and also collaborated with her costume designer on her new series for BET, “Zoe Ever After.”
“I’m proud to be a part of the NAACP Image Awards luncheon and celebrate the exemplary works by undeniably talented nominees who work so hard to promote diversity in the arts,” said B. Michael. “It’s an honor to dress Brandy again for the fashion show, and I’m grateful to have the continued support of Macy’s, which has been such a valuable partner.”
Following a panel discussion, the fashion show featured social dresses
from the b michael America Red social dress collection, available at
select Macy’s stores and on macys.com, and closed with several pieces
from his couture collection.
