The Kitchen Salon is presenting FROhio Fashion Week in partnership with Mott Mane Mondays & Friends of the Mott Branch Library, and Natural Hair Stylist/Poet CC of Transformations Salon & CCs Lyricist Lounge.
In celebration of natural hair, beauty & fashion we wanted to do something fun and enlightening at the same time! So FROhio Fashion kicks off with a Head Wrapping and Accessorizing workshop. Sister Lladheena Shabazz will be demonstrating several different ways to rock a head wrap! Bring your fabric, old tees, old skirts, scarves and other accessories to see how to incorporate them into your overall fashion. There will also be video demonstrations on how to re-purpose old jewelry and make them into accessories you can use. You don’t want to miss this awesome workshop and it’s FREE!
Our monthly product swap will also be a part of this Mott Mane Monday event, as it is every 4th Monday of each month at the Mott branch Library located at 1085 Dorr Street in Toledo, Ohio.
The Midweek Film festival is being rescheduled due to technical difficulties, so stay tuned for another announcement. The One Story Project Founderr, Nicole Tarver has been working on an awesome documentary entitled “Is that your real hair” featuring naturals from the Toledo area. Please stay tuned for updates on the film premiere!
On Saturday, December 1, 2012 FROhio Fashion Week will close out with Afros & Cyphers, a poetic event celebrating natural hair, natural beauty and natural talent! This open mic format is open to the public and all are invited to bring their favorite original poems and songs or a favorite poem by an author. Read, recite, perform the night away with other naturals and natural talents in the local area. Special features will also appear! The cover for this event is $5 at the door and products will be available from The Kitchen Salon for purchase as well as Holiday themed concessions.
