To be a native of Louisiana and finally experience New Orleans Fashion Week was like a dream come true. Coming into Fashion Week, I was clearly intimated by the location of the venues, sharing rooms with celebrities, models, designers, socialites. Attending as a blogger and not a model put my mindset in a new level of stress to ‘perform’ if you will. Being in the right position, getting the right shot, and so many other things plagued my mind – that is until I got there.
Despite it being the last night of New Orleans Fashion Week 2018, the venue was set and my destination was The Monastery. Although I am from Baton Rouge, knowing the location of the venue meant that it would not disappoint. One of the many designer’s collection that captivated me was Clinton Whitney Downing. Clinton is known for his raw eye for fashion as a designer and his forward-thinking as an overall artist. This world is simply being graced with his talent. Check out his collection for the show:
And the finale!
Clinton Whitney Downing can be found here at his website. One of many talented artists who allowed us to view their amazing and beautiful work. What a year for fashion!
