This was Willie Gee's 2nd Installment of one-of-a-kind designs by Malcolm Williams, the show named for his Grandmother who always encouraged him to persue his dreams...and I'm so glad she did!
Malcolm is one of thee best designers I've seen in Pittsburgh and even on a larger scale like NY and Paris. With flowy designs that scream High Fashion!
Malcolm is seen here with one of his designs from the bridal collection.
Willie Gee's always features more than just Malcolm's designs. He features other up and coming designers including student designer Cary D. Heard that I've featured in the Soul Pitt Quarterly and debuted his designs in the 2011 PFW Student Show.
This young designer has a great eye for fashion and thinks outside the box when it comes to street wear, club wear and prom gear! I love his twist on the Prom Gear...I think we're all over the same prints and cut out patchwork prom designs.
Usually you just see the guys in a colored vest and tieto match the dress but Cary has taken it to a new deminsion with his printed vest and ties to match the pattern of the dress.
In addition to the Classy Designs Malcolm does, he also adds a funky flair to his shows. Going for the WOW factor he creates unimaginable designs that make for an exciting show! These designs should be on display in the Art Institute or some museum of art.
The paper skirt - made from magazine pages was one of my favorites! Malcolm in gold sequin Hammer Pants received roses after the outstanding show.
I also LOVED the magazine layered dress with fusia feathered bodice!
After the show I caught of with some of the lovely models Serena Bond, Danielle Jackson & LaTonia Davis.
The Trendy Trio...
The Wild Pair and Laced Up...
And ladies in Ruffles!
