Not too shabby for Sarah Rosenbaum’s first event. As a producer at 67 Kilohertz (www.67khz.com), Sarah has been impressed with Chicago ’s musical talent, but felt the city needed a production that promoted the talent accordingly. Thus, Down Right Entertainment was born. Sarah teamed up with Shun Dyes of Crew Entertainment, the fashion division of Miracle Entertainment, to create Urban Exclusive, a platform for fashion and music to come together in Chicago .
The show’s introduction was presented by Vanessa Fraction of Barbershop 2 and MGD’s Kings and Queens of Comedy. Her lively presence and comedic dialogue commenced the runway presentations. Each designer was accompanied by a musical artist to create an entertaining visual and aural display. Donned in K~Fleye jewelry (www.kfleye.com), Fraction kept energy levels high and interacted with the crowd between each showcase.
Here was the show’s breakdown:
Afterwards, the “Prince of Fashion,” GM Clothing, graced the stage as Brando Star rapped on the mic.
