Fashion Week Columbus' Finale Runway Show designer Kevin Black


Age: 30
Hometown: Miami

Background: I studied business at Central State University, and I've also studied at Columbus College of Art & Design and the Art Institute.

Approach to fashion: I take an organic approach to fashion; I design clothes that make me feel good and then transfer that energy into the garment.

Style is … personality and self-expression

Most looking forward to … the diversity of designer showcasing this year, as well as the introduction of premium designers

My Fashion Week Columbus collection in five words or less: Luxurious, exquisite, powerful, chic, wearable

The celebrity I'd most like to dress: Rihanna

The Columbusite I'd most like to dress: Yolanda Harris

The worst fashion faux pas: Women not dressing appropriately for their body type

I never leave home without … my sketchbook

My favorite local boutique: Couture on High

My hope for Columbus fashion: My hope is that Columbus is respected for not only the dollar that is driven here in the city, but for our impeccable style and fashion.
