Fashion Week Columbus' Finale Runway Show designer Kevin Black
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.
