On Tuesday night, Threads of Color kicked off its yearlong calendar with a Salute to America soiree, held at the Bernstein Display Showroom in midtown. Founded by Ionia Dunn Lee, a former ESSENCE fashion editor, stylist and current LIM College professor, the non-profit Threads of Color awards college scholarships to aspiring fashionistas (like last night’s winner, fashion merchandising student Fallon Davis) and celebrates diversity in the industry. Student models ambled around the patriotically themed space in designs by the likes of Carmen Marc Valvo, Tracy Reese and Tommy Hilfiger, the latter of whom will be given a lifetime achievement award at Threads of Color’s big runway show this September.
