One simply could not tell the difference between an Oscar de la Renta show and a Howard Homecoming fashion show. The two are immeasurably similar in quality and both showcase the skills of designers, models, and production teams.

The fashion show consisted of unique apparel and fashion collections. One of the first apparels to be presented at the fashion was E Pluribus Unum by Shaquille Frederick. Models strutted down the runway wearing the simplistic, rose embroidered apparel as Future’s “Mask Off” blared in the background. The fashion show provided an opportunity for designers such as Frederick to showcase their hard work.

Unexpectedly, Under Armour was one of the many brands to display their latest pieces at Howard. Models rocked Under Armour’s sporty dresses, exercise attire, matching sets, etc. In the midst of the modeling, rapper Shy Glizzy made a surprise appearance. Performing his verse in Goldlink’s  “Crew”, Glizzy single handedly increased the hype among the crowd. Not too many universities have Under Armour exclusively presented and a surprise visit from Shy Glizzy all in the same night.

The fashion show continued with more demonstrations of other designers fashions. Other brands such as Merced Verbena, Gray Scale and gowns by Lillie displayed their work on the runway. Merced Verbena incorporated a consistent theme of the color blue throughout the fashions. The crowd became quite enthused in the demonstration of the brands baby blue, gown-length bubble coat that flared out on either sides. The eye-catching bubble coat had also been previously modeled by public figure India Love.

The show ended with demonstrations of gowns by Lillie. Models pranced the runway with bridal gowns, formal evening gowns and black-tie event dresses. At the end of the demonstration, all of the participating designers and models of the fashion show made another appearance signaling the end of the show. It’s safe to say the Pulse fashion show made another iconic stake in history at the Mecca.
