Last night in Atlanta, TheKidzJump.com, had the opportunity to attend KONTROL Magazine's "Fashion Jam's" fashion, and music showcase. The event served as a fashion and live music expo with a portion of the proceeds going to AIDAtlanta. Trina, Hip Hop’s Diamond Princess, took the stage to perform a medley of her greatest hits, and also played MC for the evening.
The event, held at a private venue - Social Haven in the midtown area of Atlanta, boasted tons of fashion potential. A lot of the designers were amateur in terms of their sewing work, but they all possessed a clear direction in which they're growing towards. A lot of avant-garde-esque pieces graced the runway, while others where lackluster in their creative efforts.

Now, I can't speak on the negative without speaking on the positive. My favorite part of the evening, and usually my favorite part at any event, was the "red carpet" or step-and-repeat in this case. I love seeing all of the gorgeous celebrities, and celebrity wanna-bees, strut their stuff on the red carpet. Last nights red carpet, was hosted by Love & Hip Hop Reality Star, Erica Dixon - and she was a pleasure to watch interviewing her peers, and some unknowns on the carpet.
On a scale from 1-10, I'd have to give Fashion Jams a solid 6'! The vision was there for the event, however there wasn't much follow through.
