The International Natural Hair Meetup Day was held Saturday May 30, 2015. Various locations throughout the world held this event. I attended the International Natural Hair Meet Up that was held in Pittsburgh, PA. The Pittsburgh based natural hair group It’s a Natural Thang sponsored this event In addition to having wonderful vendors, this event concluded with a special presentation. The presentation was called “International Hair, The Diaspora Edition: The drum, the braid, the dance.” The presentation documented the story of African descendants and gave an account of hairstyles/headwraps and dance traditions.

2014 marked the fifth year for Pittsburgh Fashion Week. The fashion action took place September 22-28, 2014. I recently attended the Macy’s Fashion Rocks fashion show that was held at the Macy’s in Downtown Pittsburgh. This fashion show displayed fashions you can wear for work that easily transitions for an evening out on the town. Guests also got a sneak preview of student designs from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. There were light refreshments from Savoy Restaurant in Pittsburgh.
