So what's Black and Hot at Fashion Week?

That would of course be Sean John, closing the week of fashion in NYC with his show @ Caprini Midtown East.

Yes, Diddy does it again showcasing his Fall '08 line of dress casual mens wear sported appropiately by fine, lean men of color from dark chocolate deluxe to vanila chai, featuring none other than our own fav super male-model, Tyson Beckford.

Donning very wearable sweaters, pants and overcoats in warm hues of brown and black, the men marched out with look after look of mod black professional, grown man style. While no one piece jumped out and wowed me, I was overall impressed with vibe, feel and look of the show from the clothes, to the dark lighting and decor.

Starting a fashionable half hour or so late, the audience filled with fab industrynistas with a front row lined with familiar faces such as Q-Tip, Fabulous, Trey Songs, Bad Boy Artist Cassie (alleged luv
interest) and Spike Lee sitting with Diddy's mom.

With a new and tight security detail, one had to remember they were not on line @ the China Club but overall the show ran smoothly.

Diddy closed the show with a last walk to Lupe Fiasco's "Superstar" and in true superstar fashion with Tyson .B by his side, Diddy flashed the crowd a huge honest grin, blowing kisses and saying gracious thank yous.

In his program, he thanked Black Fashion designing predecessors including Willi Smith, Patrick Kelly, Karl Kani, Byron Lars, Stephen Burrows, Patrick Robison, and Tracy Reese and credited them for paving the way for him live out his dream.

For once I can say Did was a class act that could make us Black Folks proud, esp. in the lily white Fashion Week arena. Yay.
